Cool weekend

During Saturday more persistent outbreaks of rain spread southwards across England and Wales. They could be heavy at times, particularly in the east. Brighter conditions follow from the north but another area of rain may push into Scotland. Cool and windy. 

Sunday starts mostly dry and bright. Through the day showers bubble up but many places could miss them. In the south it will feel a little warmer and winds won't be as strong as they have been recently.

Early next week there should be more dry weather around as high pressure  builds in from the west. In the longer term there is a lot of uncertainty.
