A front passes eastward with a spell of rain overnight into Saturday morning, clearing eastern counties into the morning. A few clusters of showers follow from the west, but there will be sunny spells too.

Heavy rain passing eastwards, most prolonged over western hills. Driest toward the southeast of England. Mild air, reaching 10 to 13C.
