Saturday starts with heavy showers in parts of southern Britain but elsewhere it is dry. Through the day bursts of thundery rain continue to be a risk in the south and the Midlands. They bring the possibility of disruption in places, but rain amounts are likely to vary a lot over relatively short distances. To the north it stays dry, sunny and very warm.

Temperatures range from 21C (70F) in the south to 28C (82F) in the north west. See the rain and lightning radar for the latest view.

Changeable outlook

Monday brings sunny spells and thundery showers. Generally warm or very warm with temperatures possibly reaching 29C (84F) locally.

During Tuesday heavy showers push eastwards and at times they may merge to produce longer spells of rain. Brighter conditions return to the west in the afternoon. Feeling much cooler generally.

Changeable weather continues through Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. All regions could have showers or more prolonged outbreaks of rain. In sunny spells it will be warm, but temperatures generally won't be far from the average.
