Tomorrow outbreaks of rain continue in the south west and to begin with they will be heavy. During the course of the day the rain may extend eastwards across some southern coastal counties but it becomes lighter and patchier. Elsewhere it remains dry and bright. The warmest conditions will be in sheltered parts of the west as a keen easterly wind pegs back temperatures.
