Most places will have a fine and dry day with plenty of sunny spells. However, cloud amounts will continue to build across southwestern parts of the UK through the day with some patchy light rain developing here.

The rain is likely to spread across the rest of Wales and into Northern Ireland through the evening.

Maximum temperatures reaching 22 Celsius across the London area.

Weather: Heavy rain in south, bright in north and east

Settled, dry and fine conditions are expected in the north and east of the country this afternoon, while the southern counties can expect heft, slow-moving downpours.

These will gradually ease to leave a better end to the day.

Most of us will see a big improvement by early evening with some late sunshine.

Highs of 20C at best and a little close feeling where it stays grey and damp this afternoon.

Weather: Near freezing tonight with frost expected

Another remarkably cold night for the time of year.

Temperatures will fall near freezing point tonight with even a touch of frost possible in rural spots.

Tomorrow, bright or sunny spells initially before cloud rolls into Northern Ireland and the south-west bringing the first signs of rain later.

Staying cool for mid August - we'll have to wait another week or so for things to warm up again.

Sunny spells and showers are expected across the UK today, with rain most frequent in the north and east - where there will also be more cloud.

Southwestern areas are set to remain largely dry.

It will feel chilly in the north, while temperatures of 21 Celsius (70F) are likely in the southeast.

Weather: Cold with brighter skies

Temperatures are still struggling.

It will be chilly for the time of year again tonight - and another cool feel for most of us again tomorrow. But at least there'll be brighter skies and sunny spells.

Any showers will tend to be few and far between.

Like most of the near continent temperatures will remain on the low side for mid August. We'll need to wait until the tail end of next week before things slowly start to warm up again.
