UK weather: Brits to bask in 27C sun today before muggy weekend with thunderstorms and showers for many | The Sun

BRITS are set to bask in 27C sun – before a muggy weekend with thunderstorms and showers for many.

Temperatures are forecast to remain high today, with much of Scotland and England enjoying another day of "glorious" sunshine.

The Met Office predicts the mercury could reach 27C on the south coast and in the Midlands.

Forecaster Jonathon Vautrey said: "Temperatures in that sunshine will be responding, climbing to highs of 27C, 28C possible in a few places as well."

A refreshing sea breeze will develop in eastern coastal areas, with bands of showers bringing relief to worried gardeners in Wales and south west England.

Overnight, the western showers will push across north west England and western Scotland.

Skies across the UK will have turned cloudier by Saturday morning – with temperatures falling to single figures in some areas during the night.

But Jonathon added: "Wrapped up in all these showers and the cloud that is pushing into the west is a lot more humid air.

"That's going to make it feel potentially quite muggy and sticky once again as we start off Saturday morning."

There will be rainfall in Northern Ireland and Wales throughout Saturday – with even a chance of lightning and large hailstones during short, intense downpours.

Elsewhere the fine weather will continue, with the sun burning through the wispy cloud in eastern England and Scotland.

Temperatures will still be high across much of the country, with 25C predicted for the Midlands and 26C for London.

But in rain-soaked Northern Ireland the mercury could sink to just 19C.

The humidity will make for tossing and turning on Saturday night, ahead of scattered thunderstorms on Sunday.

Met Office experts have issued a yellow warning for thunderstorms across England and Wales throughout Sunday.

30mm of rain is expected to fall in one hour, with hail, strong winds and lightning also forecast.

But not all areas will see the storms, with the week of sun continuing for many.

In spite of the storms, temperatures could reach as high as 28C in Birmingham, 27C in London and 25C across much of the country.
