Rain and Wind Easing

It's been a wet weekend across many parts of Northern England, North Wales and the southern half of Scotland, and the new working week has started in a similar vein with another batch of heavy rain having moved in overnight. The good news though is that it will clear during the day, the bad news is that before it does so it will drop another 25-40mm over the hills especially. It's windy too with gusts of up to 65mph through the central belt of the UK, although they too will ease during the afternoon. Elsewhere today it's generally dry with just a scattering of showers here and there, it'll again be mild in the south with highs of 11-13°c typically, although in the blustery winds it will feel cooler than that. Further north it becomes cooler, with much of Scotland struggling to get above 5°c. Overnight, with skies clearing and winds becoming lighter a touch of frost is likely to form in rural parts especially from the midlands northward. Then into tomorrow the day starts dry and bright for much of the country and away from the southwest should stay that way until after dark. Southwestern parts will see cloud thickening through the morning though with more rain arriving by lunchtime, and this will spread slowly northeast later in the day and overnight, getting up into Northern England and the southern half of Scotland by morning on Wednesday. Once that rain clears through it'll be quickly followed by another band arriving from the west which will probably take some time to clear the south of the country on Thursday. The unsettled weather then looks set to continue through to the end of the week and into the weekend..
