Plenty of sunshine for the summer solstice

by - ITV Weather Presenter

Plenty of sunshine for the longest day of the year - just a little cloud around but staying bright.

The cloud across Scotland and Northern Ireland will break up to leave a better afternoon.

In the sunshine it'll be 19-20C in the north, 25C in the south, so a little warmer than of late - but cooler by the coasts.
