They said: "Into the weekend conditions will be mostly cool to average with some showers at times, most settled in the north west.

"The first part of the new week likely to see a a mixture of rain or showers move in from the southwest as a more westerly breeze establishes allowing temperatures to recover to around or just above average, feeling warm in sunnier periods outside of showers/heavy showers or thunderstorms, with a more settled spell to the south mid-week possibly spreading to much of the UK, though this likely only for a few days at most before a more showery northwest flow resumes.

"Winds after the weekend will be mostly light to moderate, though gusty conditions near heavy showers and thunderstorms remains likely."
