Showery outlook

On Saturday showers become widespread. In central and north areas some heavy bursts of rain are likely. Southern counties probably have the best of the brighter periods, although isolated thundery showers are possible in the south east. The south has quite a warm day but the north will be cooler than recently. 

The risk of showers continues on Sunday. The highest temperatures are again likely to be in the south east.

During the first half of of next week the mixed weather continues. Further showers are expected and in the south they could be thundery. Despite that warm spells of sunshine are also likely.
