Live updates

Tonight's rain clearing by the morning

A cloudy end to the day but not as chilly as recent evenings.

Rain in the north and west will sweep eastwards but drying up come dawn leaving a generally dry and bright start tomorrow morning.

Showers will get going tomorrow afternoon but many areas will stay dry with spells of sunshine. Highs of 19C in the south-east possible but a cooler, fresher day in the west - more so in the notable breeze.

Temperatures in the east, south, and south east rose to highs of 21 Celsius, but temperatures in Northern Ireland and Scotland failed to reach double figures, and there have been outbreaks of rain in western Scotland.


Bank Holiday weather of two halves

A split forecast today with cloudy skies in the west and rain in Northern Ireland seeping into western Britain. Much of the rain will only be light and patchy by the time it reaches the north-east.

Elsewhere dry with the cloud limiting the sunshine over time.

Cool feeling in the breeze and cloud further west. Mild in the east - warm where the sunshine stays with highs 20C.
