Very wet early next week?

Thursday brings mixed weather. In Scotland showers could merge to give longer spells of rain. There could also be some heavy showers in southern and eastern England. Elsewhere it remains mainly dry and bright.

The rather cool and showery theme continues on Friday. By the weekend the showers may become more scattered as high pressure builds. Temperatures are also expected to rise and it should feel pleasantly warm.

Forecast confidence for early next week is low. However computer models are suggesting the likelihood of heavy outbreaks of rain spreading northwards.
