Elsewhere, there will be a mixture of sunshine and showers. The showers are likely to be heavy at times, with the risk of hail and thunder, and these will move eastwards during the afternoon.

The heaviest of the showers will become confined across southern Scotland and Northeast England later in the day. It will be less warm than previous days in the south, but it will feel pleasantly warm in the sunshine, with temperatures reaching highs of 23 Celsius (73F).


Thundery rain in the north but dry and sunny in the south

Expect heavy and thundery rain across the north of Britain but these should slowly ease and clear away northwards during the day.

For southern areas it will be mostly dry and sunny, but possibly with a few thundery showers in the far southeast during the morning and perhaps across Northern Ireland later.

It will still be warm for many, even very warm or locally hot across the east and southeast of England where temperatures could reach 30 Celsius (86F), although cooler and fresher air will arrive from the west later.

A fresher start than on previous days with a little mist or fog in places, but dry with plenty of sunshine which will soon burn off any murkiness.

It'll turn increasingly warm and humid later, or hot towards the southeast with top temperatures of 30C (86F).

Cloud will gradually build from the southwest, with isolated, potentially thundery showers possible late in the day.
