Sunshine and showers continue

[Updated 07:15 19/08/2019]


There will be dry and sunny periods today but also heavy showers in places. Temperatures remain on the low side for mid August. During the coming days a transition to a warmer and more settled period is likely. Uncertainty increases as we approach the summer bank holiday weekend.

Monday starts with scattered showers and in western Scotland they are heavy. Through the day showers become more widespread but there will be bright spells too. It will be quite blustery.

Temperatures range from 13C (55F) in the north west to 22C (70F) in the south east. See the rain radar for the latest view.

Uncertain bank holiday weekend

By Wednesday high pressure starts to build from the southwest. In the north and west an area of rain is expected to move eastwards. Southern and possibly central areas remain dry. The brightest and warmest conditions are likely to be in the south east.

During the rest of the week there is uncertainty. The latest guidance suggests that more settled conditions will spread northwards. It may become very warm for a time with temperatures reaching 27C (81F) by Friday. Settled conditions possibly last through the Bank Holiday weekend, however there is a chance of low pressure areas bringing showery rain.
