It is a wet and windy start to Sunday across much of the UK with a band of heavy rain pushing northwards as low pressure and its associated frontal systems take control of the weather. This rain will continue to head north today with brighter and more showery conditions following into the south, but further unsettled weather is on the way for the next couple of days.
A dull and wet start across many regions then with some heavy bursts of rain around, and although it's starting dry across the far north of Scotland outbreaks of rain, and mountain snow, will arrive here during today with much of Scotland seeing a wet day, although the extreme north and the Northern Isles will probably remain dry for much of daylight hours. Meanwhile drier and brighter conditions currently approaching the far southwest of England and Wales will follow the rain band northwards, reaching much of England, Wales and Northern Ireland during the day, but showers will break out this afternoon, some of these turning heavy with hail and thunder in places. With a brisk east/south-easterly wind ahead of the rain band it will be another chilly day with temperatures only picking up to reach maximums of 9°C to 12°C in the north, but it will turn much warmer in the brighter conditions further south with temperatures over England and Wales reaching highs of 15°C to 19°C.
Rain and showers will gradually become more confined to Scotland tonight with many other parts of the UK seeing a lot of cloud lingering on but it will be a milder night for many with south-westerly winds developing. Looking ahead to the start of the new week and Monday will be fine for many apart from a few showers in the north and west, but later in the day heavy rain will arrive across southern districts as the next weather system moves in.
