Typical eh? The first mention of a hosepipe ban and the weather says "Eh? Hold my beer..." as it always seems to do.
Today though we have low pressure coming in from the West, but the system is complicated by another system further West which brings more substantial rainfall tomorrow. The effect of having another system behind it in such close proximity means that the deepening of the system today becomes that more relaxed and the energy as a result moves back West into tomorrows system.
Anyway, enough of talking about energy and this morning we have some showers across Western areas of Scotland, Southwest Wales and Southwest England where some of these are rather sharp in nature. The cloud remains across Southern areas today and the best of the sunshine across Eastern Scotland and Northeast England. Later this afternoon and some more persistent rainfall heads into Southwest Ireland which is the next low pressure system and this one bringing more active showers and thunderstorms across England and Wales tomorrow.
Temperatures today pretty much par for the course for this time of year with 19-21C across Ireland, 14-17C across Scotland although Eastern Scotland could see 18-20C. Across England and the best of the temperatures for Central and Eastern areas where 22-24C should the top temperature this afternoon.
