High pressure remains in control on Thursday, centred east of the UK. This will be bringing plenty of dry weather with lots of sunshine. Some low cloud may affect northwest Scotland, and a few patches of lower cloud could drift onto the coasts of northeast England at first too. For most though the day is a fine one, although rather chilly to start. Highs at 21 or 22C in the far south, 20C in central Scotland, 21C in Ireland but just 15 or 16C where the easterly breeze affects eastern coasts.
With high pressure close by there will be clear skies for many overnight away from the west and northwest where it will be cloudier with the risk of patchy light and drizzle developing at times. Long clear periods over England, Wales, southern and eastern Scotland and eastern Ireland will see temperatures dropping to just 4 or 5C over rural parts of southern Scotland and northern England. Lows more widely at 8 to 12C.
High pressure holds to the east as a weak front makes its way across northern Scotland on Friday. This brings cloudier skies here and patchy, mostly light, rain. Staying dry and fine for England, Wales and Ireland although becoming breezy across southern England. More cloud in the south of England too as a front approaches southwestern areas. Feeling cool in that breeze, especially in the east, but warm for most, especially in the west. Highs at 23C in southern England but 15C along eastern coasts.
Saturday will see high pressure build back over northern parts of the British Isles while lower pressure stays to the south. A largely dry and fine day for most areas though southern parts of England will be cloudier with rain brushing the southern coast. It will be breezy here too. A risk of some low cloud hugging the coasts of northeast England and southeast England, perhaps giving some spots of drizzle here. Highs at 15C in northern Scotland, 21C in southern England, but feeling cool for all in the breeze in the south.
