Issued 1100 Thursday 17th May 2012


High pressure will be to the north of Scotland on Saturday with low pressure centred to the southwest of England.

A cloudy and damp morning over Ireland and northern England as well as southern Scotland. Most of the rain is going to be light and rather patchy, although windward facing slopes may see some moderate rain at times. Rather misty through these damper areas too.

Drier for southern England with broken cloud and some bright spells, although there will be a few showers affecting southwest England. These showers will spread northeast into Wales and the Midlands, some becoming heavy at times although remaining scattered.

The risk of some more persistent rain affecting the far southeast of England, although confidence in this is low at the present time as it may be that the rain stays offshore, or even spreads further inland.

The far north of Scotland should be dry with sunny spells throughout the day.

Winds mainly SE 8-12kt (F3) in the south but NE 15-20kt (F5) across northern England, Scotland and Ireland, 20-25kt (F6) at times on the coasts of northeast England.



A moist northeast flow affecting much of the country through Sunday as a warm front aligns itself southwest to northeast. High pressure remains to the north of Scotland.

It is going to be a cloudy day across most of central and eastern England. The cloud tending to become thicker through the day, increasing the risk of drizzle and visibility deteriorating.

Drier through more western areas of England and Wales, with broken cloud here. Drier across Scotland with a brisk northeast wind but the best of the sunshine here. Some cloud and a few spots of showery rain over Ireland.

Visibility will be good but then increasingly moderate in drizzle in central and eastern areas.
