Saturday starts with a band of rain affecting parts of northern England, Wales and Northern Ireland. It is also wet in western Scotland but other areas are mainly dry with variable amounts of cloud. Through the day outbreaks of rain spread southwards across England and Wales. Some of them will be heavy, particularly in the east. In the north west of the UK patchy spells of rain continue but other parts of the north become drier. It will be windy.

Temperatures this afternoon range from 13C (55F) in the wet areas to 18C (64F) in sunny spells. See the rain radar for the latest view.

Warming up next week

Monday starts mostly dry and bright but through the day scattered showers bubble up in southern and central counties. The north should be dry and bright.

During Tuesday and Wednesday outbreaks of rain are expected to push into the north west. Other parts of the country should have sunny spells and it will feel quite warm.

Through the rest of the week there is a still lot of uncertainty. Areas of low pressure may start to approach from the Atlantic  bringing an increasing risk of rain to western parts of the UK. In the east it is more likely to be sunny and warm, although the risk of thundery showers could increase.
