After a decent afternoon with good spells of bright or sunny weather, especially the further east you were, it’s very much a downhill trend into this evening as a weather system approaches from the west. This low will push an organised band of rain across the country overnight and all Western and Central areas should be damp by mid evening. Through the night it turns wet and breezy everywhere and with all the rain and cloud as well as a southerly air flow, it will stay mild with readings holding up at 13-15C.

Wednesday will see the main rain band clear east but following in the wake of the front will be clumps of rain, especially across Western and Central areas and some of these could bring heavy and quite persistent rain. The best of the sunshine will be from Aberdeenshire down to the Borders but really anywhere could see some sun. Heavy, thundery showers may affect Eastern areas with the help of daytime heating. Temps will be warm tomorrow at 19-22C.

Thursday will be a much better day with fewer showers and more in the way of sunshine, highs of 19-23C.


It’s a dry and largely bright end to your Tuesday across England but into this evening, while most enjoys a mostly clear and quiet night, it will turn cloudier across Cumbria, Northumberland perhaps extending into Lancashire overnight. Lows dip to between 7C in the countryside to nearer 13-15C in the towns and cities.

Wednesday for most of the country stays fine, dry and fairly bright or sunny but the far north (Cumbria, Northumberland perhaps extending into Lancashire), it’s a wet, dreary day. High tomorrow range from 17C in the rain to nearer 24 or 25, possibly 26C in the sunnier Southeast.

A mix of sun and cloud, just an odd shower around during Thursday, similar temperatures.


It’s a pleasant end to the day across the bulk of Wales but if your in the West you’ll notice cloud thickening up, perhaps producing some light and patchy rain. This sets the scene for the next 24 hours as a weather system to the north makes it’s presence felt. Lows beneath the cloud and light, patchy rain (for some) will hold at 13-15C.

Wednesday looks to be a day of sun and showers with a slight increase in the breeze but feeling warm with highs into the 21-23C range.

Much the same Thursday with similar temps.

Northern Ireland

It’s a soaking night if your out and about already and it looks like the rains will persist through much of the overnight before easing by dawn Wednesday. Temps hold up at between 13-15C overnight thanks to all the cloud and rain.

Wednesday will start wet for most but the rain band should fragment through the morning, turning much patchier through the afternoon and we could well see sunshine peek through. Highs 18-21C.

Sunshine and showers for Thursday with similar temps.


While heavy rain impacts Northern Ireland tonight, further south and it’s a largely dry, mild and pleasant night to come with that rain only just skirting the far north of the country. Lows dip to between 9C in rural areas to nearer 12-14C in towns and cities.

Wednesday is looking like a decent day with a mix of sun and cloud and perhaps some light showers across Northern areas, drier and brighter the further South you go. Highs tomorrow range from 18-22C so not bad at all.

Thursday looks like a carbon copy of tomorrow with a mix of sun and cloud, few showers around and it will be pleasantly warm at 19-23, locally 24C.
