Less warm from the west across Scotland on Saturday, and bursts of rain and possibly thunder will develop. Only isolated if any rain before dark England and Wales. Cooler next week, particularly from mid-week. Through the week, occasional showers or rain, but often dry, although there may well be a deterioration to windier wetter weather by the end of next week across Scotland.
