While there remains some uncertainties over the details regarding shower distribution by Wednesday it remains likely that more unsettled conditions are possible nationwide with many areas at risk of seeing some showers and these still potentially heavy and thundery as the day progresses too. Drier and brighter, if not sunnier conditions still likely mind in-between the showers. Still warm but temperatures a degree or two lower than previous days. Highs 15C to 22C.
At the moment very similar weather conditions will continue into Thursday with many areas experiencing some drier and brighter, if not sunnier weather at times, but there will be an on-going risk of some heavy showers or possible thunderstorms at times too, these perhaps focused across England and Wales. However, potentially becoming drier from the west later in the day too as high pressure tries to build to the west of the British Isles. Perhaps slightly cooler too as winds becoming more N or NW'ly but still light. Highs 15C to 21C.
By next Friday there remains some forecast evidence to suggest that pressure may begin to rise once again so while some further heavy showers or isolated thunderstorms may still be possible, perhaps especially in the south and east, Friday may well progress towards drier conditions with some bright or sunny spells, perhaps especially across more northern and western areas of the British Isles. Many areas still maintaining warm but less humid and with temperatures not as high as earlier in the week. Highs 14C to 21C.
At the moment high pressure may well have returned by Saturday and this could well mean a mainly dry day for most areas with some bright or sunny spells. There is evidence to suggest low pressure may be close by just to the south-east, so some isolated heavy showers or thunderstorms may still be possible though across far southern and south-eastern regions, but many areas having mainly dry conditions. Pleasantly warm. Highs, 14C to 21C.
At the moment next Sunday is likely to remain mainly dry for most with pressure still relatively high. A few scattered showers can't be ruled out but, otherwise, a lot of dry weather is predicted with some bright or sunny spells too and winds still light and perhaps predominantly N or NE'ly. Pleasantly warm. Highs, 15C to 21C.
Uncertainty by next Monday but perhaps an increased risk of some showers or thunderstorms for southern areas of the UK through the day, but more northern and western areas maintaining mainly dry conditions with some bright or sunny spells as high pressure continues to dominate either to the north or north-west. Winds mainly light or moderate N or NE'ly. Pleasantly warm for most, but much cooler near to the east coast. Highs 13C to 22C, highest in the west.
