The weak area of high pressure which dominated our weather on Friday will remain stationary on Saturday. We will see a mixture of sunshine, occasional clouds and summer-like temperatures: Thunderstorms will be possible.
Sunday, Monday and Tuesday will temporarily bring unbstable weather. From Wednesday we can look forward to perfect weather: it will be sunny with temperatures still rising. Until Friday, we will only see little change.
