Improving next week

Friday brings further heavy showers to the north and west. Southern and south eastern England should be drier and brighter.

The weekend looks mixed. A ridge of high pressure starts trying to build over the south with low pressure becoming centred further north. The chance of drier and brighter conditions increases, particularly in the south. Nonetheless there could be further heavy and thundery showers.

Forecast details for next week are uncertain. However, a trend towards drier and warmer weather is expected.
