Through the weekend the UK is looking at a relatively mild picture compared to recent days, with temperatures in the double figures.
The wet weather looks like being largely confined to the South and West, where we'll see a mixture of sunshine and showers.
Unfortunately there is no significant dry weather down in the South West, but the precipitation will become more showery rather than the persistent rain they had through the night.
