Hello. Still no sign of the weather really settling down next week.
There should be an improvement for most of us tomorrow. It will not be
as windy as it has been today, and the band of rain will slowly peter
out. We still have some rain to come through the night. This band of rain
is quite slow moving, it will wander northwards into Dumfries and
Galloway. Close to Northern Ireland, heavy rain in Cumbria and later in
the night it will turn whether in Wales and the south-west. Southerly
wind, quite strong at the moment, that will ease as the night goes on
but it should be pretty mild, six or seven degrees, typically. Tomorrow,
we start with heavy rain, especially over the hills, as it slips slowly
eastwards so the rain tends to become light and patchy. Buying it,
we get some sunshine and maybe a few showers. A good day in Scotland
especially northern Scotland. In Northern Ireland
