UK winter 2019/20 Update 2 [NEW]

Tomorrow heavy and thundery outbreaks of rain spread northeastwards across much of the country. They could lead to a lot of surface water on the roads and difficult driving conditions. To the south brighter skies return but showers bubble up. Parts of north eastern England and Scotland probably remain dry and bright until the late afternoon or evening.

Unsettled and autumnal outlook

During Monday showery rain steadily clears from Scotland. To its south brighter spells develop but another band of wet weather pushes into the south west. The rain extends across much of England and Wales overnight.

Through Tuesday heavy rain spreads northeastwards and in southern counties showery conditions return. Northern Scotland could remain dry for most of the day. It will be windy in the south.

The rest of the week looks unsettled and autumnal. A deep area of low pressure becomes centred close to Scotland so all regions have rain and strong winds at times. Temperatures won't be too far off the seasonal norm.
