Calmer Today

It was a dramatic day yesterday as low pressure swept across the north of Scotland and bought some significant winds to parts of Ireland, England and Wales in particular. In Britain, the highest wind gust recorded was at Great Dun Fell in Cumbria where 100mph was reached. Today though is another story, winds have eased in the early hours and will continue to do so through the day, it'll stay blustery though - particularly in the east so it's worth being aware that any branches or roof tiles etc that have been loosened overnight could still be bought down. There'll be some rain around too, chiefly affecting southern and western Scotland along with southern England. In between it's drier but still with a scattering of showers. The weekend will also see some showery rain at times, but with many parts staying dry and bright it should be pleasant enough for most. It will be turning a touch colder from the north though, so showers in Scotland will turn wintry over higher ground in particular and there'll be some frosts, initially reserved for the north but becoming more widespread later in the weekend. Looking further ahead, next week starts on a very similar vein to the weekend but further wet and windy weather will arrive from the west on Tuesday..
