A benign start to Sunday for most regions with early mist, fog and low cloud tending to lift and clear this morning to leave many parts of the mainland UK fine and dry with sunny spells and variable amounts of cloud, the thickest of which may just produce a very isolated shower.
However, out towards the west there is more the way of cloud moving in from off the Atlantic, this cloud thickening and bringing outbreaks of rain and drizzle to the far southwest of England and southwest Ireland this morning before it spreads further north across Ireland and into Northern Ireland during the day, perhaps fringing the far west of Wales and the Western Isles of Scotland later on. Some of that rain will turn heavy and persistent so it will be a wet afternoon for some of these western regions.
Maximum temperatures today will range from 18°C to 20°C in the north and west to a warmer 21°C to 24°C elsewhere as we start to draw in some warmer air from the south once more thanks to southerly winds which will be picking up in the west.
Tonight sees further spells of rain pushing north-eastwards across the north and west of the country before drier conditions return to the far northwest. Towards the south and east of England it will remain mostly dry and the dry weather continues here tomorrow with sunny spells helping lift temperatures into the mid-twenties, It will be cloudier across central areas with some rain at times whilst to the north and northwest it will be brighter and cooler.
