Weather: A better afternoon for most of the UK

After a horrible start to the day for most of us - it will be a drier and brighter afternoon and generally mild for late October. Wet weather will still affect some of us though.

Morning rain will stall across Scotland where it will be feeling cool. Showers will get going in western England and Wales - these generally hit and miss, but some will become heavy and thundery.

At a glance the weekend will be blustery with rain at times - before the potential for stormy conditions into Monday.
