Sunniest in west
A good amount of dry and bright weather today, but also a risk of local heavy showers to spoil things in a few places!
Showers will be hit and miss, forming most widely into the afternoon, particularly in eastern regions, but the odd burst may exist in east Wales, also moving from Devon into Dorset near the coast.
Western coastal fringes will be sunniest through the afternoon. A fresh westerly breeze around southwestern coasts, otherwise winds are fairly light.
Today's top temperatures reaching 21 to 24C in central, south and eastern England, a little cooler in the west, north and near coasts, 17 to 21C.
Have a great day.
