High pressure in control

Mainly settled and very warm conditions continue on Wednesday in southern and central regions, although an odd shower is possible. In the north thicker cloud may bring some patchy rain.

Thursday is looking fine. Long sunny spells are expected and it will be warm. Even in eastern Scotland 25C (77F) could be reached. It's a similar picture on Friday, although near the east coast it may be cooler.

Guidance from computer models suggests high pressure will hold on through the coming weekend. Subtle changes mean the risk of showers may begin to increase.
