The warming trend has begun with highs reaching 18 to 21C this afternoon across the West this afternoon, while it’s been cooler, cloudier and damper in the East. In saying that, rain showers have been peppering the Glasgow area late this PM but this shouldn’t amount to much.

Tonight will be largely dry with clear spells. While mild in central and southern areas at 7-10C, we could see a chilly night within Northwest Highlands Glens where frost is possible, lows near 1C.

Thursday shall be dry and brighter across a broader swath of the country and with high pressure in charge, temperatures will range from 16C along the coast to a warm 21C in sheltered central parts.

England

It’s a wet and miserible end to the day across a good chunk of central and east-central England and this shall be the case through a good part of the overnight into Thursday morning. Drier to the North and both Southwest and Southeast, though turning wetter this evening across London. Lows hold up well tonight even where the rain is, 8-13C.

Thursday dawns dull and damp for a large part of the country with the exceptions of the North and West but conditions improve through the day with sunshine returning. Much of the Midlands down into the South will have a day of sunshine and showers. Highs range from a dissapointing 15C in London to a warmer 18-20C in the West and North.

Wales

It’s been a fine, dry and bright afternoon across western parts of Wales but duller and damper in the North and East. Highs managed 19C today in Porthmadog.

Tonight is looking mainly dry with an odd shower. Perhaps turning misty and murky and staying mild at 9-11C.

Thursday is looking better than today with good spells of sunshine, just an odd shower here and there and highs should push 20C in sheltered inland spots. Widely 15-18C.

Northern Ireland

Today will likely go down as one of the best of 2013 with wall to wall sunshine and warmth to go with it. Temperatures have reached at least 20C at Stormont today. Through tonight and it’s mild and clear with lows dipping no lower than 10C in the towns and cities, perhaps holding at 12C in central Belfast. Cooler at 6 or 7C in the countryside.

Tomorrow will be equally as pleasant with more plentiful sunshine and warm temperatures, highs should once again get widely into the 16-19C range, locally 21C.

Ireland

A warm ridge of high pressure has presented Ireland with some of the best weather of the year so far with highs widely 16-19C today and through tonight it stays mainly clear and mild at 7-11C.

Thursday is looking just as good with plenty of sunshine on offer. Highs again will warm towards the 16-20C mark.
