“So today once again you can expect some heavy thundery showers, especially across western Scotland.
“But some of those will be getting in across Northern Ireland and parts of Wales, and into Northern England as well.
“South of that, some sunshine but still a fair bit of cloud around at times.
“But when the cloud thins and breaks and the sun comes out, well the temperatures will get up to about 23 degrees.”
