Weather blog: Summer solstice and a look ahead to Wimbledon

Today is the summer solstice, where the sun reaches its highest position in thesky, marking the longest day of the year.

The day is being celebrated by many, particularly the thousands of early riserswho journeyed to the historic ancient site of Stonehenge.

Sadly we didn’t have the clearest of conditions this morning, but we end theday on a different note. Some beautiful evening sunshine, perfect if you areheading out.

This weekend the weather turns unsettled, low pressure pulling in a series offronts from the Atlantic.

It will be unseasonable windy, making it feel cool and fresh.

For some this will be a welcome relief as the past few days (and nights) havebeen muggy and humid.

Tomorrow's rain will ease through the day. A few cloud breaks are possible, butwith the strong wind, temperatures will be pegged back.

On Sunday we are at risk of seeing some sharp showers with the risk of thundertoo, whilst there will be some sunshine in between any showers, we keep theblustery winds, so it will feel cool.

With Wimbledon starting on Monday, all eyes will no doubt turn to the weatherand thankfully the forecast is looking a little more hopeful.

High pressure builds into next week and we move into a more settled spell ofweather across the southeast.

Whilst it wont be particularly warm, the high pressure will bring us somesunshine, and gradually lighter winds.
