Wednesday looks fine in much of the UK as a ridge of high pressure builds. The exceptions are northern Scotland where there is the risk of rain and the north east where isolated showers are possible. It will be warm, especially in the south.
During Thursday showery rain and cooler conditions begin to push in from the west. Central and eastern Britain probably stay dry and warm, although cloud could build. Temperatures in East Anglia and the south east may reach 24C (75F).
A changeable set-up is favoured for Friday and the Bank Holiday weekend. Showery rain is possible at times, especially in the north. However computer model runs are increasingly showing the Azores high pressure having more influence on the UK 's weather. That suggests the south west, and perhaps the south more generally, may often be dry and bright.
