Thursday will be another mainly dry for much of the UK with bright or sunny spells and while temperatures won't be quite as high as of late it will be another warm or very warm day, especially across England and Wales. There is now a greater risk of a few heavy showers developing through the afternoon across parts of Scotland and extending down into parts of N England and perhaps Wales as well. Local downpours possible in association with these. Highs 17C to 24C.
Any showers ease away during Thursday evening and then many areas will be dry overnight with clear spells and variable cloud. A cool night, especially in the countryside, less-so in towns and cities. Lows, 8C to 13C.
During Friday and, overall a ridge of high pressure will maintain the settled conditions of late with further bright or sunny spells and pleasantly warm too. However, as was the case on Thursday some locally heavy afternoon showers could well develop in places, these certainly localised, but perhaps focused across parts of S Scotland, down into N England, Wales and perhaps the Midlands at greatest risk of these during the afternoon. Highs, 17C to 25C.
At the moment little change in the forecast into Saturday as fine weather is maintained across most areas with some bright or sunny spells at times too. Later in the day though and the first Atlantic weather systems for some considerable time are forecast to approach from the west to bring thicker cloud and some rain or showers into parts of SCotland and Ireland. Highs 18C to 26C.
