Hot then thundery showers

Wednesday is looking dry and sunny in most of the UK, although scattered showers are likely in southern and central regions. Very warm or hot, with temperatures reaching or possibly exceeding 31C (88F).

The fine weather probably continues in most of the UK on Thursday. Scattered showers continue to be a risk, but long sunny periods mean temperatures once again could exceed 30C (86F). 

During the rest of the week the risk of thundery showers increases. Later on downpours or longer spells of rain could become more widespread and it probably turns cooler.
