Pleasantly mild and humid for the rest of today, with a mix of cloud and hazy sunshine. Whilst it will be largely dry for a time this afternoon, heavy thundery downpours breaking out later too, with the midlands, west and northwest seeing most of these. Showers will merge to longer spells of rain locally, causing treacherous driving conditions as well as spot flooding. Temperatures will be above normal, ranging 16 to 20 degrees Celsius (best in the west). Winds will be mostly light easterly, but with sea breezes setting in shortly along western coasts.
