Southern Britain becoming humid and warm
A deep area of low pressure crossing the country on Tuesday will deepen and move into the North Sea, leaving a legacy of showers through the middle of the week. These showers become more scattered as pressure begins to build towards the west. Toward the weekend, a slack pressure pattern will bring plenty of fine weather but also the risk of a few showers. High pressure is more likely to extend further across Britain next week.
