Whilst your at it DBW, we're planning a BBQ here at Jambo Towers Saturday 3pm BST - Will we need sun cream or umbrellas?
<span class="ev_code_YELLOW">Feeling the pressure for the welfare of RJ's BBQ, DBW enlists the help of all top cientists on the field, to ensure sunny skyes over JAMBO TOWERS. No expenses were spared and all available satelites were put to good use in order to ensure the latest info on real time.</span>
Met Office view
A large swirl of cloud can be seen in mid Atlantic, to the southwest of Iceland. This deep area of low pressure is the remains of Tropical Storm Chantal. A broad band of white cloud can be seen radiating out from the centre of this low across Iceland and then down to the west of Scotland and Ireland. This corresponds to a cold front that will spread rain into Scotland and Northern Ireland today, and into Northern England on Saturday. Speckled cloud covers most of England and Wales with the darker patches on the satellite picture indicating some good breaks, allowing sunny spells. Some bright, white patches of cloud can be seen across Northern Italy and the Balkans. These are heavy and thundery showers which have given some heavy downpours in places.

What a detailed response to my question! You're both naturally invited to the big do now. Throw your beer in the ice bucket bin on the way in and sit back and relax by the sea whilst I burn the sausages!
