Remaining showers should die away to leave a largely dry but rather cloudy night in light winds. Some clear spells should develop towards dawn, mainly in the east. Minimum temperature 11 °C.

Although on the cloudy side at times, a brighter and warmer day than on Thursday. Staying mainly dry, with sunny intervals perhaps allowing a few further heavy showers to develop. Maximum temperature 24 °C.

Updated: 02:02 on Thu 29 Jun 2017 BST

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Outbreaks of rain for many today.

Today:

Rain across northern, western and some central parts today, gradually inching northwestwards through the day, allowing more in the way of drier interludes for some later. Further south and east, cloudy skies with some heavy showers possible. Windy for many.

Tonight:

Staying windy in the north and west overnight, with outbreaks of rain continuing throughout the night. Remaining rather cloudy elsewhere with further patchy rain for some central parts.

Friday:

Patchy rain slowly returning southeastwards across northern and western parts through Friday. Some brighter spells elsewhere, although some occasionally heavy, possibly thundery, showers developing too.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

Rain clearing southeastern areas Saturday morning. Many places then having reasonable dry spells with some sunshine. More changeable further north, where windy at times. Warmer than recently in the northeast.

Updated: 01:06 on Thu 29 Jun 2017 BST

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Monday 3 Jul 2017 to Wednesday 12 Jul 2017:

Next week should get off to a dry start for much of the UK, though some rain may spread in from the southwest and there is a low risk of thundery outbreaks towards the southeast by mid-week. Thereafter there is some uncertainty but at the moment it looks set to turn more changeable, especially across northwestern parts where some wet and windy weather is likely. Towards the south and east it should be drier and brighter though there is still the risk of thundery rain at times here. Temperatures will remain generally around average for the time of year, but there is an increasing chance of a very warm spell, most likely towards the southeast.

UK Outlook for Thursday 13 Jul 2017 to Thursday 27 Jul 2017:

Further changeable weather is likely at first, especially in the north with some rain. In the south the drier and warmer spells are likely to become more prevalent, and these could well spread across the rest of the UK through much of July.
