Saturday afternoon will be mainly dry and bright, odd scattered isolated showers, but they'll be few and far between. Chilly but bright, tops 14-15c.

Saturday night proves very cool with lows of 4-5c rurally.

Then the next few days will be particularly unsettled.

On Sunday, a deep low from the Atlantic drags in strong winds across the region. Rain will be into the region by 6am and will push quickly SE'wards; cloud and rain should be across the whole area by lunchtime.

There is a weather warning in force from 3pm Sunday to midnight Monday into Tuesday for strong winds. We predict gales through the Irish Sea, fresh to strong winds inland, gusts 50-60mph and 40-60mm of rainfall, the greater amounts at higher levels in Cumbria.

Temperatures peg back and it will be a showery Sunday evening and overnight period, cool NW'erly airstream.
