Much of Tuesday morning though will be mainly dry with some bright or sunny spells, especially across England and Wales and despite the fresh feel to the weather it will become pleasantly warm.
Through the afternoon and England and Wales should remain mainly dry with some bright or sunny spells despite increasing cloud from the west. Scotland and Ireland though will become far more unsettled, from the west, with a fresh SW'ly wind developing along with some widespread light or moderate, locally heavy rain.
Wet and rather windy conditions will dominate the weather through Tuesday evening and overnight across much of N England, Scotland and Ireland with further heavy rain at times as well.

Tuesday 26/06/18 At the moment high pressure is set to remain the dominant feature across many areas, again continuing to extend up into the UK from the south-west. The exception to this could be northern areas of Scotland where it could still be cooler and cloudier. Overall though much of the UK should be mainly dry and settled by with some bright or sunny spells. Temperatures warm or perhaps very warm for most, especially across England and Wales.

Wednesday 27/06/18 Little change still by next Wednesday with a strong signal for high pressure to continue to dominate the weather across many areas with bright or sunny spells and variable cloud. By this point it is expected that much of the UK will be very warm, but especially across inland areas of England and Wales, low risk of hot weather. Highs 17C to 26C.
*July* Current ideas are for conditions become more settled in July. It is likely to be warm or even very warm on some days. Dry weather dominates after a mixed start. Thunderstorms developing on some days. *August* Starts warm or very warm and dry although the risk of thunderstorms. Analogues have consistently shown the potential for a more unsettled month. Ex-hurricanes may affect the UK and Ireland especially in the middle to later stages of the month. hese would bring periods of heavy rain and strong winds. Simon Keeling
Unsettled weather dominates across more northern areas, drier further south where very warm and humid. Tuesday Into Tuesday and unsettled conditions will dominate across much of northern Europe with some rain and drizzle developing across northern areas of the UK but it is across Norway, Sweden and Finland in particular where very wet and very windy weather will dominate as low pressure dominates the weather. In complete contrast will be across much of central, southern and eastern areas of Europe where high pressure will dominate. Fine weather and very warm weather with plenty of sunshine extends across France, into Germany and eastwards to Poland and other eastern areas of Europe. Equally, similar weather dominates across Iberia and also eastwards throughout much of the Med. A few heavy and thundery showers may develop in places, but away from northern Europe a fine day is forecast.
Wednesday During Wednesday and little change is predicted with further low pressure dominated conditions across most of the UK and up into Scandinavia where it will remain particularly wet and windy. A greater risk of some thunderstorms is possible across Spain and Portugal on Wednesday, than compared with Tuesday, but, otherwise much of mainland Europe will maintain mainly dry and settled conditions with plenty of sunshine and it will also remain very warm and humid too, if not rather hot in places.
