Tonight, it becomes mostly dry in southern and eastern areas. However, in the west and particularly the north west heavy showery spells of rain continue. 

The bank holiday tomorrow will see a mix of sunny spells and showers. Temperatures will generally be a little lower than today's and winds are likely to be quite blustery. Nonetheless, some places can expect to miss the showers and remain dry.
