Outbreaks of rain push eastwards today and in places they turn heavy. The unsettled period is set to continue through the rest of the week, but temperatures rise and in sunny spells it will feel more spring like than recently. Things remain mixed this weekend and temperatures could dip again, particularly in the north.

Tuesday starts dry in eastern Britain. Elsewhere it's a mixed picture with rain and hill snow in Scotland.

Through the morning outbreaks of rain push eastwards and there will be some heavy ones mixed in. However, this afternoon showery conditions return from the west, although the rain probably remains more persistent in eastern England and north western Britain. Windy.  

Rather cold. Temperatures range from 5C (41F) in Scotland to 11C (52F) in south western England. See the rain radar for the latest view.

This evening the remnants of the rain clear. It then becomes mainly dry, although a few further showers are possible in the west. Later in the night wet weather perhaps returns to the far north west and south west. Mild. 

Tomorrow a band of rain spreads northeastwards. In the afternoon the wet conditions will be focused on the northern half of the UK, and perhaps East Anglia. Areas to the south and west become drier, and a few bright spells develop. Milder than recently.

Mixed towards the weekend

Thursday brings sunny spells and scattered showers. Through the late afternoon and evening longer spells of rain start to push up from the southwest. It also become windy in the south and west. Mild.

Friday sees the unsettled them continue. At the moment it looks as outbreaks of rain will affect most of the UK. Brighter conditions could return to Northern Ireland, Wales and southern England during the afternoon. Potentially very windy in southern and central counties. 

Saturday brings showers or longer spells of rain to much of England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Scotland may have a brighter day with scattered wintry showers.
