Showery north. Largely fine south. Rain for many on Friday.
Starting cloudy across southeast England with isolated showers, these perhaps turning heavy and thundery through the afternoon. Elsewhere, across Wales, central and southern England it will be fine. Sunshine and heavy showers across Scotland and Northern Ireland. Fresher for most.
Except from the far northwest, showers will ease leaving a largely dry and clear night. However, outbreaks of rain will spread into Wales and southwest England through the early hours.
Pulses of heavy rain and stronger winds will affect many places. The risk of thunder through central parts and rain potentially turning heavy and persistent in south England later.
Outlook for Saturday to Monday:
Sunny spells and thundery showers on Saturday. Drier for many on Sunday and Monday, but windy in the west with rain in the northwest. Turning increasingly warm and humid.
