What is the weather like in the UK?
Just when we thought the heatwave was finally ahead of us, it looks like there will be quite a few rainy interruptions across the country.
On a warm, balmy morning for a lot of 13C to 15C, there will be a slightly wetter feeling today.
There could be light rain early in southern and central England, but that won’t last long.
Northern Ireland can expect to start the morning with cloudy and dry weather, but rain will dominate the rest of the day.
Northern Ireland and northern UK will be affected by showers and thunderstorms most of the afternoon, according to the Met Office.
However, it won’t be a cold afternoon. The temperature is expected to rise to 18C to 20C in these areas.
The rest of the UK will continue to experience warmer temperatures, with a maximum temperature of 24C.
If you are in Wales or Cornwall for the afternoon, make sure you apply enough sunscreen with a high SPF as it will be a mostly sunny day in those spots.
Northern parts of the country remain fairly cold and windy as thunderstorms persist, with a low of 13C.
The rest of the country will experience a hotter and drier night, with Norwich and London set to stay at 19 ° C.
Weather across the country is expected to remain relatively unchanged overnight through Friday morning.
