Blustery winds in Scotland but calm and dry elsewhere

An earlier satellite picture reveals the weather system responsible for a contrast in weather and temperature today. In what has been a story of two halves, there has been plenty of sunshine across the south and the south east, meaning temperatures bounced up towards 27C. For the rest of the UK there was a fresher feel to the day, around 21C at best with the cloud cover.

Tonight, expect blustery winds to continue around the fringes of Scotland, with a few showery outbreaks from time to time. Otherwise it will be calm, dry and quiet, with not too much going on at all.

Weather: Clouds to bring spots of rain and fresher air

Expect much more in the way of cloud in the coming few hours, which will sink its way through England and Wales.

That will produce a few spots of drizzly rain, but not amounting to too much.

Further north, through parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland, blustery showers are expected on off - likely to keep it feeling quite cool and fresh.

Highs of 26C (79F) or 27C (81F) are expected.

Any rain across the far southeast of England will quickly clear this morning, leaving many southern and central parts of England with a fine and dry day, with plenty of sunny spells developing.

Elsewhere, a band of cloud and light and patchy rain will gradually sink southeastwards during the course of the day.

Skies will begin to brighten up later in the day across Scotland and Northern Ireland, however further showers will move into western parts at times.

It will feel a little fresher than yesterday across Scotland and Northern Ireland, but across southern England it will become very warm with a top temperature of 27C in the southeast.

More rain in south-east may delay flood clean-up

More heavy rain overnight in the south-east may delay a clean-up operation following a day of flash floods.

However forecasters said there would not be a repeat of the deluges in East Anglia, the south-east and London today.

The Environment Agency said that "recovery operations may be affected" but that flooding is not expected during the next three days.

A lively start to the week with intense thundery rain through the south-east already - and further downpours in places this afternoon.

A few scattered, light showers will drift through Northern Ireland, the West Country and Wales.

Elsewhere a fine, bright day with sunshine. Looking good in Glasgow for the Commonwealth Games.

Highs of 22C in the north and 25C in the south, but muggy with the thundery air.
