There will continue to be plenty of warm sunshine on Thursday but with a renewed risk of some heavy and thundery showers too.
It's a mainly dry start to Thursday across many areas with some bright or sunny spells and temperatures will soon rise as well with many areas becoming warm through the morning. Byt the end of the morning some locally heavy and perhaps thundery showers may begin to develop across parts of England and Wales.
Through the afternoon many areas of Scotland will maintain a lot of dry weather with plenty of sunshine and very warm here too, especially across western Scotland. Elsewhere and the mixture of drier, sunnier intervals but with scattered heavy showers and possible thunderstorms remains across England and Wales. Warm or very warm and humid.
Evening heavy showers or storms may well continue well into the evening and overnight across some areas of England and Wales, but many northern areas will end the day dry with some sunshine and this then leading on to a dry night ahead with clear spells. A mild or warm night for many, especially in urban areas.
