It’s a much improved day across the country compared to recent times with dry and bright weather for all except the far North and Northern Isles where there’s a lot of cloud with outbreaks of rain. Temps this afternoon in the mix of sun and cloud have reached a pleasant 19 to 21C.

Tonight will see cloud and rain push up from England. This rain is associated with a warm front so expect it to turn muggy with lows only dipping to 13 or 14C.

Thursday will be a wet day with the rain band continuing it’s northward progression. Conditions gradually improve through the afternoon across the South and Central Lowlands. Behind the front it will be warm and humid. Highs of 23, maybe 24C in the Borders. 21 or 22C widely. Only 17C in the damp North.

Friday looks blustery with outbreaks of rain.


A band of rain associated with a warm front continues it’s northward journey this afternoon and by dinnertime, it’s a thoroughly damp one from Manchester north while it dries out to the South and you’ll notice the much muggier feel to the air.

Through the overnight, the Midlands and Liverpool-Manchester areas dries, turning increasingly humid. It remains wet with heavy pulses across Cumbria and Northumberland overnight. Dry with mist and fog patches elsewhere. Lows of 13C in the North, 16 or 18C in the South.

Thursday is looking fine, dry, sunny and downright HOT, particularly from Birmingham down to London where temperatures are set to briefly soar into the 27 to 32C range, elsewhere 22-25C with all of today’s rain generally north of the border.

A front sweeps across the country Friday bringing wet, possibly thundery conditions to all, temperatures well down on Thursday’s values but still a respectable 21 to 27C.


It’s an improving evening to come from south to north after what has been a rather soggy day. You’ll notice the much muggier feel if your out and about this evening, especially in South and Mid Wales. Clear spells will develop overnight but it’s warm and humid one with lows of 12C in the countryside, perhaps 17C in Swansea and Cardiff.

Thursday starts wet in the North but this quickly gives way to a sunny day throughout Wales and it will be markedly warm or very warm compared to recent days with highs of 24 to 27C widely. Make the most of it though as a front pulls showers in along with a stiff breeze Friday. Highs return to the 20-23C range.

Northern Ireland

After a decent start to the day, it’s a poor end as rain continues to gather across the south, spreading north during the overnight. Lows hold up at 12-15C.

Thursday dawns wet with some heavy pulses dotted here and there but the canopy of rain will break up becoming showery through the afternoon with sunshine peeking through towards dinnertime. Winds turn fresh out of the south. Highs tomorrow peak at a milder 19 to 21C.

Friday looks showery with highs of 18-20C.


It’s a wet miserable night to come with rain covering much of the country through this evening and overnight. Some embedded pulses riding the frontal boundary could be heavy producing localised flooding. It will remain mild, even muggy with lows dropping to only 13-16C.

Thursday dawns wet and blustery with through the morning into the afternoon, the rain should break up and clear from the South with some sun returning but it looks to remain wet and breeze through the Midlands and North, highs of 18-21C.

Friday looks showery with a stiff breeze.
