Turning much warmer

Wednesday is looking mainly dry and bright. Temperatures will be higher than in recent days and in the south it should feel quite warm.

During Thursday and Friday outbreaks of rain are possible in the north west. Other areas have a lot of dry and sunny weather. It is set to turn much warmer and the last day of the month could see 30C (86F) being exceeded in the south.

Through the weekend cooler air returns southeastwards and there is a risk of heavy showers or thunderstorms for a time. By Sunday showers could become restricted to central and eastern counties as a ridge of high pressure builds in from the west.
