Hello. So far, so good. Most of us have had a dry start of the weekend.

:05:15.:05:21.

Some of us will be turning wetter tomorrow. For that change we look to

:05:22.:05:25.

the far north-west of the UK. Overnight into western Scotland,

:05:26.:05:28.

thicker cloud. Patchy hybrids of rain moving in. Some of that

:05:29.:05:32.

reaching Northern Ireland late in the night. Elsewhere, dry. Where you

:05:33.:05:37.

are clear, you will see some patchy mist and fog developing.

:05:38.:05:39.

Temperatures just over a single figures. There will be a different

:05:40.:05:42.

look to the weather across the western side of the UK. Western

:05:43.:05:46.

coast 's of England and Wales, so much sunshine today. More cloud

:05:47.:05:51.

around, maybe a hint of drizzle. In the evening we will start to see our

:05:52.:05:55.

bricks of rain. Central and eastern England will see a fair amount of

:05:56.:05:58.

morning sunshine. Southern and eastern Scotland, a dry start. For

:05:59.:06:01.

Northern Ireland and western Scotland, not just goal, but rampant

:06:02.:06:05.

places to begin the day. Easier when you
