Hot start, thundery weekend and becoming cooler

The weather is set to stay fair through the first part of this week. There will be plenty of sunshine around and it will be feeling very warm or even hot on some days. By the weekend there are hints of some thunderstorms arriving in the size of the UK and Ireland. Please don't age northwards into the early stages of next week and it probably becomes cooler too.
