Cloud & damp
Drier to north
A cloudy start to this morning across much of England. There will be an area of rain affecting eastern and southern areas, perhaps with an odd crack of thunder. Some drizzle could affect hills further north and west, but this tending to turn to more persistent rain into this afternoon, probably over northern England, northern and eastern Wales. Becoming drier in the south, although remaining hot in the southeast. Drier for Scotland and Ireland with some sunny spells, the best in the west. The afternoon sees rain passing east through Ireland, a few showers in western Scotland. Highs at 19 to 30C.
Thundery rain in northern England at first, this fading through the early hours. Further spells of thundery rain in western Scotland and western Scotland as thundery rain clears the north. Becoming drier for most with some mist and fog patches in more sheltered areas. Lows at 10 to 15C.
Low pressure to the northwest of Scotland on Friday. A ridge of high pressure builds through Ireland as well as much of the UK. This brings a fair day with good spells of sunshine in England and Wales. Fair for eastern Scotland and most of Ireland too with sunny spells here. Patchy rain or drizzle could affect western Scotland throughout the day. Tops at 28C in the far southeast but 17 to 22C for most other places. Saturday

The rain edges eastwards with drier and brighter weather following into Wales and western England. Scotland and Ireland will be dry and bright with sunny spells, although cloud and some rain affecting the west of Ireland. Tops near 27C in southeast England, 17 to 22C elsewhere.
