Low pressure centred over the northern UK brings periods of heavy rain to north and western regions. Showery for many places, while some eastern & southeastern parts of England may stay dry. Windy across southern counties, gales around coasts and headlands. Temperatures up to 22C in the southeast, nearer 16 to 20C for most, cooler where rain persists.
Low pressure pulls away slowly toward the northeast but leaves a legacy of showers or some longer spells of rain for northern Britain and Ireland. Brighter with sunny spells and passing showers in the south. Blustery winds, although easing compared to previous days. Cool in the north, fairly warm in the south. High temperatures at 14 to 23C.
Detail is uncertain but most places should see a bright day with scattered showers as a west to northwesterly air flow dominates. Showers more frequent and heavier for northern and western areas. Drier and brighter to the southeast. High temperatures at 14 to 21C.
A general westerly airflow is likely though there are indications that an area of low pressure may approach from the southwest later bringing strong winds and outbreaks of heavy rain to Ireland and the southern UK. High temperatures at 13 to 20C.
