Looking ahead

The Met Office says of the weather from Sunday June 13 to Tuesday June 22:

"High pressure across the majority of the UK looks to bring a lot of dry and settled weather at first.

"Temperatures are expected to be very warm under the high, perhaps hot for a time in the south east, but look to remain average in the far north.

"Into the latter half of this period, there are signs that less settled conditions could push in from the north west to other parts of the country."
