Another warm and mainly dry day in store for much of East Anglia and southeast England today with temperatures into the mid-twenties so not quite as warm as recently but still feeling rather muggy. This is the exception though with many regions seeing cooler temperatures and a greater risk of showers or longer spells of rain today, some of these heavy and thundery.
The wettest of the weather this morning can be found across central and eastern regions of Scotland where spells of thundery rain will continue for a while before slowly dying out and pulling away to the east today. Meanwhile, heavy showers with thunder in places have also moved into the southwest of the UK and these showers will break out more widely across parts of England and Wales today. Not everywhere will catch them with many places staying dry, but where they do occur some torrential downpours are possible bringing the risk of localised flash flooding, particularly in those areas where little rain has fallen over the last couple of months or so.
This leaves western and north-western Scotland along with much of Ireland and the Republic of Ireland with a mainly dry and bright day in a northerly breeze, a breeze that is introducing fresher conditions with temperatures here in the high teens at best. Elsewhere and the low twenties can be expected away from East Anglia and the southeast of England, still feeling quite warm in any sunshine.
Showers will linger on well into the evening in places before tending to die out overnight, but some will continue across parts of England and Wales throughout the night. To the north and west it will be drier and cooler but a mostly fine day follows here tomorrow whilst further heavy showers and scattered thunderstorms affect some southern and south-eastern regions of England.
