A rather misty and murky start to the weekend with a fair amount of low cloud around for many regions as low pressure finally pulls away to the east today allowing for a ridge of high pressure to try and build in from the west.
It is a sunnier start towards the northwest of the UK though and for much of Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland it will be a fine and dry day with further spells of sunshine and just the very low risk of an odd very isolated shower breaking out. Meanwhile, for England and Wales there will be more cloud around with some rain and drizzle affecting parts of northeast England, along with southeast Scotland at first, but this will tend to sink south and become lighter and more showery in nature during the day. Many other parts of England and Wales will otherwise hang onto a fair amount of cloud with a few scattered showers breaking out again, but generally they will be lighter and more scattered than recently. Temperatures today will range from 18°C in the north to 22°C in the south so feeling pleasant in the sunnier spots.
Any remaining showers will tend to die out this evening to leave many areas dry with clear spells overnight and where skies are clear it will turn cooler than recent nights with temperatures dipping back down into single figures in parts of the north. Cloud will start to increase in the west though ahead of the next frontal system that will be pushing in bringing outbreaks of rain to the west and north during tomorrow, but towards the south and east it should be another dry and bright day.
