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.


Temperatures fall but will remain warm for most

It will be a less hot day for most today but it will still feel warm with temperatures reaching 28C (83F) in the east.

Showers in the far north will soon clear to leave some sunshine this morning.

Further showers, heavy and thundery at times will spread into southern areas this morning before they move northwards this afternoon.

Sunnier and fresher conditions will spread in from the southwest as the showers clear.
