Sunny today and tomorrow but cloudy by Thursday

For many, especially in the East Midlands, it was a foggy start. Further West, cloud rolled in overnight. Everywhere is seeing more in the way of sunshine now and breaks in the cloud. It will remain dry through today, just the small chance of a few showers in the South-West. Temperatures will reach 22c/23c.

It will be dry everywhere this evening and overnight and a repeat performance with mist and fog rolling in for the East Midlands. It will not be particularly chilly with lows of 12c.

Tomorrow, any cloud will quickly break up as the sun gets to work. It will remain dry, and all in all we can expect a pleasant day with lots of sunny spells on offer. Temperatures will hit 22c, good for the time of year.

Thursday and Friday do not look as promising, with more cloud moving in and bright rather than sunny spells. Expect rain overnight on Friday before it clears to give us a dry and bright Saturday.
