It will stay dry tonight with mostly clear skies. However, the easterly wind will strengthen, becoming gusty to the west of high ground in Devon and Cornwall. It could also be an uncomfortable night's sleep, especially in the west. Minimum temperature 11 °C.
The strong gusty winds will continue but there will be plenty of very warm sunshine. Maximum temperature 28 °C.
Outlook for Friday to Sunday:
Winds easing through Friday, with hot sunshine for most. Starting to become cooler from the west on Saturday, with very warm temperatures in the east. Cooler and breezier on Sunday.
UK long range weather forecast
By Monday, fresher and less warm weather will spread to all areas. The north of the UK will probably be rather wet and windy but southern parts are likely to be drier. Winds and rain will probably ease on Tuesday and Wednesday, apart from the far south, where it may become more breezy for at time. Most of the UK is likely to have some warm sunshine on those days, though it is not expected to be as warm as this week. Over the following days, the most likely scenario is for mainly dry, bright and warm weather to continue though there is no special signal for particularly hot temperatures. Early morning mist or short-lived wetter and windier weather are also likely at times.
Dry, bright and often warm weather is the most likely scenario for the first few days of this period, though some wind and rain is likely at times. This could well continue later into July, perhaps with some hot weather spreading from the continent at times. However, the situation is very uncertain by then. If blocked high pressure were to be displaced significantly to the west or the east of the UK, we could end up with some changeable weather with significant rainfall at times.
