Weather: Short lived showers and longer downpours

You'll be brave to be without a brolly today.

Showers and longer downpours will plague many places from the south of Scotland, through northern England and the Pennines and into East Anglia. Intense and slow moving in places - there'll be thunder and hail possible.

Elsewhere brighter skies but showers cropping up almost anywhere to catch us out.

Staying blustery in the south-west but otherwise a calmer day.

Feeling cool but the sunshine in the south will pep temperatures up.
