Low pressure will be dominating the weather across Britain and Ireland for the next few days bring spells of wet and windy weather to many regions whilst temperatures will drop back down to nearer normal values following the recent mild conditions.
If you take a look at the rainfall radar this morning you will see that it's a wet start to Wednesday across many regions with only the far southeast of England and the northeast of Scotland starting dry. It won't last though as that rain continues to push north-eastwards, the rain locally heavy and persistent, but drier conditions will return to Ireland this morning before extending to all but the far northeast and far southeast by this afternoon. There will be some sunny spells developing too, but further showers will break out towards the northwest. Top temperatures today will again be above normal for the second half of February, ranging from 11°C to 14°C quite widely despite the rain and brisk winds.
After a drier interlude, freshening winds will bring showery outbreaks of rain in from the west tonight and there is the potential for some quite lively weather as squally winds and locally very heavy outbreaks of rain sweep eastwards. This active band of weather may take its time to clear central and eastern parts of England tomorrow but once it does it will leave many areas under a colder, blustery westerly airstream with sunny spells and showers, the showers turning wintry at times, especially over higher ground.
