UK Forecast - July 01, 2015
Cooler Thursday
Thunderstorms for some

Rain and thunderstorms will spread from the south. Some torrential downpours, but very hit and miss. The south-east of England is most likely to see storms throughout the day, whilst a few lines of storms may also track north-eastwards across the Midlands and also Wales. Scattered heavy showers for Ireland, mainly in the west and north-west. In Scotland and northern England, it starts murky with low cloud and drizzle, then a risk of isolated thundery showers developing into the afternoon. Light winds overall, but nowhere near as hot, highs 26 or 27C in the south and east, typically 22 to 25C elsewhere.

Thursday night
The remains of any thunderstorms will clear, leaving a mostly dry night. Quite murky, with mist patches developing, particularly after daytime rain, and in southern coastal areas. Clear spells may develop in the west. Light winds. Overnight lows 10 to 16C, warmest in the east, and also across southern towns and cities.

A warm south-easterly pattern, with low pressure and fronts to the west of Ireland, and high pressure to the east. Most places will stay dry all day with sunshine. Fog patches may affect some eastern and later southern coasts. A fresh south-easterly breeze for Ireland and the south-west. Toward evening, thunderstorms are expected to move from northern France into southern England, extending north across much of Britain overnight into Saturday. Highs reaching 30C again in the south, nearer 27C for Midlands, and 23 to 25C for northern and western areas.

An area of thundery rain will have spread north across Britain and Ireland in the early hours of Saturday. Bursts of heavy rain and thunder are likely to continue much of the day in Scotland and northern England. Elsewhere, an isolated thundery shower may break out almost anywhere. Central and south-western Britain should become drier, brighter and feeling less humid. A south-westerly breeze developing. Top temperatures between 21 and 25C for most, but may again climb to 28 or 29C in sunshine in the south.
