A complex low, centred to the west of the British Isles looks set to be the dominant feature of this week’s weather.
A succession of fronts will bring an initial, thundery breakdown in the recent hot spell, with other frontal systems maintaining an unsettled look to the period.
As a westerly airflow becomes established, so showers or longer spells of rain will affect northern and western areas, with the best of any drier and brighter spells to be found in the south and east.
There will be high temperatures this week across the Midlands. East Anglia and the southeast of England could reach 30C but there will be a general decline in all areas, most marked in Northern Ireland.
