Say Goodbye To The Heatwave
A new, week and a new weather type on the way as the spell of hot, sunny weather slowly draws to a close to be replaced by cooler and showery weather.
Today will see further warm sunshine for many though with much of England and western Scotland seeing highs up into the mid-twenties once more. For southwest England, Wales and Eastern Scotland it is cooler and cloudier with maxes of 16-21 more typical.
There will be some showers around today as well, potentially developing from southeast England, up through the spine of the country and into central Scotland, Wales too could also catch a few. Whilst they will be fairly isolated, where they do develop they could become quite intense with frequent lightning, hail and torrential rain possible.
The showers and storms will eventually die out overnight, then into tomorrow the whole country will be into a cooler, fresher airmass with highs peaking into the low twenties in the south, the teens for much of the rest of the country. There'll still be some sunny spells to be had for much of England and Wales but further north, and particularly into Scotland it'll be cloudier and damp with drizzly rain. The sun further south is also likely to fire up a few more sharp showers - again these could be heavy and thundery during the second part of the day.
Wednesday is expected to be a sun and showers day, with widespread, sharp showers developing, then as we move into the latter part of the week the showers are likely to become lighter and further in between, but by this point it will be a touch cooler again with highs everywhere into the teens at best.
Looking further ahead toward the Jubilee Weekend
, it's a difficult call currently, but it does seem that high pressure won't be too far away meaning there should at least be some dry, bright weather to be had. For all the details on this though, check our Jubilee forecast
