Saturday starts with showery rain in the north west of the UK. Elsewhere it is dry but there is more cloud around than recently. Through the day patchy rain continues to affect Northern Ireland and Scotland. Other areas will be mostly dry, although a few light showers are possible in central and south eastern counties. Cloud steadily breaks and in the afternoon sunny spells become more widespread.

Temperatures range from 11C (52F) in the far north to 18C (64F) in the south. See the rain radar for the latest view.
