Wet end to the week, brighter start to the weekend

The long spell of gloomy grey and misty weather is finally coming to a close and it's a spell of wet weather that we have to thank for it.Overnight a rain band has lurked to the north west of the UK joins some wet weather to the south weather and finally begins it's push across us meaning we'll all see some wet weather through the night. The heaviest of the rain will on all the western high ground and the Brecon Beacons. Temperatures won't be that much cooler than today's highs.

The rain clears through tomorrow morning with brighter weather arriving in the west. Into the afternoon there should be some good sunny spells around although it won't be wall to wall sunshine and there could be the odd isolated shower. It will be cooler and fresher on Saturday with highs in single figures.A ridge of high pressure squeezes out any remaining showers on Sunday and there will be widespread sunny spells around. But Sunday is a one-day offering only as we quickly see the return of wet and windy weather on Monday
