Showery spells of rain continue in the northern half of the UK, but there should be some bright spells in the north west. In Wales, central and south western England sunny periods develop and it will feel quite warm.

Mixed outlook

Thursday is expected to be mainly dry. Southern counties probably have the brightest and warmest conditions. Later in the day there is a risk of rain feeding into Northern Ireland.

During Friday a band of rain pushes steadily eastwards and it becomes quite windy. Eastern counties possibly remain dry until the late afternoon and in sunny spells it feels quite warm. 

Forecast confidence for the weekend is low. At this stage it looks as though Saturday could bring some showery rain, but there should be quite a lot of dry and bright weather. Sunday could be quite warm in much of the UK, although there is a risk of rain in the north and west.
