Another hot day is expected although some patchy light rain across western parts in the morning with the rain becoming heavier and possibly thundery in the afternoon and in places overnight.
Thursday will see a mostly dry and hot day again for the UK, however, a weakened front will bring cloudier skies with possible patchy light rain and drizzle across western and central parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland. Cloudier skies for southwest England, western Wales as well as eastern parts of Ireland are expected too. Hazy sunshine elsewhere.
Through the afternoon an area of low pressure developing over Ireland will become more organised and intensify the existing front over western parts and bring some scattered showers to far western fringes of England and Wales as well as western Scotland where they might be thundery. Showers more widespread across Ireland and fringing into Northern Ireland, some of these possibly thundery too. Further east and across much of England it will be another dry day. Feeling hot again in the south and very warm elsewhere.
Overnight, showers will continue to affect western parts of the UK as well as Ireland, however, by early morning these should start to clear much of Ireland from the south. Rain over southwest England will move eastwards and affect southern central parts by morning. Rain may be locally heavy and possibly thundery here. Largely dry and feeling warm and humid overnight elsewhere.
