Thanks to a cool air mass in place coupled with light northerly air flow, despite plentiful sunshine, afternoon maximum temperatures will be below average with 3-6C over Scotland and northern England, 5-8C across the Midlands, southern England and Wales as well as over Ireland and Northern Ireland.
