Mixed outlook

During Tuesday outbreaks of rain move eastwards across the northern half of the UK. Drier conditions follow for a time, but late in the day another batch of rain could reach Northern Ireland. Southern and central regions should be mainly dry, although there could be some patchy rain in Wales and south western England. Quite mild, particularly in the south.

Forecast details for Wednesday are uncertain. At this stage it looks as though a band of rain will push southeastwards reaching Wales and central England in the afternoon. To its southeast it will be very mild and dry. It probably also turns dry in much of the north. 

Through the rest of the week the weather remains changeable. Further spells of rain are likely, particularly in the north and west. The south and east probably have a reasonable amount of dry periods.
