Temperatures range 8C (46F) in northern Scotland to 20C (68F) in the south. See the rain radar for the latest view.

More rain on the way

During Wednesday a band of rain pushes northeastwards across the UK, although it probably remains dry in much of Scotland. Brighter conditions follow follow but later in the day further heavy showery rain pushes into the south west and Wales.  

Through the rest of the week it is looking unsettled as areas of low pressure push in from the Atlantic. All regions could see showers or longer spells of rain and daytime temperatures are forecast to be close to the seasonal average. In exposed locations there is a risk of gales.
