Brits hoping to celebrate Father’s Day will be hit by rain across the country as all four corners of the UK are forecast to witness rainfall.
In its mid-range forecast, the Met Office said: “A northwest-southeast contrast in weather patterns is likely across the UK at the start of the period.
“While cloudy conditions with outbreaks of rain are expected across the north and west, where it will be breezy as well; the south and east will see mainly dry weather with some sunshine.
“Temperatures will be around average in the north, but often feeling warm further south – perhaps very warm or hot conditions in the southeast for a time.
“Further ahead, we are likely to see rather changeable conditions, with spells of rain or showers for many areas, especially the north.
“More settled conditions are expected in the southwest. Temperatures will range from near normal to warm in most places.”

“The track of the low-pressure system currently looks to be off the northwest coast of the UK on Friday and Saturday and winds are likely to reach around 45mph for some parts of the north of the UK, with a chance of some gusts in excess of 55mph in some exposed northwestern islands and coastal areas.”
