After a rather mixed weekend with a cool feel thanks to the breeze, the new workweek kicks off in a similar vane with plenty of sunshine, a cool breeze but those showers will pep up through the morning and especially into the afternoon. The heaviest and most persistent looks to be in the East but your likely to catch a few further West also. As we head into the evening and overnight, expect those showers to die out, skies to clear and it will turn cool with perhaps a little mist and fog forming. Highs today are cool at 15-17C, overnight lows 5-11C.

Tuesday is looking slightly drier with fewer showers around. Highs once again cool at 15-18C with a light inland breeze, fresher along the coast.

A band of rain spreads in from the Atlantic come Wednesday.


It’s a showery day across the North today with some very heavy bursts expected but head down through the Midlands and it’s drier and sunnier. The Southwest right across to Kent and up into East Anglia should see a dry and sunny day and it’s here where temperatures should creep up to around 20, possibly 21C.

Tonight turn clear for many except the West and that means a cool night with the possible development of mist and fog, especially through the Midlands and East. Lows dip to between 5C in rural spots to nearer 10-13C in urban areas.

Tuesday starts damp and dull in the West, dry and sunny for most others but through the day, the area of rain spreading across parts of Wales into western counties of England will spread down through the Midlands and eventually into the Southeast later in the day. Sun and showers generally from Manchester north. London stays mainly dry and sunny till dinnertime. Highs 16-20C.

A more pronounced area of rain pushes in from the west Wednesday. Highs similar to today and tomorrow.


Today is looking fairly decent with good spells of sunshine this morning but as the sun warms the land, so the showers will kick off once again and these will be most frequent and heaviest across North Wales. Further south they will be fewer with much more sunshine on offer. Highs today will be cool at 16-20C.

Into tonight and those showers die out but a bank of cloud containing rain spreads into North Wales tonight but elsewhere it’s clear with lows in rural parts dipping down to 6C, nearer 10-12C in Swansea and Cardiff.

Tuesday will see a wet day across the North while it’s drier and brighter through Mid and South Wales. The rain should clear east during the afternoon. Highs of 16-19C.

Wednesday will see rain spread in from the Irish Sea once again. Highs similar to the next couple of days.

Northern Ireland

The cool, breezy, sunshine and showers regime continues into the new week and some of today’s showers are expected to be heavy with perhaps an odd rumble of thunder and small hail. Highs remain cool and slightly below average at 15-17C.

Lows tonight dip away to between 7-10C thanks to clear skies and lighter winds.

Tuesday will see a bright start in the East from Newry up to Ballycastle but further west and it clouds over with rain spreading into the far west. This light and patchy rain spreads east across the country through the day, arriving onto the East Coast during the mid to late afternoon. Highs remain cool at 15-17C.

More showers along with sunny spells and similar temperatures on Wednesday.


With the exceptions of the far north in a line from Donegal along the border and down towards the northern suburbs of Dublin, showers will be around and they could be heavy. Further south and it’s sunnier and much drier. Highs range from 16-20C.

Dry, clear and quite cool tonight, lows dip to 6C in the Midlands, nearer 10 or 11C in such cities as Cork and Dublin.

An area of light and patchy rain will spread across the country through Tuesday morning but this feature will be hardly noticed in the South and even across the North, it should turn drier and brighter into the afternoon in the West and Midlands. Highs similar to today at 16-19C.

Wednesday starts of wetter but it’s an improving day with sunshine followed by showers through the afternoon. Highs 16-20C.
