Temperatures rising

Wednesday brings variable amounts of cloud and sunny spells to much of the country. Further isolated showers are possible across the southern half of the UK but most places should stay dry. The highest temperatures will be in the south and west.

During the second half of the week it warms up further as winds turn into more of a southeasterly direction. Temperatures in southern and central areas may pip 30C (86F) but in eastern coastal counties it remains cooler. There is a risk of thundery rain in the north and west. 

Through the weekend cooler air is forecast to gradually spread eastwards across the whole of the country. That could lead to showers becoming more widespread for a time. Ahead of it there will be further very warm or hot spells of sunshine. The cooler and fresher weather continues in early July.
