The final third of the month is expected to become warm or very warm and thundery too.

A mixed week with a mostly westerly wind dominating the weather pattern.
There will be some rain around, mostly affecting northern and western Scotland as weak fronts move east.

A ridge of high pressure over Ireland ans southern England and Wales. This brings drier than average conditions here, although there could be an odd spot of rain from time to time.
