High Pressure has a firm grip on our weather over the coming days keeping it settled and warm until we get to Friday when a cold front will drag cooler air and unsettled conditions from the North.

Tonight will remain dry and we will enjoy a bright, fine evening. Temperatures will drop a little lower than last night at 9c. In the West Midlands there may be a few mist patches with the clear spells and light winds.

Tomorrow any mist will be quick to clear and we will enjoy sunny spells across the region. The afternoon will be even brighter with blue sky and sunshine for many locations and temperatures will climb rapidly to highs of 25c. The average for this time of year is 19c!
