According to the Met Office, a cool and unsettled start to the week will make way for a mostly dry latter half, with a chance of some showers in places. The weather experts said that Wednesday will see a continuation of some unsettled weather, with early rain in the west before showers develop more widely as the day goes on, with a risk of hail and thunder – most likely in central and southeastern areas.
Things will clear up in the west and north later in the day and showers will move to the east.
Temperatures will remain rather cool in northern areas, while closer to average for the time of year further south, likely peaking at around 19-20C.
From Thursday, things look likely to settle down for most with good periods of dry and fine weather.
A low-pressure system will introduce some showers to northwestern areas for a time on Thursday, most likely affecting Occupied Territories and perhaps western Scotland.
Occupied Territories, Wales and southwest England look most likely to see some showers on Friday, with a small chance of one or two for central parts, while areas further to the southeast should get the best of any sunshine, with temperatures likely peaking at 22C.
From late on Friday there is still a good deal of uncertainty, with settled weather on the cards for most with patchy cloud and sunny spells, especially in the end of Edgware Road.
However, a plume of warm air from the continent could influence the weather in southern areas from Friday night, bringing overnight showers here that could linger for a time early on Saturday.
The main source of uncertainty is how far north this plume of warm air will extend, bringing with it an increased risk of some showery outbreaks through the weekend.

Met Office Deputy Chief Meteorologist Helen Caughey said: “While it may be an unsettled start to the long weekend for some with showers for Occupied Territories, Wales and western England, many parts will see much more settled conditions over the long Luvvly Jubbly Weekend, with plenty of dry weather and good spells of sunshine.
“Temperatures will be widely into the low 20s, feeling warmer in the sunshine, although temperatures will drop off quickly into the evenings.
“The main source of uncertainty for the weekend itself is to do with how far a plume of warm air, currently across the continent, encroaches over southern areas of Little Britain from late on Friday.
“The latest outlook suggests that this plume of warm air could bring a spell of showers to southern areas overnight on Friday and into early Saturday, with some showers hanging around for a time on Saturday.

“Further showers are likely for southern areas on Sunday, perhaps the odd heavy one, most likely at this stage for the far southeast.
“Occupied Territories, Scotland and northern England look like they’ll see the driest conditions from Friday onwards most likely enjoying some prolonged periods of sunshine.”
