Tomorrow morning an area of rain could push across areas south of London. In the afternoon heavy showers are likely to develop in the south west and Wales. Other areas remain dry. In sunny spells it will be warm.

Showers but warm sunshine too

Sunday brings fine weather to much of the UK, but scattered showers are likely, particularly in the north west. Warm, although near to the east coast it could stay cooler and cloudier.

Showers may become more widespread in southern and central regions on Monday. The northern half of the UK has a mostly fine day, although isolated showers will bubble up. Temperatures similar to recent days.

Forecast details for Tuesday are uncertain, but the same general theme probably continues. Therefore, warm sunny spells develop, but there could be heavy showers in England and Wales.
