Sunshine and showers in the north, heavy rain in the south

Today will be a day of sunshine and showers in the north, with rain primarily across the northern half of Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Northern England will remain largely fine but it will be cloudier further south with showery outbreaks of rain.

Southeastern England may well be drier, brighter and much warmer for a time, before pulses of heavy rain arrive later.

Top temperatures 25C (77F).
