Drier and warmer for a time

By Wednesday high pressure starts to migrate northwards. However it remains the dominant feature and all areas should have fine weather. It could be the warmest day of the week and temperatures in Scotland possibly reach 24C (75F). 

During Thursday and Friday changes takes place. The high pressure centre continues to move northwards and that leads to a cooler northeasterly flow developing across the UK. The risk of showers also increases. Despite that there should be a lot of dry weather.

By the weekend showers become more widespread. In the south east there may be some heavy and thundery as warm air feeds in off the continent.
