Largely dry and warm for many next week before unsettled weather moves in by the weekend.
A largely dry week is on the cards next week with the temperatures building too, though not as hot as of late. With lower pressure over the near continent much of the week heavier showers threaten southern English counties on some days. Low pressure could move in at the weekend bringing in more unsettled weather then.

Wednesday is a largely dry, fine and warm feeling day for many thanks to ridging high pressure from the Atlantic, though the far north of Scotland could see some showery rain and it will be windy here. Highs at 18 to 25C for most, cooler through north and west Scotland.
Mostly dry weather on Thursday with sunny spells about, though perhaps more widespread cloud bringing the threat of some showers across parts of northwest Scotland and Northern Ireland later. Lower pressure over France will also see some heavier showers, perhaps thundery, push north and affect far southern English counties. A potentially very warm day across much of England and Wales with highs here at 22 to 27C. Highs at 16 to 21C elsewhere.
Thundery, heavy showers in the south could become more widespread on Friday but do expect sunshine in between and not everywhere will get wet. Where showers develop watch for conditions to become briefly blustery. Highs at 17 to 25C.
Low pressure looks to sit close by the country on Saturday. This will bring showers and or longer spells of rain to many places. Winds look like they could become strengthened across some southern English counties too. Highs at 16 to 23C.
Low pressure stays dominant over the country on Sunday and continues to bring unsettled conditions to many. Strengthened winds and blustery showers, some merging into longer spells of rain through much of England, Wales and Ireland with more persistent spells of rain across parts of Scotland. Highs at 14 to 20C.
Low pressure to the north of Scotland on Monday will see cloudier skies and some outbreaks of rain here with a blustery wind. More dry weather about elsewhere but with some scattered showers expected, perhaps heavier showers through some southern English counties. Highs at 14 to 20C but cooler still in north and east Scotland.
