Temperatures climb above 30C (86F) in parts of the UK today as the heatwave conditions continue. However, there is a change on the way as an area of low pressure begins to approach from the southwest. It brings the risk of thundery downpours to southern and central Britain this weekend.

14 day weather forecast
Issued 20th July 2021
Tomorrow will be fine in most of the UK. The warmest conditions will be in the west, but temperatures generally won't be as high as in recent days. Through the evening and night thundery downpours push up from the southwest.
During Saturday heavy and thundery downpours push northwards across southern and central regions. The north has another dry and warm day.
Sunday is looking mixed. Scotland and Northern Ireland will be warm with scattered showers and sunny periods. England and Wales have heavy showers, but also some bright spells.
Changeable weather continues through the first half of next week. All regions could have showers and later on there is a risk of more prolonged outbreaks of rain pushing in from the Atlantic. In sunny spells it will be warm, but temperatures generally won't be far from the average.
