A return to more mixed and cooler conditions for most from mid-week
Conditions stay mostly dry, sunny and very warm for Bank Holiday Monday but this changes from mid-week with the return of a westerly flow once. Our weather will become more mixed once again with showery outbreaks of rain at times. Temperatures will feel much cooler as well, particularly towards next weekend with the arrival of a northwesterly flow for a time.

Fronts edge east across Ireland and the UK on Wednesday. This triggers some heavy bursts of rain in Northern Ireland and across Scotland. Showers developing over northern and central England and Wales too. Brighter conditions follow to the west for much of Ireland and later for western parts of the UK. Highs near 26C or 27C in southeast England, 15 to 24C for most.
A ridge of high pressure briefly builds on Thursday bringing sunny spells and mostly dry conditions across the UK for much of the day before another area of low pressure brings outbreaks of rain and gusty winds to Ireland. This moves into Northern Ireland and western Scotland through the afternoon and may bring showers to northwestern parts of England and Wales later. Highs at 15 to 22C.
A westerly flow on Friday brings a mixture of broken cloud, sunny spells and outbreaks of rain. Rain most prevalent over western parts of Ireland and Scotland. The best of the sun over central and southern England. High temperatures at 16 to 23C.
A west to northwesterly flow continues on Saturday bringing further mixed conditions. Showers and outbreaks of rain over Northern Ireland and the northern half of the UK. Drier and brighter to the south. Highs at 16 to 23C.
