“Becoming a little more cloudy later, but still with sunny spells.”

Tuesday promises another dry and fine day, with lengthy sunny spells.

It will still be warm or very warm, but cooler than Monday, the Met Office said.

Temperatures will peak at around 22C.

Wednesday will be a dry and warm day with plenty of sunshine throughout and temperatures of around 23C.

However on Wednesday night, an area of heavy rain will move in from the south, bringing some thunder and lightning too.

The rain will turn patchier through Thursday, but will likely linger for much of the day, according to the BBC forecast.

Friday will be cloudier with scattered light showers throughout.
