Mild today but unsettled

The new working week begins wet in central and western Scotland. Elsewhere it is dry and very mild.

Today the rain in the north west slowly pushes southwards into northern England, and showery conditions follow on behind it. Central and southern regions stay dry and a few sunny spells develop. See the rainfall and precipitation type radar for the latest view.

It will be quite windy, especially in the north but despite this a notably mild day is in prospect. If cloud breaks sufficiently temperatures in England temperatures could reach 18C (64F), and to the east of the Scottish mountains 15C (59F) is possible. 

Tonight rain spreads eastwards across England and Wales, and showers continue in the far north west. Other areas remain mostly dry. It will be very mild in the south.

Tomorrow wet and windy weather extends over much of the north and west of the UK. Southern and eastern England should be mostly dry and very mild, but during the afternoon there could be some patchy rain.

Mid-week brings more mild weather to southern and central Britain, but in the north temperatures take a dip. All areas see further rain and snow is likely over the Scottish Highlands. In the north gale force winds are expected at times.

Unsettled weather continues through Friday and the weekend. The south probably remains quite mild but in northern regions it will be colder with a chance of snow on high ground. Buzz investigates.

The 16 day GEFS shows a very mild start but temperatures drop during the second half of the week. Through the rest of the period changeable weather is expected.
