Temperatures range from 15C (59F) in the far north west to a very warm 26C (78F) in the south east.

High pressure in control

Thursday is looking fine. Warms sunny periods are expected and even in eastern Scotland 25C (77F) could be reached. It's a similar picture on Friday, although along the east coast it may be cooler.

High pressure should bring a lot of fine and warm weather this weekend. Subtle changes mean the risk of showers may begin to increase.

Early next week there are signs of low pressure starting to push up from the southwest. It leads to an increasing chance of showers in southern counties, but at the moment forecast confidence is low.
