It’s a largely cloudy end to the day with light and patchy rain mainly confined to the Highlands, drier and brighter further south. Temperatures are well down on yesterday, especially in the West but it’s been warmer and sunnier in the East.

Through tonight and mainy areas should start off dry but cloud shall increase from the west as the weak weak front pushes in off the Atlantic which will set the ton for Saturday. Lows tonight dip generally to between 5-8C, cooler in rural parts where clear skies prevail.

Saturday starts off mainly cloudy with the bulk of showers in the North and West but through the afternoon and as skies brighten, this increases instability, sparking sharp showers for many areas, albeit they will be isolated. Highs tomorrow range from 13-16C.

Sunday is looking mainly dry but cloudiest in the West, more in the way of sunshine from Aberdeen down to Edinburgh. Highs of 12-15C.

The mainly dry theme should continue into next week with Monday perhaps seeing brighter weather with a warming trend returning once the front clears and pressures begin to rise again.

England

It’s been a lovely day across most of the country with warm sunshine on offer with the exception being Lancashire up into Cumbria where it’s stayed cloudy. Temperatures will remain warm in the sunniest towns and cities well into the mid evening, perfect for a bbq or if your heading out.

Tonight is looking fine, dry and settled with clear skies developing, perhaps allowing a little mist and fog formation in valleys. Lows dip no lower than 7-13C tonight.

Saturday is another decent day but slightly cloudier, although there will be sunny spells to enjoy too. Some showers are possible up across Cumbria, Lancashire and down towards Manchester through the morning and into the afternoon. Sunnier further south. Highs will be down on today due to the presence of a weak front further north. Highs range from a cool 10-13C on the coast to perhaps 18 or 19C inland where the sun shines longest.

As for Sunday, it’s cloudiest in the west with more in the way of brightness and sunshine east of the Pennines. Highs similar to tomorrow at 11-18C.

Monday continues the largely dry, settled theme and we should see temperatures rise as high pressures begins to build on the backside of the front which crosses Scotland tomorrow.

Wales

After a fine, dry, sunny and warm day across the country today, the weekend is looking like the best of the year so far. Highs warmed to at least 21C this afternoon in Monmouthshire.

Tonight is mainly clear, calm with perhaps some mist and fog developing as the air cools. Not a cold night with lows dipping no lower than 6C in the countryside, nearer 8-10C in the towns and cities.

Saturday will be a near repeat of today with lots of blue, sunny skies though not quite as warm as today with highs reaching 10C along the coast where there’s an onshore breeze, to 17C inland.

It’s another sunny, dry day Sunday with similar temperatures.

Monday again is looking mainly dry, sunny with patchy cloud developing and we should see warming temperatures as high pressures builds.

Northern Ireland

After a mainly cloudy day with some light rain here and there, we should see brightening skies in the west push east making way for a pleasant evening to come.

Through the overnight and another bank of cloud with outbreaks of rain will push into western areas, setting the stage for a cloudy start to Saturday for much of the country. Lows overnight should stay mild at 7-9C.

Saturday is a day of showers with brightness in between. Highs range from 12-15C.

Sunday will be a similar day although it may be less showery. Highs similar to Saturday.

Monday should be an improving day as high pressure builds once again and that should raise temperatures back towards 18-20C.

Ireland

The cloud today has always been thickest in the North and West with sunnier, warmer conditions further East and South. Through tonight and it should be mainly clear with mist and fog forming through the Midlands. Lows dip no lower than 6-9C.

Saturday will be a day of sunshine and showers. Highs will be down on today at 12-17C.

Sunday will be similar to tomorrow with a sun, cloud mix, although it should be a little less showery.

Monday will see a dry start to the week with warming temperatures and hopefully a rise in temperature also.
