“Later, high pressure is expected to lie to the east of the UK.

“This likely to bring settled conditions at first, with a good deal of warm, dry weather.

"Frontal zones may bring some rain and low cloud especially in the west, but their remnants are more likely to become a focus for showers as they spread across the country. Some of these potentially heavy and thundery.”
