Following a damp start, today turned out not too bad with some bright or sunny spells developing through the afternoon. Rain was slow to clear from the Borders. Tonight and it’s a quite night with plenty of cloudcover, perhaps thick enough to bring some patchy rain over parts of the West Highlands overnight. All in all it’s dry and mild once again at 8-13C.

Saturday is looking pleasant with stubborn morning cloud hopefully thinning and breaking across the West but it’s further east where there should be some good spells of sunshine. Highs 15-18C.

Saturday night will see a front dive southeast bringing light and patchy rain with an increasing SW wind. That rain should clear making way for another pleasant day Sunday. Highs 16-20C.

Monday looks fine, largely dry and warmer than normal for the time of year.

It’s been an improving day across England as rain and heavy showers progressed east. Through tonight and it’s turn dry and quiet but it will stay largely cloudy and remaining mild at 10-14C though not as warm as recent nights.

Saturday looks fine, dry and a brightening theme through the afternoon and with any sunshine, expect those temperatures to climb into the 16-19C range, perhaps 20 or 21C locally in the SE.

On Sunday it’s much of the same with plenty of dry weather with afternoon bright or sunny spells although a front entering the NW corner will present a patchy rain threat and winds for all will freshen out of the SW. By no means is the wind cold, in fact with some sunshine, temperatures will be a touch warmer. Expect highs widely at 15-18C but locally 21 or 22C in the SE.

It’s dry, bright and warm to start next week.


It’s a cloudy night across Wales with a chance of an odd shower here and there, particularly over the hills. Lows tonight will be a touch lower than recent nights but staying milder than average at 9-12C.

Saturday is looking rather pleasant and a good day to get out and about with largely dry conditions with cloud breaking up through the afternoon. Highs rise once again to between 16-19C.

Saturday night will see thicker cloud and some light and patchy rain and this sets the stage for a mainly cloudy day Sunday but the shower risk should be fairly low. Highs 16-19C.

Early next week starts off fine and dry as well as mild.

Northern Ireland

It’s a quiet end to Friday with the showers of today clearing, perhaps just a few lingering on into the overnight. It’s cooler than recent nights too with lows dipping nearer to 9 or 10C.

Saturday will start of cloudy but largely dry and through the afternoon expect skies to brighten and by late in the day, many should see plenty of warm sunshine with temperatures rising into the 16-18C range.

Fine, dry and sunny on Sunday for most with temperatures once again reaching the 16-18C range, perhaps 20C locally.

An increased chance of rain Monday but by no means a wash or anything like what we’ve seen of late.


It’s a quiet night to come across the Republic with just a slight risk of light and patchy rain beneath the cloud cover. Mild once again but not as mild as recent times, 9-14C.

Saturday and Sunday both look very pleasant albeit rather cloudy but there should be breaks in that cloud and where the sun shines, expect temperatures to respond well. Highs both tomorrow and Sunday range between 15-20, locally 21C in the sheltered South if sunshine appears.

Monday could see some patchy rain spread in from the Atlantic.
