High pressure is still sitting over Scandinavia but has weakened it's grip over the UK enough to allow low pressure to the southwest to edge closer bringing some heavy, thundery showers to southern and south-western parts. During the weekend a new high pressure cell will push in from the west bringing clearer and fresher conditions with it to most parts, pushing the thundery showers in the south away as well as clearing a lot of the mist and murk which has plagued some areas for several days now.

So for this morning it's another dull start to the day with low cloud, mist and fog patches quite widespread again this morning, and the cloud is thick enough to bring some drizzle in places too, especially across central and eastern parts of England and Scotland. Meanwhile across southern and south-western parts of England and Wales along with the Channel Islands there are some heavy, thundery showers around bringing some localised downpours. On the whole many areas will brighten up this morning and some warm sunny spells will develop by this afternoon but further scattered heavy thundery downpours are likely across central and southern parts of England. However, as is always the case in this type of set-up, some areas will miss out on the showers whilst others see a soaking. Meanwhile along some eastern coastal regions of both England and Scotland it is once again likely to remain rather dull, misty and overcast with some more light rain or drizzle at times and here temperatures will be in the mid-high teens. However in the brighter and sunnier areas maximums of 20°C to 23°C are quite likely, whilst winds will be light, mostly coming in from the east or southeast.
Tonight will see most places turning rather cloudy again with low cloud, mist and fog patches developing again whilst there is a continued risk of some thundery showers affecting parts of southern England and Wales. Tomorrow will see some changes as winds begin to turn more into a northerly direction which will draw down cooler and fresher air but it will become sunnier too with the showers gradually clearing away from southern regions.
