Rain Slowly Easing, For Now...
It's been another wet night across much of Southern England, the Midlands and south Wales which means that there are still many flood warnings and alerts live. Check the Environment agency website
for the latest on this.
The rain will continue to drift north through the Midlands, Wales and East Anglia - reaching the southern part of northern England too before eventually fading away during the second part of the day. To the north of the rain it's a mainly dry picture with some good sunny spells on offer, where the sun does get to work it'll be pleasantly warm too with parts of western Scotland seeing highs up toward 18c. The same can also be said in southern England, the cloud will slowly lift through the day to allow a few warm, sunny spells.
Into tomorrow, barring a few showers in central and southern England it's set to be a dry day with the sun again making an appearance - particularly in the west. Temperatures will again respond with the mid-high teens likely. After the brief respite we do need to keep an eye to our south though with more rain likely to push in later in the day.
That rain continues to affect central and southern parts into Thursday, while at the same a front pushes down from the north bringing a spell of rain and cooler air behind it. That all heads south as we close out the week, to leave much of the UK in a cooler, showery airflow during the Bank Holiday weekend.
All in all, it's a continued mixed picture with more rain or showers at times throughout much of the next 7-10 days.
