A mainly dry and warm weekend ahead for most parts of the northwest.
A cool breeze from the east on Saturday will gradually ease throughout the weekend and turn more southeasterly. Temperatures will be at least 5 degrees above the average for late May.
There is now a risk that showers developing in the southwest of the UK could clip southern and western parts of the region (Isle of Man, Cheshire/Wales border) on Sunday. If you catch one of these they will be heavy and possibly thundery, but the likelihood is low.
Saturday will start cloudy with any heavy, showery rain in the north edging away. Turning brighter and very warm, with plenty of sunshine for the afternoon and evening. Highs 24°C.
SUNDAY & MONDAY:
Mostly dry and very warm with plenty of sunshine but with more cloud overall compared to Saturday. The odd heavy shower may develop in the far south. This risk extends further north into Monday, but many areas will escape with a dry day.
