High pressure completes the process of moving from the Southwest to the North of the British Isles today and as a result we see winds turning to a more Easterly direction and starting to develop into a rather keen breeze this afternoon.
Some early showers across Northwestern areas of England this morning, but these will die away quickly as high pressure develops to the North and by this afternoon any risk of showers will be confined to parts of Western Scotland to the lee of the Cairngorm range.
The best of the sunshine today across more sheltered areas of Western and Southwestern England and Wales with cloud becoming a little thicker across Eastern and Northeastern coastal areas as the cloud starts rolling in from the North Sea, this could well be thick enough in some places across East Anglia for a few showers to develop inland this afternoon.
Top temperatures today across more Western areas as you might expect with 21-23C for parts of the West country and Western Ireland, but for Eastern areas in that breeze and cloud we are more likely to see 17-19C, but add on the breeze and it might feel a degree or two cooler.
