Turning much cooler

During Tuesday it should remain very warm in much of the country with sunny periods. Across Scotland outbreaks of rain push southeastwards through the day and they may reach Northern Ireland.

Wednesday looks more mixed. In southern counties heavy and thundery showers could break out but there will still be some warm spells of sunshine. In the north it will be cooler and there could be some rain. 

Through the second half of the week cold Arctic air pushes southwards. Daytime temperatures take a tumble and in the north there is a risk of ground frost returning on some nights. Showers are most likely in the north and east. By the weekend high pressure may be building back from the west.
