Widely very warm or hot in the south and southeast, with warm and humid nights, whilst western areas may turn cooler. Through the rest of the period there'll be plenty of fine weather, but occasional rain in the west may spread to other parts at times, and there's an ongoing risk of thunderstorms, particularly across central and southeast England. Temperatures generally very warm away from the west, with hot or very hot conditions at times, especially in the southeast.
