The weather on Thursday is going to become settled mostly everywhere, with clouds and rain moving north eastward towards the North Atlantic along the high pressure system still positioned over the continent. Thus bright and mild conditions are expected over the UK with still Tropical air mass coming from the south (Fig2).
