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 love summer because it's the season of blooming flowers, singing birds, clear blue skies, and stunning beaches. It's perfect for outdoor activities like hiking, high ropes challenges, and reef scuba diving. In contrast, I'm not a fan of winter with its thunderstorms, drizzle, and floods, which often put me in a bad mood.

I live in a city with cold weather, I like it except when it gets too rainy. I dislike hot weather, but warm weather is OK. My favorite season is autumn, even tough it is cold, windy and I freeze, I love the colors and the environment.

I like a really wet weather, and enjoy the rain because it let to show everything green, the trees and plants grows, everything is fresh, you can sleep with open windows, the only thing that I hate of the rain here in my city, it’s the thunderstorm, there are a lot of them during the summer and autumn time.I don’t like the hail either, there’s many damage with it

In my country most of the year is summer. we don't know what spring and autumn looks like we just have summer season with very sunny and wet weather or winter with too much dry and rainy weather. actually, when I was In Jeddah maybe I like summer season more than winter, but when I moved to Riyadh I prefer winter season because winter in Riyadh better than summer at this area.
