“Tonight we will see winds pick up in the north west of the UK.
“The thickening clouds will come and we will also see some rain, but it will probably be dry and clear.
“Tomorrow starts off a little chilly in East Anglia and the Northeast, should be milder than the Northwest.
“High pressure hanging over the UK at the moment will be pushed out to the east, allowing these weather fronts to go down tomorrow and bring the rain with them.
“We’ll see it getting wetter all over Northern Ireland tomorrow.
“After a clear cloud-less start in England and Wales, we’ll see cloud build up from the northwest, but it’s likely to remain dry.
