Weather time now. Let's see if it's parachute weather for tomorrow.
It's been a murky day. There's been low cloud,
which caused disappointment to some of the events taking place.
But we're in for a much better day tomorrow.
A much drier and brighter day. Plenty of sunshine around.
We have got some rain to get through first.
It will clear its way southwards and eastwards this evening.
Behind that, the cloud will start to break.
Starting to introduce cooler and fresher air tonight.
It will be chillier than recent nights.
Temperatures slide into single figures.
A matter better start tomorrow morning. There will be some fair
weather cloud building. We stay dry and sunny. It should not feel too
bad at all. The Beat's on air
on your local BBC Radio from 6:00am. Good evening. It was a mixed bag to
start the weekend. The satellite sequence shows cloud across northern
Scotland in the centre of an area of low pressure and associated weather
fronts drifting east across England and Wales with sunshine following
behind with showers. The showers should be gone by the small hours of
the morning. Clear skies follow behind, so temperatures will dip
into single figures and maybe a few patches of fog to go with that. In
the North of Scotland it is pretty wet in the overnight period and into
the morning. The North of Scotland will be a focal point for some of
the wettest weather on Sunday, 20-40 millimetres of rain quite widely in
some places may see more than that and it will be accompanied by some
brisk wind. A different story through the central lowlands,
sunshine here. Northern Ireland might start on the cloudy side but
not for Wales and the Midlands where it should be a nice start.
Temperatures should stay up due to the cloud and a spot of rain to go
with that. Northern England might be cool first thing for the Great North
