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.
