Unsettled weather for a time

During Thursday outbreaks of rain spread southeastwards. By early afternoon brighter and fresher conditions are expected to follow on to all regions. However, heavy showers then return to Scotland and Northern Ireland. 

Friday starts showery in the north. Elsewhere it looks dry but through the afternoon rain pushes northeastwards. The south east as well as the northern half of Scotland probably stay mostly dry. 

The weekend begins with a risk of rain in all regions. During Saturday brighter conditions return from the west but showers continue in the north. By Sunday it could become drier and warmer in much of the country but outbreaks of rain possibly  return in the north west.

Next week is looking mainly dry in the south  and east. In the north and west it will be more changeable. Some computer model runs are showing hot conditions later on with temperatures climbing above 30C (86F). At the moment it is too early to be confident about that outcome.
