High pressure builds and temperatures rise
A settled and warmer weather pattern is expected to come about as we go through this week with very warm temperatures for many by the end of the week into the weekend. North and northwest Scotland, however, seeing more cloud and possible rain. More widespread rain possible early next week.

High pressure stationed close by to Ireland keeps things fair for most. A weak cold front looks to drift across northern Britain bringing variable cloud and possibly a few local spots of rain to northern and western parts of Scotland into northwest Ireland. A dry and sunny day elsewhere. Feeling a little fresher across the north than Wednesday, although elsewhere staying humid with highs 17 to 25C.
The high pressure pushes in more on top of the UK and Ireland by the end of the week. Weak fronts may continue to skirt across northern Scotland, perhaps a little rain for the Northern Isles. Generally dry, sunny and pleasantly warm. Strongest breeze in the far north, otherwise light winds and sea breezes. Highs 22 to 27C.
Fair weather is expected to continue as high pressure remains in charge. Plenty of strong and warm sunshine. Northern Scotland may again see more cloud and possible patchy light rain passing by. Light northwesterly breezes in northern Britain. Some coastal sea breezes in the south. Highs reaching 23 to 28C inland, fresher near coasts and across the far northwest of Scotland.
High pressure most likely stays centred over Britain. Lots of summer sunshine, light winds and sea breezes. Highs 23 to 28C inland, fresher some coasts and in the far north of Scotland.
It continues to look like high pressure may begin to drift eastward. If this is so then expect one or two thundery showers to begin to form for some places. Quite humid, temperatures 24 to 29C for many, highest across central and southern England.
The high pressure continues to push east allowing for low pressure and an associated front to push into western parts of Britain bringing rain here. Staying dry, fine and very warm further east. HIghs at 23 to 29 for most, cooler towards the west of Scotland, Northern Ireland and Ireland.
