Thursday starts with patchy rain in the far north west. Elsewhere it is dry.

Through the day thundery showers develop in in southern and central counties. In places downpours could lead to flash flooding; however, many places will miss them. Areas to the north have sunny spells and rain in the far north west becomes more showery.   

Temperatures range from 16C (61F) to 28C (82F). The highest values will probably be in central and northern England, with cloud keeping it cooler in much of the south. See the rain radar for the latest view.

Cooler and more changeable

During Saturday the driest conditions are likely to be in eastern counties. Elsewhere there will be showers and later on more persistent spells of rain may push into the south west. Temperatures close to the average in the east, but rather cool in other areas.

Sunday brings heavy showery bursts of rain to much of England and Wales, although in the south eastern corner and East Anglia it could stay mainly dry. Scotland and Northern Ireland also have showers. Quite windy in the south and cool in wet areas.

The mixed theme continues on Monday. Showers or longer spells of rain are possible and temperatures will be on the low side.
