More Downpours Today, Drier On Sunday
With an area of low pressure moving northeast over central areas of the UK today, Saturday will see further heavy downpours across many areas accompanied by blustery winds, but Sunday should turn drier, brighter and less windy for many areas.
For now, we have an area of wet and windy weather across southern Scotland, Northern Ireland, northern England and Wales this morning. But for much of southern England and East Anglia it’s a dry and bright start. It will stay rather wet at times across the north and west for the rest of the day, with further downpours accompanied by hail and thunder in places, showers also spreading further east across the Midlands through the day too. SE England and East Anglia should escape with a largely dry and bright day, with just the odd shower. Still on the cool side for the time of year- not helped by the blustery wind, with 11C likely in Glasgow, 15C in Manchester, 16C in Cardiff and 18C in London.
Showers will persist into the evening, but will tend to ease overnight away from Scotland and northern England, with clear spells developing across the south and west by dawn and winds easing generally. For Sunday, many places look like remaining dry and sunny through much of the day, though some well-scattered showers will develop in places. But with lighter winds it should feel warmer – with temperatures reaching 15-17C in the north and west, 18-20C across the SE and East Anglia.
Then into early next week, some rain at first across the southeast of England on Monday – otherwise a mainly bright day, though scattered showers developing by the afternoon. Tuesday to Friday - each day looks like seeing sunny spells and scattered heavy showers, most of which will be in the north and west.
