Several major outdoor events are set to take place across the United Kingdom this weekend, including Wimbledon and the Latitude Festival.
The final weekend of Wimbledon will feature a return of warmth along with largely dry weather.
Garbine Muguruza will face off against Venus Williams for the Ladies' Singles final on Saturday, followed by the Gentlemen's Singles final on Sunday afternoon.
"The sky will be often cloudy on Saturday, but it should remain dry to allow for the roof of Centre Court to remain open," AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Dan Pydynowski said.

"It will be rather warm with higher humidity for Saturday's match with temperatures between 22 and 24 C (72 and 75 F)," Pydynowski said.
The higher humidity will hold into Sunday afternoon as temperatures further rise to around 27 C (80 F). The normal high in London in mid-July is 21 C (70 F).
Spectators and players alike will want to apply sun cream and stay well-hydrated, as there will be warm, sunny spells. However, an odd shower threatens to lightly dampen a few parts of London on Sunday afternoon whilst other locations stay dry.
"There will be a small chance for a sprinkle or brief shower later in the match, but the most likely scenario is that the match remains dry and the roof remains open," Pydynowski said.

Farther north, the British Grand Prix will take place at Silverstone, with qualifying on Saturday and the race taking place on Sunday afternoon.
Departing showers on Saturday morning will give way to a largely dry afternoon. An odd shower will cross the area on Sunday afternoon and could briefly dampen the track.
Similar to in London, Saturday will be the cloudier day, followed by sunny spells on Sunday. The weekend will end on a warm and humid note, with temperatures climbing to near 25 C (77 F).

The Royal International Air Tattoo will take place into Sunday at RAF Fairford, featuring daily flying displays and 535 total aircraft.
Whilst the highest opportunity for a shower to pass through will occur on Saturday morning and then again on Sunday afternoon, the bigger concern will be that gusty winds could disrupt some of the flying displays.
Saturday will be the windiest day with gusts to 25 mph (40 km/h) during the midday and afternoon hours.

Henham Park will host Latitude Festival 2017 into Sunday.
Changeable weather is expected this weekend as showery spells around on Saturday morning will clear by the late afternoon and evening music acts.
A warm and humid Sunday will follow with temperatures climbing to around 24 C (76 F).
There will be enough sunny spells for festival-goers to need sun cream. However, umbrellas and wellies should be kept handy as an odd shower is expected to return on Sunday afternoon.
