Temperatures rise later this week, but so does the risk of thundery showers. It's possible that 30C (86F) could be reached in the UK for the first time this summer. However, forecast details are uncertain and much depends on the balance between sunny periods and showers.(If you would like to browse the website without adverts until the end of the year and contribute to its ongoing development you can do so by making a donation of £15 or more via PayPal, see below)

Wednesday starts mostly dry. However, there is a lot of cloud in the eastern half of Britain and locally it is bringing an odd spot of rain.

Through the day it remains cloudy in the north east, but in other areas sunny spells develop widely. The best of them will be in the west where they are likely to be prolonged.

Temperatures range from 13C (55F) near the east coast to 25C (77F) in the south. See the rain radar for the latest view.

The headline is for a warmer than average summer. Rainfall amounts are expected to vary significantly across the UK, but despite the dry start a slightly wetter than average season is favoured. Read the seasonal forecast in full.

UK Met Office UKV, rain and cloud, 15:00 Wednesday, 7th June

Tonight it will be dry. However, cloudier skies push westwards once more.

Tomorrow brings a repeat performance. The brightest and warmest conditions continue to be in the south and west. Eastern and north eastern counties have quite a lot of cloud, but there should be bright spells too. Temperatures perhaps a degree or two higher than today's.

Thundery showers

Friday may be the warmest day of the year so far, with temperatures reaching 29C (84F) locally in the south. Computer models are now suggesting it will stay dry.

During Saturday thundery showers probably develop in southern and central counties. They are expected to be localised, but there is a possibility of downpours in places. The north has a dry and bright day. Very warm or hot in the south.

Sunday may be quite mixed. In southern England, Wales and Northern Ireland thundery showers remain a risk. There could also be showers in northern Scotland for a time. Elsewhere it should stay dry, bright and very warm or hot. There is a chance of 30C (86F) being reached in central or eastern England.

Forecast details for early part of next week are subject to change. Thundery showers may continue, but there should be a good deal of warm or very warm spells of sunshine.
