More changeable later

During Thursday morning a band of showery rain spreads northeastwards and thunderstorms are possible in places. Drier and brighter conditions follow it. In the south east it remains very warm. 

Friday is looking dry across England and Wales with variable amounts of cloud. Temperatures won't be as high as they have been recently but it will still feel warm in the sun. Scotland and Northern Ireland have rain and strong winds.

Through the weekend a changeable theme is expected. Outbreaks of rain are likely in the north and west on Saturday. They could push into southern and eastern counties at times. By Sunday high pressure should be building back across the south so the risk of rain becomes increasingly restricted to the north.
