Here's the weather forecast for this weekend. Mainly sunny and windy in the south with strengthening winds on the coasts. Temperatures around 17°C. Moving north the temperatures are going to be lower than average for the season. We're expecting some rain during the night between Saturday and Sunday, but the days are going to be dry with a little sunshine. Most of Sunday is going to be cloudy in Manchester and Liverpool and the surrounding areas. Damp and slightly foggy in the early morning. On the west coast the wind is going to turn into a milder breeze around midday. In Northern Ireland the weather is going to be quite miserable. It is going to be cloudy and rainy for most of the weekend and the sun is going to come out again only in the late afternoon of Sunday when the weekend is almost over. If you are planning a picnic, postpone it to another date. In Scotland the weekend is going to be dry but quite chilly. Next weekend the only really safe region for a picnic and a nice stroll in the countryside is Yorkshire, where the temperatures are going to be mild and the weather is going to be dry but not always sunny.
