Low pressure remains in charge of the weather across Britain and Ireland to end the working week as it slowly fills close to or across the northwest of the country. This means many areas can expect to see further showers or longer spells of rain today, but for some it will actually end up as a much drier and brighter day compared to yesterday.
We start this morning with the last of yesterday's wet weather still affecting the far northeast of Scotland and the Northern Isles whilst showers are affecting many northern and western regions of Britain and Ireland. However, for central, southern and eastern districts of England it will be a drier start to the day with sunny spells developing and for East Anglia and southeast England it will be a mostly dry and fine day with any showers likely to arrive after dark. Elsewhere and it will be a day of some sunny spells but also plenty of showers circulating around that low pressure system, these heaviest and most frequent towards the north and west where some longer spells of rain are also likely. It will be another breezy day with temperatures reaching near normal values, ranging from 6°C to 8°C in the north and 9°C to 11°C in the south.
Cloud and showers will linger on into this evening for many areas but will gradually ease overnight only to be replaced by the next band of rain pushing in from the southwest, this rain reaching many western and southern regions overnight. That band of rain, accompanied by blustery winds, will continue to push north and east tomorrow, becoming slow-moving across parts of Scotland as further showers follow into the south to keep the changeable theme going.
