Wednesday starts damp in the north west of the UK. Elsewhere it is dry and in the south east it is quite chilly. 

Through the day drizzle or light spells of rain continue in Scotland and northern most counties in England. There may also be a few showers in central and southern regions. However, most places miss them and in other areas it stays dry. Cloud amounts vary, with the brightest skies probably in Wales and the south west. 

Temperatures range from 9C (48F) in the far north west of the UK to 17C (63F) in England. See the rain and lightning radar for the latest view.
