Temperatures range from 7C (45F) in the north to 11C (52F) in the south. See the rain radar for the latest view.

Unsettled and possibly quite cold

During Saturday wet and windy weather affects much of the country but there will be some brighter spells too. Gales are likely in coastal counties around the southern half of the UK and in northern Scotland. It will feel quite chilly.

Sunday is looking drier and brighter for many, however showers are expected in the south west, Wales and Northern Ireland. Temperatures will be close to the seasonal average. 

Next week areas of low pressure keep the weather unsettled. It could become quite cold and the chance of snow in the north may increase.
