It’s been a fairly cloudy day across much of Scotland with the best of any bright or sunny spells largely confined to the East, damp and dreary the further west you go. Tonight will turn cloudy even in the East but it’s not particularly damp and indeed cool with lows holding up at between 10-14C.

Through the second half of the overnight, SW winds will pick up and eventually rain will spread into the Western Isles and by Friday morning, the Western mainland. Always that bit drier and brighter the further East you are. Winds will be fresh to strong, particularly in the West with gales along exposed coasts. Highs of 15-18, perhaps 19 or 20C along the Moray coast.


It’s an east-west split to end the day across England with the thickest cloud along with some light and patchy rain in the West but drier, brighter and warmer the further East you go. Cloud thickens everywhere overnight but it should stay mostly dry. Where skies have thinner cloud, don’t be surprised to see patchy mist and fog. Overnight lows stay mild at 13-16C.

Friday will be similar to today with the cloud and damp confined to the West while it’s dry, brighter and warmer to the east of the Pennines and Southeast, highs 18-25C, stiff SW breeze, especially in the West.

Cooler, fresher on Saturday once the front clears, highs range from 15-20C.


It’s a mixed bag to end the day across Wales with mostly cloudy skies along with light and patchy rain but a few breaks here and there also. Cloud thickens through the overnight with light and patchy rain but it stays mild, even warm with lows only dipping to between 13-16C.

Friday looks similar to today with plenty of cloud, some patchy rain and it will be breezier. Best of the brightness in the East. Highs 18-22C.

Front clears through Friday into Saturday, mostly dry and cooler through the afternoon.

Northern Ireland

It’s a mostly cloudy evening across the country and through the overnight, winds will pick up from the southwest and we will see light and patchy rain, staying mild with lows of 12-14C.

Friday shall be windy with morning cloud and dampness clearing, making way for an improving afternoon with sunshine returning. Highs down on today at between 15-18C.

Cool but mostly dry Saturday.


It’s a cloudy night to come across Ireland with some light and patchy drizzle, particularly over hills but it stays very mild with lows dipping no lower than 13-16C.

Friday will be a decent day with the best of the bright or sunny spells in the West and Midlands, always that bit cloudier in the East. Winds will be fresh to strong for a time as a front pushes through and feeling cooler on the backside of the front which will produce little rain. Highs 16-21C.

Saturday looks cool but largely dry.
