Friday starts with heavy rain in the south west and southern coastal counties. Elsewhere it is dry. Through the day wet and windy weather spreads northwards and reaches the Scottish borders by early evening. In much of the south it turns brighter and showery this afternoon, but persistent rain continues in Wales and the south west. Northern Ireland and Scotland have showers.  

Temperatures range from 12C (54F) in the wet areas to 19C (66F) where it is brighter. Northern Scotland could be the warmest part of the country. See the rain radar for the latest view.

Tonight the wet weather becomes slow moving. It affects northern England, Wales and probably extends into Northern Ireland later on. To the south of it there will be heavy showers. Much of Scotland remains dry.

Gradual change next week?

By Sunday showery weather returns to all of the UK. The showers become heavy and at times they could merge to give longer spells of rain. Sheltered parts of the south east and East Anglia have the highest temperatures, but it stays cool for June.

The mixed theme continues during the first half of next week. Showers or longer spells of rain are likely at times, particularly in the southern half of the UK. In the north it may be more settled as high pressure centred to the northwest begins to have more influence.
