By the early evening wet weather affects affect Wales, Northern Ireland and much of England, although the east probably remains dry.

Temperatures range 18C (64F) in the west to 21C (70F) in East Anglia. See the rain radar for the latest view.

UK winter 2019/20 Update 2 [NEW]

Tomorrow morning heavy rain is expected in the southern half of Britain. There is the potential for surface flooding and travel disruption. During the afternoon brighter spells return from the west but further downpours are likely. The northern half of the country may escape the worst of the weather for much of the day, although heavy rain pushes into northern England and southern Scotland later on. It will be quite windy in the south.

Unsettled outlook

Wednesday begins with a mix of sunshine and showers. It should turn drier as the day progresses. Temperatures will be close to the seasonal average but it should feel pleasant in the sun.  

During Thursday another band of rain moves southeastwards across all regions. Blustery and showery conditions follow it in the west.

The rest of the week looks unsettled. 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.
