Much of the UK has dry weather for a time today, but this afternoon outbreaks of rain push in from the west. The mixed theme continues through the next few days. However, changes will be taking place as areas of low pressure track further north and milder air is pulled up from the southwest.

Mixed weather continues this weekend. During Saturday heavy spells of rain spread southeastwards. Showery conditions follow into the north west. Chilly in central and eastern Britain, but milder than recently elsewhere.
Through Sunday patchy outbreaks of rain push northwards across England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Scotland has wintry showers early in the day but they should clear to leave a mostly dry afternoon. Very mild in southern and central regions.
Early next week things remain mixed. The wettest conditions probably become focused on the north west as high pressure starts to exert more influence and winds increasingly come from a southwesterly direction. Generally mild.
