UK weather forecast: A brighter day across the southwest, but feeling colder with scattered, blustery and heavy showers

A much brighter start today but there will be a good scattering of heavy showers for most along with some blustery winds. The showers may bring hail and the odd rumble of thunder too.

There will be sunshine between the showers but temperatures won't be as high as yesterday, reaching 8 or 9 Celsius. The brisk west to northwest wind will make it feel colder too.

However, high pressure during the weekend will bring much drier and brighter weather.
