“And that’s how we really started on Sunday morning, gray with a few spurts of rain in the south.

“Some showers are coming to the southwest of Scotland.

“But with this hot, stuffy air, we’re going to see more rain start coming in from the south once again during the night period.

“And again, we will see a thunderstorm risk for many parts of the south of the country.”

Met Office Chief Meteorologist Andy Page said: “The cloud of warm air we expect from the south will bring higher temperatures across the country next week.

“However, it appears that the effects of the Atlantic lows will prevent sustained construction of high pressure from the east.
