Weather: Heavy showers with chance of thunder

The week kicks off with showers across the UK, particularly in the North.



Another day of sunny spells and showers, some heavy and thundery. The heaviest showers are expected across parts of Scotland, Northern Ireland and southern England. Breezy again in many areas too.


Daytime showers will gradually fade during the evening and overnight leaving clear spells. A few mist and fog patches are then possible towards dawn.


A much better day than of late with many areas dry with sunny spells. Still a few showers about for some though, mainly over parts of Scotland.

Outlook for Wednesday to Friday:

Fine start Wednesday, before rain, heaviest in the north, makes slow progress east, clearing late Thursday. Showers and strong winds follow for the north, whilst fine, and locally warm elsewhere.
