An unsettled day as low pressure spirals across Britain. Areas of heavy showers as well as longer spells of rain across the country. The most prolonged heavy rain across central and northern England, also Wales early in the day, then tending to break up into clusters of showers for Wales and the southwest. Windy across southern Britain, risk of gales for a time around exposed coasts. Highs 14 to 20C.
Low pressure moves into the northern North Sea, although the country remains beneath a generally showery weather pattern. Sunny spells and some locally heavy bursts of rain are expected, although Ireland and some western areas of the UK should see an improvement in conditions as the day progresses as higher pressure ridges in from the Atlantic. Feeling fresh with a westerly breeze, 15 to 21C.
Ridging high pressure continues to influence better conditions on Thursday, although there will be some developing showers, these mainly towards southern and eastern areas, but plenty of dry conditions and sunny spells about for other regions. Feeling a bit warmer, especially in the south. Highs at 17 to 23C.
Pressure is likely to stay fairly high toward the south, maintaining a generally fair day for central and southern England & Wales. Further north across Britain and Ireland, a fresher southwesterly breeze is likely to bring cloudier skies plus patchy rain in from the Atlantic. A few showers spreading eastward. Highs 16 to 22C.
A west or southwesterly breeze is likely to prevail. Greatest risk of cloud and periods of rain toward the northwest, whilst central and southeastern Britain should be drier and warmer. Highs ranging between 16 and 24C.
A westerly pattern continues, although higher pressure is attempting to build in from the southwest again. Expect sunshine and a few showers, these most frequent toward the west and north, passing eastward by afternoon. Highs 16 to 23C.
