With high pressure weakening, a shallow, thundery low from France is tracking towards our region. The day will start just like the previous day, pleasant and calm. In the afternoon, though, it will become increasingly muggy with cumulus clouds thickening to give thunderstorms before the evening.
Until Friday, sunny spells will alternate with thunderstorms in the afternoon and the evening.
