According to theMet Office, bright spells can still be expected but scattered showers and a risk of hail
and thunder are extremely likely throughout the day.
A Met Office spokesman said early cloud and outbreaks of rain will clear to the north today while further heavy and thundery showers, with the risk of hail
, will follow during the afternoon.
The forecast for the rest of this week predicts a mixture of rain, wind and a risk of hail
"Another cold day with highs of only 6C to 9C, in fresh and gusty north-west winds strong on northern coasts." And it may be wise to batten down to hatches on Thursday as there is a risk of hail

and gusty winds.
But there could be thundery downpours with a risk of hail
