This week we've seen a split in weather conditions across the British Isles, all the way through. On Monday when northwestern areas got off to a warm and bright start, London and the South East started the week off with flashes of lightning, rumbles of thunder and torrential downpours. But what's to come over the weekend?

Some areas had more than a month's worth of rainfall dumped on their doorsteps in just a few hours. Santon Downham had to soak up 2.02 inches of rain on Monday. It led to scenes of flash flooding closing down a number of roads, especially across Essex. Worthing and Ruislip got drenched and Hove Station was left underwater and forced to close.
From Tuesday onwards it became largely settled and warm in the south. Hurn in Dorset took the high this week, touching 27.4C.
Meanwhile Scotland and N. Ireland became stuck with cloudier skies and showers, which hasn't proved helpful for the Commonwealth Games taking place in Glasgow.
These unsettled weather conditions will take hold more widely across the British Isles during the next 24 hours, heralding an unsettled weekend to come in most areas, and so the weather's not looking very promising for the final few days of sporting action in Glasgow.
Showers will break out in most areas, some heavy and prolonged. South East England will again cling on to the best of the warm, dry and brighter weather, although some sunshine should also develop between the showers in the far west later on.
Showers will be widespread across the British Isles and could be locally heavy, accompanied by brisk winds too. The north and west of Scotland, western parts of N Ireland and the far south and southeast of England will see occasional brighter breaks. Temperatures will also be nearer average for the time of year.
Southern areas will become mostly dry and bright with lighter winds. In the north though it's another day of sunshine and blustery showers, the showers merging together to give some longer spells of rain at first.
