Those areas include Manchester, Bristol, Liverpool, Belfast and Sheffield according to BBC Weather, reports The Mirror. The Met Office meanwhile forecast an "unsettled" period of weather is on the horizon with a frontal system from this weekend into next week.

Beyond this low pressure patterns becoming more dominant than of late with wet weather perhaps more likely to develop in parts of the south and east, with western and especially northern areas hanging on to the best of any drier interludes, though all parts are may see some rain at times.
