Mild weather will continue across the United Kingdom into Thursday before wet and windy conditions arrive from Friday into the weekend.
It will feel more like April across the U.K. into Thursday while high pressure provides dry weather to many areas.
High temperatures will reach or exceed 15 degrees Celsius (59 degrees Fahrenheit) in many communities across England again on Thursday. Places across the north and west will be the exception as cooler air flows in from the Irish and Celtic seas.
The warmth will hold in most areas on Thursday although Scotland, Northern Ireland and the north of England will begin to feel the arrival of cooler air.
Blustery showers will accompany the cooler air as it spreads over the northern U.K.
Cooler air will be felt throughout the U.K. on Friday as rain falls on Northern Ireland, Wales, Northern England and southern Scotland.
"The rain will elevate the threat for flooding in Northern Ireland, northern Wales and northwest England," said AccuWeather Meteorologist Tyler Roys.
The first raindrops will reach Greater London during the late afternoon and continue into Friday night as it becomes a steady rain.
Frequent wind gusts over 30 mph (48 km/h) will accompany the rain and could result in a slower evening commute.

Blustery showers and spells of rain are expected this weekend as unsettled weather continues across the U.K.
While the weekend will not be a washout, anyone with outdoor plans will want to be prepared with jackets and wellies.
Temperatures will be several degrees above normal both Saturday and Sunday; however, the combination of thick cloud, wind and rain will make it feel much colder than the recent warm spell.
The threat for showers will likely continue into early next week.
