Tomorrow a fragmenting band of rain pushes southeastwards and brighter conditions follow it. Outbreaks of rain in Scotland clear but heavy showers quickly develop in the north. During the afternoon they merge to give longer spells of rain in the north west. Southern counties should be dry and bright. It will be very windy with gales in northern England.
