Weather staying close and humid

It's cloudy, misty and grey for north-eastern England and eastern Scotland today.

For the rest of us it's brighter and feeling warm for mid-September with highs of 25-26C possible, but close and humid.

The warmth and humidity will trigger thundery downpours across the south and south-west today and tonight.

Mostly bright and warm with some showers in the south

It will be a murky to start for many but brightening up with warm sunny spells as low cloud and mist becomes confined to northeastern Britain. There is a risk of heavy, thundery showers in the south, most likely in the south-west, although many places will stay dry.

The low cloud, mist and fog in the north-east will spread westwards across central parts overnight. The risk of thundery showers persists in southern Britain.

Come tomorrow, there will be scattered heavy, thundery showers across south and central areas. Elsewhere it will be rather cloudy but mostly dry aside from some rain in North Scotland.

A dull start for many with patchy rain in places

There will be dull and misty conditions across many central and eastern parts at first today. These should become confined to eastern areas through the morning, with some patchy rain and drizzle here.

Many southern and western areas will brighten up slowly and will become warm. There is then the risk of some thundery showers in the far south-west this evening.
