Here comes the rain. Again!. Posted by Brian Gaze

Heavy outbreaks of rain continue in parts of northern Britain today, but elsewhere it will be more mixed. The next few days bring further wet spells and there are signs of it turning very windy this weekend. Fingers crossed if you're hoping for something drier and more settled because some computer model runs are indicating that high pressure may be more influential next week. (If you would like to browse the website without adverts and contribute to its ongoing development, explore the payment options, see below)

Unsettled and windy at times

Friday brings further showers or longer spells of rain to 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.

During Saturday outbreaks of rain clear northwards with showery conditions following. Sunny spells could develop in places, particularly in central and eastern counties. However, it is likely to be very windy, with a risk of gales in the north and west.

Further patchy spells of rain continue in the north and west on Sunday. Southern and eastern areas should be mostly dry and in sunny spells it feels quite warm. However, it will be windy and there is a risk of gales or even severe gales in the north.
