Summary

Low pressure near northwest Scotland will drift away northwestwards as a filling feature. A second area of low pressure will move northwards over western areas today, but will lose its identity with time. Towards the end of the period, a new area of low pressure will move into southwestern parts bringing unsettled weather to the southwest of the United Kingdom.
