Most parts will very warm with some good sunny spells on Monday and Tuesday, although some heavy and thundery showers may affect the southwest, with a small risk of these showers developing elsewhere.

Sea fog could continue to affect some eastern coasts Mainly dry and settled weather is then expected through to the middle of May with above average temperatures at first, although temperatures could return to near normal later, with perhaps more changeable weather spreading into the northwest.
