The fine and summery weather continues for much of the country again today with temperatures nudging up a touch higher in some areas. However, there will be a couple of exceptions to the generally fine theme.
This morning is starting off with a bit more in the way of misty low cloud across some eastern counties of England and Scotland. This will tend to burn off quite quickly so these eastern regions join much of the rest of the country with a fine and sunny day. However, right on the beaches some of that mist and low cloud may well linger and where it does it will be noticeably cooler. The other exception yet again comes across the far north and northwest of Scotland and the Northern Isles where cloudy skies will prevail, the cloud thick enough to bring some rain and drizzle at times with temperatures held back in the teens. Otherwise it's another very warm or hot day with temperatures across parts of England and Wales reaching highs of 33°C or 34°C, but it will be cooler around coasts where sea breezes develop and also towards Scotland and Northern Ireland where maximums in the mid-high twenties are more likely.
The generally fine and hot theme continues into the weekend for many regions away from northern and eastern coasts where it will be a touch cooler. However, pressure will be falling from the south so by the end of the weekend there is a growing risk of some showers breaking out, perhaps turning heavy and thundery in places but the exact details are still rather uncertain at this stage.
