Tonight a band of wet and windy weather pushes southeastwards across the north. There could be some heavy bursts of rain mixed in. A few showers are also possible in Wales and the south west, but elsewhere it stays dry.

Changeable outlook

Saturday is expected to be dry with sunny spells in southern and central areas. In the north scattered showers are likely. Temperatures generally close to the seasonal norm.

Through Sunday wet and windy conditions push down from the northwest. There is uncertainty about their rate of progress, but through the afternoon they probably affect Wales and much of northern England. The brightest conditions will be in south eastern counties.

An area of high pressure possibly brings drier conditions for a time early next week. However, the general theme is for it to be changeable. Therefore, all areas could have wet and windy spells, but the biggest rain totals are forecast to be in the north west.
