The weather remains rather quiet again today across much of the UK despite low pressure centred to the north of the country being the dominant feature. This low is sending it's associated weather fronts into north-western areas, but they are rather weak with the rain generally showery in nature. As we move towards the weekend the showers do look set to become more widespread as low pressure places itself over the country.
Back to this morning and for many places it is a dry start to the day with some sunny spells, the best of these towards the south and east of the country. There is more cloud the further north and west that you go, and some showery outbreaks of rain, the heaviest and most persistent of these over northern and western Scotland. The showers will continue here throughout the day, perhaps spreading into parts of northern England, but for most other parts it will be another predominantly dry day with sunny spells and variable amounts of cloud. Temperatures will be a touch down on those seen yesterday, especially towards the southeast with maximums here of 24°C, but cooler towards the northwest whilst there will be a more noticeable breeze in most places.
Apart from a few showers in the northwest, it will be a dry night for many and feeling a touch fresher than recently towards the south. Looking ahead to tomorrow and showers in the north and west will tend to become heavier and more frequent as well as slowly spreading further southeast with the best of the weather again towards southeast England, but by the weekend the showery theme will spread to most places.
