During Thursday it looks as though a ridge of high pressure will keep it fine and warm across the southern half of the country. The north will be cooler and there is a greater risk of showers. Temperatures in East Anglia and the south east may reach 24C (75F).
Friday could see showery outbreaks of rain becoming more widespread. Nonetheless there could be plenty of warm and sunny periods.
A changeable set-up is favoured for Bank Holiday weekend, however the forecast details are uncertain. Current guidance suggests the Azores high pressure may influence the UK's weather early on. Therefore Saturday could be the pick of the days, at least in the south. On Sunday and Monday all regions could be wet at times.
