Another glorious day in Deeside today, the steady high pressure is treating us to fine sunny weather with a gentle breeze, perfect! ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Thursday saw Hawarden top the UK temperatures chart for a period hitting 28ºC. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Thursday at 4pm

Friday is shaping up to be even warmer, by 11am temperatures were nearly 2ºC warmer than the same time yesterday. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Overnight will be much the same as Thursday, dry, warm and very muggy quite uncomfortable for some. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Things will change on Saturday, the Met Office has issued a yellow warning for rain. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Forecasters say there will be clusters of heavy and thundery showers over the UK with Wales and NW England expected to see some significant downpours in the afternoon and evening. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

There is the potential to for localised flooding, hail and frequent lightning they say. 🙁 ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Chief Forecaster’s assessment

Skies will brighten following a band of showery rain, though rising temperatures will cause heavy showers to develop. Whilst many will miss the worst, some places could see 20-30 mm in an hour or less. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The risk of this looks slightly higher across Scotland than across England or Northern Ireland. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
