Scattered showers on Thursday, perhaps heavy for central England.

Many places starting cloudy, with a little rain in places, though northern Scotland brighter. While some places brighten up, scattered heavy showers are likely for parts of Wales, then some central areas of England, perhaps thundery. Temperatures slightly below average.

Tonight:

Evening showers in central and eastern England fading, with many areas dry but rather cloudy. Still a few areas of mainly light rain, mainly in the west and north.

Friday:

Many areas dry, central and southern parts probably seeing some warm sunny intervals. However rain, some heavy, soon into Northern Ireland, will slowly spread to some other northwestern areas later.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

Outbreaks of rain, heavy in places, spreading east on Saturday. Some heavy, thundery showers for Northern Ireland later. Rain and showers clearing east Sunday, then mostly fine and dry.
