It’s a mixed Friday afternoon and early evening as a weak front crosses the country bringing thickening cloud along with light and patchy rain. It’s also been warm and muggy day with temperatures generally hovering at between 20-23, locally 24C.

Into tonight and the front will spark some heavier showers which will present the East with a wet, even soaking night to come with localised flooding possible. Further west it’s largely dry and for many areas west of the front (positioned over the East Coast), it could turn misty. Overnight lows stay up once again at between 12-15C.

Saturday starts very wet along the East Coast but this rain will clear out into the North Sea through the morning. By afternoon it’s largely dry with a few showers mainly over Central and Eastern areas. Drier with the best of the sunshine in the West. Highs of 18-21C.

Sunday looks dry with a mix of sun and cloud. Highs 19-22C.

Monday looks much the same as Sunday as high pressure begins to build from the SW.

After a cloudy afternoon in the West, sunny in the East with temperatures rising into the mid and upper 20s across the Southeast, tonight presents a LOT of rain which could trigger flood, locally flash flooding.

The Pennines looks to mark the divide over the next 12 hours as the front pushes east and as it begins the feel the much warmer, more humid air, that’s when the rainfall really picks up.

So into tonight and it’s largely dry with mist and fog forming in the West behind the front but head further east and it’s all about the heavy, torrential rain with thunder and lightning. Overnight lows dip no lower than 12-16C.

Saturday will be a west-east split with plenty of dry even sunny weather in the West and Southwest but east of the Pennines and it’s heavy rain in the form of localised downpours covering a broad area. This system weakens and clears east late Saturday into Sunday.

Sunday will be a very different day with a mix of sun and cloud and MUCH drier for all. Highs range between 20-24C.

Monday looks fine and dry to start the new week with temperatures similar to Sunday at between 20-24C.


It’s a very different day across Wales compared to yesterday with showers and longer spells of rain spreading west to east and for a time, this rain could turn rather heavy through the first half of tonight. Overnight and it clears into England leaving a fine, dry and settled night with mist and fog forming. Another mild one with lows no lower than 12-15C.

Saturday looks much better with a mix of sun and cloud, feeling much cooler and less humid with a northwest wind. Highs of 17-19C compared to today’s muggy 20-23C.

Sunday and Monday will once again see a mix of sun and cloud, staying largely dry give or take an odd shower and it warms up again as high pressure builds back in from the SW, Highs of 21-24C.

Northern Ireland

After a rather dull and damp day through much of Ulster we should see sunshine return to the West and Central areas to end the day and this leads us to a largely dry night with a mix of cloud and clear spells. Lows dip no lower than 11 or 12C with mist and fog forming.

Saturday should be a dry day with sunny spells and just a slight chance of an odd shower. Feeling cooler compared to today and we could see some thicker cloud and light, patchy rain spread into Western areas later in the afternoon.

Sunday as well as Monday looks fine, dry and settled with plenty of sunshine. Temperatures should be on the rise by Monday as high pressure begins to build back in. Highs of 19-22C.


It’s a fine, dry and quiet end to the week across the Republic with temperatures comfortable at between 18-21C. Through tonight and it’s a mix of cloud and clear spells and there will be a chance of some mist and fog forming as the still air cools. Overnight lows cool off to between 10-14C.

Through Saturday and it’s a bright and dry start but through the afternoon a weak front could spread thicker cloud and rain into eastern areas and this will push east, impacting eastern areas later in the day. Highs will be in the range of 18-20C.

A better day comes Sunday as well as Monday with high pressure beginning to take charge once again and with sunnier weather comes warmer temperatures. Highs of 20-23C by Monday afternoon.
