A few days of warmer, nearly rain-free lie ahead for most of the United Kingdom.
Day-to-day warming and a virtual lack of rain will hold until Thursday in the East and South of England, as well as the Midland. Even much of Scotland and the English North will have mainly dry weather at this time.
The likely warmest day, Thursday, will have highs of 23 C to 25 C from London to Birmingham.
The warming and dry air comes on the heels of recent rains, which in London ended on Monday. The high temperature for the day at Heathrow was 18.4 C, or about 2 C below normal.
High pressure affording the warming trend will likely yield late in the week to vigorous Atlantic low pressure, leading to potential rainy outbreaks on Friday.
