Change this weekend

Friday looks dry and sunny across the UK. Winds will be turning into a south or southeasterly direction so daytime temperatures widely rise into the low to mid 20Cs.

This weekend disturbances from the Atlantic return and bring more unsettled conditions. Through Saturday patchy rain spreads into western England and Wales. Central and eastern areas should be dry and very warm. Temperatures could reach 27C (81F).   

During Sunday showery rain pushes eastwards with some heavy bursts in the north and west. Central and south eastern England could have warm sunny spells and be dry for much of the day.  

Early next week changeable weather probably becomes established across all regions. After a warm start in the south east temperatures return to the seasonal norm.
