Sunday starts with showery rain in central Scotland. Elsewhere it is mainly dry. Through the day there will be sunny spells but showers develop in the west and push eastwards. The heaviest ones are expected to be in northern and western areas. Lighter winds and more sunshine make it feel warmer than yesterday.

Temperatures range from 12C (54F) in the wet areas to 20C (68F) in the London area. See the rain radar for the latest view.

Exceptionally wet in the south

The unsettled theme continues through Tuesday and Wednesday. Areas of low pressure become slow moving over England and Wales as high pressure remains centred over Greenland. Wet weather continues in much of England and Wales leading to the risk of localised flooding.   

Forecast confidence for the second half of the week is low. On balance a continuation of the changeable theme is favoured. However persistent spells of rain probably are replaced by more showery conditions. It remains cool for the time of year.
