Nick Finnis at Netweather said: “The weather will remain changeable across northern areas for the rest of the week, with a risk of showers towards the west today and tomorrow, followed on Friday by a spell of wet and windy weather.
“Southern areas will see a band of cloud and patchy mainly light rain pass through today, but for the rest of the week it’s looking mostly dry and bright, but joining northern areas in turning cooler and fresher after today.
“The weekend will remain unsettled across the north, will spells of wet and windy weather, particularly later on Saturday and overnight into Sunday morning.
“Southern areas remaining dry and bright, increasingly warm and sunny on Sunday, as high pressure builds. Warmer still early next week, as southerly flow develops, temperatures perhaps reaching the mid to high 20s Celsius across southern areas, perhaps 30C in the southeast.
“So a late taste of summer returning for some.”
The hot weather arrived yesterday as south areas including Cambridge were hit with highs of 26C.
