Showery weather this weekend

[Updated 07:20 02/07/2022]

Looking for the pot of gold. Posted by brian gaze

Changeable weather continues this weekend. Showers develop quite widely, and today a patchy band of rain slowly pushes eastwards across much of southern and central Britain. Next week high pressure is expected to begin building northeastwards from the Azores and it leads to the likelihood of a more settled period.

Saturday starts with a band of rain stretching up from Cornwall, through south Wales and into central England. Areas to the south east are dry, but to the north there are showers in places. 

Through the day the rain slowly moves eastwards, but the south eastern corner could stay dry. To its north and west there will be a mix of sunny spells and showers. Some of them could be heavy and thundery, particularly in the north. 

Temperatures range from 13C (55F) in the north west to 22C (72F) in East Anglia. See the rain radar for the latest view.
