A quieter start to the day for many regions as Storm Agnes pulls away to the northeast, however, another system will be moving in from the west and southwest later today and tonight to bring further showers or spells of rain with it.
Showery outbreaks of rain are still affecting parts of Scotland and northern England this morning, especially towards the north and west, but for many areas it will be a dry, bright and mild start to the day. Most places will then see plenty of fine and dry weather today with some good sunny spells and just the odd shower passing through. Cloud will tend to increase and thicken towards the west though and by this afternoon showery outbreaks of rain, locally heavy, will be pushing in across Ireland and Northern Ireland, perhaps reaching parts of Wales and southwest England. Temperatures today will be close to or just above normal for the end of September, ranging from 16°C to 19°C in many regions although it will still be rather breezy, especially in the north.
Those showery outbreaks of rain continue on their journey east tonight bringing some locally heavy outbreaks in places but they will tend to become confined to southeast England by the morning to leave many areas drier with a few showers in the west and northwest. This takes us into a mainly dry and bright day tomorrow with just the odd shower feeding in from the west.
