Temperatures in central and eastern England will be higher than they have been for a good while, with 21C (70F) possible in one or two places this afternoon. However, the rather unsettled conditions continue with much of the UK having showers or longer spells of rain. The mixed theme continues through the coming week and it turns cooler again.
