Turning Unsettled Mid-Week
After today, the weather looks set to turn increasingly unsettled, with cloud and patchy rain spreading in across the north on Wednesday and Thursday and heavy showers becoming widespread across the south. Although it will turn drier and brighter on Friday, it will also turn increasingly cool as a northerly wind develops. Then the long Jubilee Holiday Weekend looks like remaining mostly dry right through to Bank Holiday Tuesday, though with winds from the north, it will be on the cool side.
Back to today, another day of warm hazy sunshine across much of England, Wales, Northern Ireland and western Scotland. Western and southwestern areas will likely remain dry, but some isolated heavy and thundery showers look likely to develop across SE England this afternoon, with some lighter showers popping up across parts of the Midlands and eastern England too. Across eastern Scotland and NE England, it will be a cloudier and cooler day with some patchy drizzle near eastern coasts. Perhaps not quite as warm as Monday, though temperatures should reach 19C in Glasgow, 22C in Leeds and 24C in London, perhaps only 15-16C in Edinburgh and Newcastle - where we have the cloud.
Any lingering showers across SE England this evening should die out overnight. Otherwise mainly dry for central, southern and western areas. Cloud and patchy drizzle will spread across Scotland and northern England.
Then for Wednesday, a mainly dry and bright morning across England and Wales, but heavy and thundery showers will develop widely during the afternoon. Still warm, with 25C possible in London, 21C in Manchester. Scotland will be cloudy and cool, with rain or drizzle at times. Thursday will again be showery across England, Wales and Northern Ireland and cooler too. Turning drier and brighter across Scotland after a cloudy start with patchy drizzle. Drying up everywhere on Friday with some sunny spells for most, but much cooler with temperatures reaching the mid-teens at best.
