Mixed outlook for the UK

[Updated 08:00 21/09/2017]

Autumn scene

Changeable weather continues in the north and west, but the south and east should often be dry in the coming days. Next week's forecast details are uncertain with the border between high pressure to the east and the Atlantic flow becoming close to the UK.

Thursday starts wet in much of Scotland, Wales and western England. Through the day the rain slowly pushes eastwards, reaching central and eastern England by the late afternoon. Brighter and drier conditions follow on, although scattered showers are likely in Northern Ireland.

Temperatures range from 11C (52F) in the north west to 20C (68F) in the south east. See the the rainfall radar for the latest view.

Tonight wet weather pushes across the north west of the UK. Elsewhere it remains dry.

Tomorrow a band of rain spreads eastwards but it becomes increasingly patchy. Southern and eastern areas should stay  dry with sunny spells. 

The weekend is looking mixed. Much of the country has a dry Saturday but thicker cloud is likely to bring some rain to the north west. On Sunday wet weather probably spreads into the west but the east remains fine.

The latest Buzz update 'All change please' looks at the likelihood of high pressure building in the coming days. TWO's second winter 2017/18 discussion is available.
