Thursday starts wet in much of the southern half of the UK. In the north it is dry. Through the day heavy outbreaks of rain spread northeastwards reaching southern Scotland and Northern Ireland later this afternoon. Brighter conditions return into central and south eastern England. To the north of the rain band there will be some sunny spells too and this is where the warmest conditions are likely. 

Temperatures range from 15C (59F) to 23C (73F). See the rain radar for the latest view.

Mixed outlook

On Saturday a ridge of high pressure keeps it dry and bright in central and eastern areas. In the west cloud thickens and outbreaks of rain push in from the Atlantic through the second half of the day. Winds strengthen and there is a risk of gales in parts of the west overnight.

During Sunday the band of rain becomes lighter and patchier as it clears southeastwards. Brighter conditions follow and it  becomes warm in the sun. 

Early next week it should turn warm and dry in southern and eastern regions. In the north west it remains more changeable with a risk of showers or longer spells of rain.
