Unseasonably breezy with a few showers

It stays unseasonably breezy for the time of year as we head through the rest of the week. A few showers around initially but drying up come the end of the week and through to the start of the weekend at least. It is a deep area of low pressure anchored to the north east which is keeping it unseasonably blowy for the time of year.


Dry and bright for many with temperatures topping 26C

Today will be dry and bright for many parts, with the best of the sunshine in the south-west and western parts of Wales.

Scattered showers will develop through Northern Ireland and Scotland through the morning, turning heavy at times this afternoon.

Away from here there is a chance of a few isolated showers in the far south-east later as well.

It will feel a touch fresher with less humid conditions for many with a top temperature 26C.


Mostly fine and dry with sunny spells and highs of 24C

Gusty winds and outbreaks of rain at first across northwestern Scotland will ease and clear away to the north throughout the day.

Most areas will have a day of sunshine and showers today. Some of the showers will be heavy and thundery, especially in the north and west.

The southeast of England should escape with the driest and brightest of the weather, although even here more in the way of cloud is likely to develop this afternoon.

Top temperatures of 25C.
