Becoming hot with a risk of thunderstorms later in the week

Dry weather is set to dominate through the course of the week. They will be some good spells of sunshine around and it is going to be getting warmer as well. It may be hot on Sundays in the early to middle stages of next week. We also need to focus towards the south by the end of the week for risk of some thunderstorms.
