Although low pressure is in charge for the end of the working week, we have something of a north/south split this morning with northern regions of the UK starting off on a rather cloudy note with some showery rain whilst for many southern regions, away from western coasts, it is a mainly sunny start to the day.
Skies will tend to brighten across much of Scotland today although the far north and the Northern Isles will hold onto a fair amount of cloud. Meanwhile, elsewhere, showers will develop and break out quite widely again by this afternoon, turning heavy at times, bringing the risk of some hail and a rumble or two of thunder along with some gusty winds. Once again, as always is the case with showery set-ups, some places will catch a number of showers whilst others escape and stay mostly dry for much of the day. Top temperatures today will generally be in the range of 10°C to 13°C, but feeling cooler in the blustery winds which will be strongest in the south.
As low pressure tracks across northern Britain tonight so further showers or longer spells of rain can be expected in many areas along with some blustery winds, especially in the south, but some longer drier spells will develop in places later in the night. Tomorrow sees that low starting to pull away to the east allowing colder air to move into the far north whilst sunshine and showers will affect many regions again before more persistent rain moves into the south late on.
