Hello and good morning! Well, we're off to a good start in the south this week, as most of the rain from the weekend has disappeared – just a few patches of cloud and maybe some showers here on the east coast. They'll all clear up by lunchtime, though. Over the next day or so, London and the area around Kent can expect a couple of isolated showers, but mostly dry through until Thursday.

It's not such good news for the north-west this week, I'm afraid: more wet weather, and not a lot of sunshine. Some of today's showers will be heavy – and even thundery in Manchester and across the Pennines. Leeds will escape the thunderstorms, with drizzle and light rain only throughout the rest of the day and tonight.

Elsewhere it becomes dry today, but with some foggy patches towards Wales. In England, tomorrow morning will see a dry, bright start in most places, with high temperatures throughout the week. We might see one or two thunderstorms appearing as the week goes on, with temperatures everywhere at 29 to 30 degrees. 

By the weekend, unfortunately, the dry weather will make way for mostly cloudy skies and rain. The rain will move from Scotland, down towards the north and reach the south coast by Saturday afternoon. Temperatures, at least, will stay mostly warm at around 21 degrees for the weekend. It might feel like a nice change from the high twenties and early thirties we'll see in the week. That's all from me until tomorrow. Enjoy the mini-heatwave while you can!

I like dry weather but I do not like when it is heatwave or hotter than normal. Also, sometimes I like when it is snowing, but I never wish that it is rainy. Generally, I like sunny weather with light wind.

My favorite weather is the weather of my city Puyo, from the ecuadorian Amazon. In the same day, you can have a lot of sun for a while and then a strong rain. But never the temperatures fall down until the people freeze or rise until the people feels that are living in the hell. We have all in the same day. It's fantastic !!!

I hate high and low temperatures. I like weather when temperature is around the early twenties. I don't like windy days. I like watching light rain or snow from the window. This gives me a good feelings.
