They said: "For the rest of the week the south, especially the southeast looks as though it more favoured to see more in the way of dry weather, although even some rain or showers are likely from time to time.

"Areas of low pressure are more likely to track to the northwest of the UK so here it will likely continue unsettled with showers and some longer spells of rain which could be heavy at times.

"The northwest may also see some periods of strong winds. Temperatures are likely to reflect this, remaining close to or perhaps a little on the cool side across the northwest, whereas the south is likely to be a little warmer than average."
