Dry and warm weather for central, south & eastern England & Wales. Some hazy high cloud at times but plenty of sunshine too. Murky near western coasts, and fairly cloudy for many north & western districts as the remnants of fronts trail across these areas. A little rain or drizzle for western hills, becoming steadier rain at times for western Scotland & Ireland. A general south to southwesterly breeze. Feeling humid with highs at 20 to 25C in the southeast, cooler in the north and west.
Detail and timing is uncertain, but east and southeast England is likely to be largely dry and very warm. Fronts pushing in from the west bring a risk of rain for west & northwestern Britain and Ireland. This may extend further east through the day, with bursts of rain possible later for the Midlands. Winds strengthening as southwesterlies. Up to 27C in the southeast, nearer 22 to 24C in central areas, cooler in the west & northwest.
A fresher west to southwesterly flow is likely as a weakening cold front passes eastwards. A mix of sunshine and locally heavy showers. Rain may become more frequent in western Scotland. Breezy, or windy around coasts and hills in the west & north. High temperatures at 14 to 21C, warmest east.
A mixed pattern on Tuesday, with rain trying to move in from the west, whilst eastern areas stay drier, quite warm and humid. Local thundery bursts may form. High temperatures at 12 to 20C.
Staying fairly changeable into midweek, with areas of showers, or locally frequent rain in the west & north. The southeast staying drier. Highs 13 to 20C.
Showers becoming less frequent on Thursday with more sunshine around. Thundery showers perhaps moving from the continent across southern England later. Highs at 13 to 18C.
