High pressure builds in across the UK and Ireland on Friday giving a largely dry and fine day, however, there is the small risk of some patchy light rain across the north of Scotland and Northern Isles for a time. Cloudier skies for a time across the north as a weakened front moves through. Highs at 20 to 27C for many central and eastern areas, cooler towards the west.
High pressure strengthens through Saturday. It should be a dry day with sunny spells for most. Some low cloud and drizzle may trouble the far northwest of Ireland and then Scotland later in the day. A warm day for most with highs between 20 and 28C and could reach 30C in the southeast. Cooler across the northwest of Scotland.
Pressure remains high through Sunday across the British Isles giving most places a dry and sunny day, although northern and western Scotland as well as parts of Northern Ireland and northwest Ireland will see cloudier skies as well as patchy rain. Another very warm day for many with highs between 23 and 30C.
A weakened front will bring cloudier skies across Northern Ireland, the northern half of Ireland, Scotland and northern England with some patchy rain as it passes through. Drier with sunny spells further south. Highs at 14 to 19C across the north and west, but another very warm day across central and southern regions of England as well as south Wales with highs between 21 and 29C.
There are still signs that an area of low pressure is to move in across northern regions of the UK on Tuesday giving cloud and patchy rain here, though much of England, Wales and southern parts of Ireland look to remain dry with some sunshine about and feeling warm still. Highs at 20 to 27C across southern and central England, cooler elsewhere with highs between 15 to 20C.
