Unsettled but some warmth to be found

The unsettled weather is forecast to continue on Thursday. Showers or longer spells of rain may occur in much of the UK. Nonetheless, it could feel quite warm in southern counties if sunny periods develop.

During Friday showers or longer spells of rain affect much of the UK. The rain could be heavy, especially in the west and it remains cold enough for snow over the Scottish mountains. It is likely to be windy.
