Changeable and cool

Friday brings a mix of sunny spells and showers to central and northern parts of the UK. In the south there is a risk of more persistent outbreaks of rain spreading eastwards. Temperatures remain on the low side for late July.

During Saturday the greatest risk of showers will probably be in central and eastern England where it could remain overcast for much of the day. In the north and west there should be longer dry and bright periods.

A ridge of high pressure could bring mainly dry conditions on Sunday to much of the north and west. In central and eastern England the risk of showers remains.

Early next week the changeable theme continues. All regions could have showers or more prolonged outbreaks of rain. Southern counties are expected to have the warmest and driest conditions.
