Not as hot as recently but staying warm overall, mainly dry until next week, a brisk wind in the south
The hot temperatures of the last few days are likely to be disappearing quickly, although it will still remain warm for many areas especially in the west. When the sky is clear overnight there could be some cool mornings with mist and fog patches in the north. Most areas are going to be staying dry and there will be some decent spells of sunshine. However always feeling cooler on eastern coast with a brisk east to north east wind affecting the south of the country.

Saturday will see high pressure build back over northern parts of the British Isles while lower pressure stays to the south. A largely dry and fine day for most areas though southern parts of England will be cloudier with rain brushing the southern coast. It will be breezy here too. A risk of some low cloud hugging the coasts of northeast England and southeast England, perhaps giving some spots of drizzle here. Highs at 15C in northern Scotland, 21C in southern England, but feeling cool for all in the breeze in the south.
High pressure stays to the north of the UK and Ireland on Sunday, but with low pressure close by southern areas there are likely to be outbreaks of rain for parts of southern England and south Wales. At the present time most of this looks set to be fairly light. The best sunshine in Scotland, northwest England and for western coasts of Wales. Highs range from 13C in the far northwest to 21C in the southeast. Feeling cool on eastern coasts.
Pressure remains high over most of the UK and Ireland on Monday. There will be plenty of sunny spells, the best of these in more western areas of England and Wales as well as Scotland. Some lower cloud may affect eastern coast of England perhaps bringing some spots of drizzle too. High temperatures range from 15 to 21C.
Tuesday may see pressure lowering over northwestern parts of the country as a front brings outbreaks of rain into Scotland, Northern Ireland and Ireland as well as into northwestern parts of England and Wales later. A mostly cloudy day though brighter skies follow the rain along with scattered showers. Highs at 13C in northwest Scotland, 23C in southeast England.
A change in weather conditions for all on Wednesday as low-pressure sweeps eastwards. This will bring cloud and periods of rain as well as the risk of strong winds to all areas. Detail is tricky to pin down at the moment although it seems as if the heaviest rain will be in the west. A much cooler day at 11 to 19C.
Thursday could see one area of low pressure clear east and another move in from the west keeping conditions very unsettled for the UK and Ireland. Again, detail is tricky at the moment, but outbreaks of rain and strong winds seem likely to affect most areas. Staying cooler with highs ranging from 12 to 18C.
