Rain soon clears across southern Britain, followed by sunny spells and showers. Highs 5 to 10C.

Thursday night Thursday's storm system clears quickly away eastwards. Areas of showers will continue to affect northern Britain overnight, giving snow to low levels in the Scottish Highlands. Elsewhere, skies should clear and winds easing. Sheltered spots may see a touch of frost and local icy patches. Temperatures near or just below 0C in Scotland & northern England, around 2 to 5C for central & southern areas.

Friday A ridge of high pressure brings a brighter day. A few showers possible, mainly coastal areas in the morning. Sunny spells, but cloud thickens from the west as fronts return from the Atlantic. Rain sets in across Northern Ireland by afternoon, later spreading to western Scotland. Turning drizzly in western areas elsewhere. The breeze eases for a time, but south-westerlies freshen later. Highs 6 to 10C, mildest south-west.

Saturday A brisk south-westerly wind affects the country, locally gale force in the west & north. Rain will persist most of the day for north-western Britain, heaviest over western hills. Rain also frequent across Ireland. Occasional rain spreads eastwards across central England, but the south & east should stay mainly dry. Cloudy skies for most, some brightness in the east. Mild overall, 9 to 12C.

Morning Call: Grey and damp south - Brighter north, Feb 22 - 04:44

Wet and windy tonight; stormy Thursday Good morning, A deep area of low pressure is centred over western Norway today, whilst a slow-moving front extends from west to east across central Britain, bringing cloudy skies and outbreaks of rain. In the far south, it will be cloudy and mild with patchy drizzle, whilst in northern Britain expect brighter skies with some sunshine. Showery in north-west Scotland - snow for the Highlands. Gales in the far north-east will ease.

By the evening, a developing secondary low (named 'Storm Doris' by the Met Office) moves in quickly from the Atlantic, and heavy rain will set in for the north & west. Winds increasing to gale force, particularly around coasts in the west & south overnight. Risk of widespread gales for England & Wales into Thursday daytime. Today's temperatures will range from 11 to 13C in the south, to 8 or 9C in the north. Have a great day. Garry

Week ahead: Staying unsettled - Very wet in north-west, Feb 22 - 10:09

Some improvement during next week, but possible frost Stormy weather on Thursday will clear by Friday, but further wind and rain will affect the country over the weekend.
