Another warm and humid start to the day across many parts of the country with south-westerly winds dominating but we will see some changes during the next 24 hours or so as a weak cold front sweeps south-eastwards to bring somewhat cooler and fresher air down from the northwest.
Temperatures this morning are widely starting off in the mid-high teens thanks to a lot of cloud cover, that cloud thick enough to bring some patchy rain and drizzle, especially towards southwest England along with northwest Scotland and northwest Ireland, the rain heavier and more persistent over higher ground. Skies will tend to brighten in many areas as we move on through the day with the rain in the southwest and northwest tending to turn more showery as it pushes a little further east and southeast. By the end of the afternoon the showers will mainly be distributed across more northern and western regions but even here many places will miss them and stay dry.
It will be another warm or very warm day with temperatures towards the southeast of England in the range of a muggy 27°C to 29°C. It will be cooler the further north and west that you are, with the far northwest seeing a rather cool day with maximums around 15°C or 16°C
Some showers will continue to affect parts of the north and northwest tonight and into tomorrow but the main change will be a drop in temperature and humidity levels as some cooler air moves down from the northwest. Indeed, temperatures in sheltered and rural northern regions will drop back down into single figures tonight and although the southeast will remain warmer, even here tomorrow will be less warm than recent days but still dry.
