High pressure influences the south of Britain and Ireland resulting in a fair and warm day for many. Fronts drift into western Scotland bringing more cloud here, plus some rain or drizzle developing. Cloud filling in a little during the day inland, and some western coasts may become cloudier. A light westerly breeze, although stronger breezes toward the northwest. Only 16C in the far northwest, but widely up to a humid 22 to 25C across central, southern and eastern areas.
High pressure stationed out the to west of Ireland keeps things fair for most. A weak cold front may drift across northern Britain bringing variable cloud and a few local spots of rain. Northwestern Scotland may stay rather dull. Sunny spells across most southern regions. A northwesterly breeze, strongest in the north. Feeling a little fresher than Wednesday, although southern England may stay on the humid side, highs 17 to 23C.
Pressure remains high near and west of Britain leading to a fine day for most places. 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 25C, warmest central & southeast England. Nearer 15C in northwest Scotland.
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. Light northwesterly breezes in northern Britain. Some coastal sea breezes in the south. Highs reaching 23 to 27C inland, fresher near coasts.
