Final 24C sunshine to melt Brits today before gloomy thunderstorms sweep in

The sun looks set to return to large parts of the UK today as cloud coverage moves on eastward, but the scorching temperatures from the start of this week won't be making a comeback.

The sunny spells will grace much of southern and central England as well as parts of Wales on Saturday afternoon, with East Anglia set to be the warmest area at around 24C.

London and the midlands should reach temperatures of around 22C to 23C, but further northward the picture isn't so pretty.

Parts of northern England, Northern Ireland, and Scotland will be waking up to gloomy rain.

Although scattered showers may persist elsewhere throughout the day, Scotland looks to be particularly afflicted with temperatures remaining around 17C.

"It's across northern Scotland where it's a particularly grey and damp start to the day," said Met Office meteorologist Aidan McGivern.

"The rest of Scotland turning a little dryer and brighter, a lot of cloud about though, and for Northern Ireland, southern Scotland and northern England some showers break out by the afternoon.

"But overall fewer showers, and where they do occur they'll be less heavy compared to recent days."

Heading into Sunday, the night looks set to be slightly chillier with cloud breaks causing temperatures to drop into the low teens right across the UK.

As one area of low pressures moves eastward, another pushes an unappealing weather system in from the Atlantic as Sunday progresses.

McGivern said: "For most it's a dry start to Sunday, with some sunshine for Wales, the Midlands, East Anglia and the south of England.

"Certainly a dryer and brighter day for northern and western Scotland but still some showers around.

"And there'll be further showers for south Scotland, northern England and even for Norfolk at times."

London looks set to be the warmest place on Sunday at 21C, with temperatures hovering around 20C for the rest of England. Glasgow and Aberdeen are set to be stuck at around 14C to 15C, just topped by Belfast at 16C.

By the end of the day, Wales will be getting increasingly wet as the new weather system moves in.

As we go into next week, this rain and cloud looks set to move across the country making this week's weather seem like a distant memory. Thunderstorms look likely for Tuesday in some parts.
