Well the heavens opened as soon as the Queen arrived in Worcester today, but it was also very pleasant when the sun came out between showers.

Any daytime showers should be easing by now so turning dry overnight, winds easing, odd mist patches forming here and there. Feeling cool in clearer periods.

By 6am, the next system arrives in the extreme SW of England but won't reach ITV Central until the afternoon, so Thursday starts mainly bright and dry through the Midlands.

The weather system pushes NE'wards through the afternoon so a wet end to the day, unpleasant, temperatures pegged back to between 16 and 19c, 66f. Breezy in any showers.

Obviously staying driest in the NE for longest.
