Cooling at the weekend

Southern and central regions will be fine and warm on Friday. Temperatures could reach 28C (82F). The north has more cloud and showery rain. 

During Saturday patchy rain and cloud push southwards . There will be sunny spells too and despite temperatures being lower it still feels pleasantly warm in the bright areas. Sunday brings a mix of sunny spells and scattered showers with a chance of an odd heavy one. 

Next week the risk of showery rain increases a little, although the focus is expected to remain on quite settled weather. Temperatures stay close to the average.
