Wet End To May
It's a wet start to the day for a good deal of the UK today as rain has spread in from the west overnight. Although the rain will fragment as the day goes on, it's really only the far north of Scotland and the south of England which are in with a shot of staying dry - although even here a few showers are likely.
With the extra cloud around, temperatures today are certainly quite depressed with 13-16c typical in the wetter zone. Further south with brighter skies it's a little warmer with 17-19c typical - maybe even a few places making it into the twenties.
The rain will slowly ease through the latter part of the day across that central belt of the UK (it's a wide belt on this occasion!), but eastern regions in particular will keep some outbreaks of rain going into the night.
By morning, it's a fairly drab picture for many with low cloud and some drizzly rain and maybe even some sharper showers getting into Wales and the southwest of England by this point too. Not too much will change through the day either with just a few breaks in the cloud appearing - these chiefly across northeast England and the north of Scotland. As you'd expect with all that cloud about, temperatures will be disappointing making it into the mid teens in the main.
The start of the Jubilee weekend will see some more sunshine though, and just handful of showers for the bulk of the country. Rain will be arriving into southwester regions later on in the day though, and although there's still some uncertainty as to how far north it will reach - the south of the country does (at this stage) look likely to have a wet and chilly Sunday.
Monday and Tuesday are also unlikely to be 100% dry with sunshine and showers the most likely weather type. More details for the holiday weekend can be found in our Jubilee Forecast
