and we're seeing low pressure develop a bit more towards the bay of biscay. in between, easterly winds, maybe gusty winds once again but the clearest of skies northern half of the uk. after a frosty start for one or two, scotland even in northern ireland, northern england, another lovely sunny day. morning mist and low cloud, particularly around some of the coast, will thin and breakm to allow sunnier spells. there could be a bit more sunshine then in recent mornings, across parts of north wales, north midlands and into northern portions of east anglia. further south, grey skies once again to start the day. maybe the odd spot of rain. most will be dry, feeling cool in that breeze, even though we start the day with the hiest of the temperatures. elsewhere, under the sunshine, the temperatures will pick up the most. there will be a bit more sunshine across southern area, breaking through the cloud at times, through friday but cloud will return towards east anglia and the south—east later, menaing a greyer end to the day but at least we should see one or two more glimpses of sunshine than we have done of late. warmest weather west of scotland,
western parts of wales, 18—20 celsius possible once more. cool with the onshore breeze across the east. that breeze still with us into friday night. by saturday morning, we'll actually see some rain coming towards cornwall, isles of scilly and potentially also the channel islands. also with more cloud across wales, northern england, north midlands, northern ireland, temperatures holding up, but there will be some spots of rain and drizzle. a grey start to saturday but what is happening as we go into saturday, is this area of low pressure getting close by. there is uncertainty how far north that weather front gets into saturday, so if the forecast is crucial, keep coming back and checking but it does look like it will be cornwall, isles of scilly, the channel islands most prone to rain, maybe a few showers across devon. also cloudy for northern england, north midlands, north wales and northern ireland. morning rain and drizzle turning dry and a bit brighter through the day. scotland still sitting pretty with the sunshine. warmest in the west. a bit more in the way of brightness towards east anglia and the south—east, so feeling a little less chilly than recent days even though it is still rather breezy. whether that weather front gets really towards us or not,
the low pressure responsible does clear off into central europe as the go into sunday, opening the door to north—easterly winds. that will make it feel rather cooler on northern and eastern coasts on sunday, with a bit of cloud at times, maybe the odd shower but the vast majority will be dry. southern areas feeling a bit warmer and the best of the sunshine to parts of south and the west. into next week, low pressure will remain dominant towards the south—west of the country. high pressure to the north and that will mean easterly winds will remain with us. they will fluctuate between south—easterly ones which may bring something milder but also those chillier north—easterly ones too. most staying dry. welcome to bbc news, broadcasting to viewers in north america and around the globe. my name is mike embley. our top stories: smiles and applause after congress takes the first step towards scrapping obamaca re in favour of trumpca re. this is, make no mistake, this is a
