It’s been hanging just to the west or south much of today, but the heavy rain band is now making northeastward progress at this teatime hour and is likely making for a tricky drive home across Central and Southern areas. A wet night to come and the rain will continue tracking north tonight into Thursday. Winds will increase out of the southeast. Overnight lows much higher than last night at 7-10C.

After the heavy, persistent overnight rain, Thursday should be better, especially in the sunnier South and here, highs may reach an above average 15C. Cloudier and chillier the further north you are with highs of only 7 or 8C in the North Highlands with a cold northerly wind blowing. May even see some high elevation snow.

More persistent rain by Friday with an increase in wind once again.


It’s been an improving picture through this afternoon and evening right across England as the main rain band focuses on Scotland but heavy, thundery showers are still influencing Cumbria and Northumberland so do take care here, elsewhere, sunshine and showers and mild too in the wake of the front. Parts of the Southwest climbed to 16 or 17C. Not bad at all for mid-October.

Thursday is looking like a decent day with a mix of sun, cloud and in the South, showers. Staying very mild with highs of 15 to 19C.

More heavy, persistent rain to come Friday, particularly in the West and North, staying drier and brighter in the East and Southeast.


After a rather wet, blustery morning, today has been very much a decent afternoon with spells of sun, although interrupted at times by some blustery showers whipping in on a stiff southwest wind. Temperatures once again mild at 14-16C.

It’s a largely quiet night to come with a mix of clear spells and cloud, just an odd shower around. Not cold by any means tonight at 7-10C.

Thursday looks to be a day is sun and cloud with just a slight chance of a shower here and there. Staying mild at 14-17C.

More heavy rain to come late Thursday into Friday with a chance of local flooding.

Northern Ireland

It’s been a downright miserable day across much of Ulster with some local flooding here and there thanks to the persistent and heavy rain. This evening is looking much better with showers which followed the main rain band clearing mid to late evening and this should allow for a much quieter and more pleasant night with clear spells but not cold at 7 to 10C.

Thursday will see morning sun give way to a cloudier afternoon with possibly some showers but it will be a world of difference compared with today. Highs of 13-16C.

More heavy rain to come Friday.


It’s a much better end to the day across the Republic after a soaker of an overnight and morning. We saw good spells of fairly warm sunshine this afternoon across the South while always cloudier with a chance of rain the further north you went.

Clear with potentially some patchy mid and fog overnight tonight. Lows of 7-10C.

A decent looking Thursday is on tap although cloud will increase through the morning, perhaps giving way to afternoon showers, so make the most of the morning sunshine. Tomorrow night will see conditions once again go downhill fast as more heavy, persistent rain spreads north with the next front. That rain should clear through Friday morning, making way for a drier, brighter afternoon.
