Friday starts with outbreaks of rain in much of the UK and in the north they are heavy. Drier conditions have returned to Wales, south west England and Northern Ireland. This morning the rain should quickly clear eastwards. In southern counties it will be very patchy and some places remain dry. During the afternoon sunny periods develop widely but there will be showers in the north and more persistent spells of rain in the north west. Very windy for the time of year with gales in the north west.    

Temperatures range from 12C (54F) in the north west to 22C (72F) in the south east.

Improving for Bank Holiday Monday

By Sunday high pressure starts to build back across the south so the risk of showers becomes increasingly restricted to the north. Winds will be lighter than recently and in the sun it will feel warmer. 

Bank Holiday Monday is expected to be mostly fine and warm. The exception is the far north west where outbreaks of rain are possible. Temperatures could reach 26C (78F) in the south and 23C (73F) in eastern Scotland.

Mainly settled and warm conditions should continue through Tuesday and Wednesday, although an odd shower is possible. Guidance for the rest of the week suggests a more mixed picture, although in the south it should often be dry and quite warm.
