UK weather forecast: A wet few days to come for the West Country with a Met Office rain warning in force

After today's wet weather we should see a bit of respite on Saturday, leaving a mostly dry start on Sunday. However, further wet weather will move in during the day, maintaining the current unsettled theme to the weather. It should be milder though, especially at night.

Today's wet weather is thanks to an area of low pressure that's been working it's way in from the English Channel. There is a gap between the next one arriving on Sunday and that's where our slightly quieter spell of weather will come from.

For the rest of today we'll see persistent rain continuing well into the night with only a few dry spells around Cornwall and Wiltshire. Temperatures won't drop very far, only down to 7 or 8 degrees.

Rain on Saturday morning will turn more showery, leaving some drier skies in the afternoon but plenty of cloud and some hill fog. The odd glimmer of sunshine may break through at times and winds will be lighter. It should feel a bit milder as a result with temperatures reaching 12 Celsius.
