All downhill tonight

What a glorious start to the day.

Just what you'd expect after last night’s mostly cloud free skies. High pressure will not be long-lived though now and will slowly slip eastwards during the course of today, allowing a front to push in.

Some mist around this morning in places, especially through the West Midlands, but that will burn off quickly to give a warm, sunny start.

Great if you like sunshine, if you don't, there is not a lot that can be done I’m afraid.

Later on, a weather front approaches rather slowly so we expect a change from the west with a west / east split developing. Unlimited sunshine for the extreme east of the east Midlands all day, feeling warmer than Saturday here, especially through parts of Leicestershire and Lincolnshire 26 or 27c, 81f.

Cooler further west under the thicker cloud, and with a strengthening wind it will feel a mite fresher.

On Monday, outbreaks of rain are expected, nothing heavy or prolonged but ‘on and off’ and it will be quite a grey day. Still some warmth in the temperatures though.

Tuesday will prove cooler with more showers. Still some drier, brighter weather around though.

Wednesday, a front will be lying across northern Britain, the tail end of that affecting the Midlands, so rather a cloudy day with average temperatures.

Thereafter, a windy end to the week, complicated further by various ex-hurricanes

pushing through.
