Temperatures will hold near or just below normal for much of the United Kingdom, with showery spells to end the week.
Following drenching rain in southeastern England on Wednesday, the U.K. welcomed a break from wet weather on Thursday as sunshine dominated.
The sunshine was short-lived for those in the north, as a front moved in with showers for Scotland and Northern Ireland on Thursday night.
The cold front will continue to move south and east through Friday, reaching cities such as Manchester and Liverpool. Most showers are expected to hold off reaching southeastern England until Friday night.
"Generally, the front will spark rounds of showers," said AccuWeather Meteorologist Brett Rathbun. "However, no heavy rain nor flooding issues are expected."

No organized weather systems are expected to follow for this weekend, although the odd shower will occur. The odd showers will dampen more places on Saturday than on Sunday.
This unsettled weather pattern will keep the summer warmth at bay. Highs will range from 15-18 C (59-64 F) this weekend across the north and from 18-22 C (65-71 F) from the Midlands southward.
More widespread rain may return early next week.
