on thursday, all four nations of the uk recorded a temperature above 30 degrees, so can we keep that up through the next few days? well, it is going to stayjust about dry, there'll be some sunshine around, but northern areas are going to turn just a little bit cooler. high pressure still with us, but it is drifting northwards. the flow of winds around high pressure in this clockwise direction. and that will allow us to tap into some slightly cooler air, sitting a long way up to the north, but some of that is just going to try to fringe its way into parts of scotland in particular. with that, some extra cloud into eastern areas as we start off friday morning. still mild there in glasgow to start the day, 15 degrees, similar temperature in london. as we go on through the day, some of this cloud will linger close to these eastern coasts. whereas over the last few days, it has burnt back out to sea, i think we will see a bit more cloud encroaching into these eastern areas.
1:56 am
as a consequence, it will be cooler. scotland generally a little bit less hot than it has been over the last day or so, so 26 degrees in glasgow on friday afternoon. further south, those temperatures still up into the high 20s. parts of wales, perhaps the western side of northern ireland, could still get up to 30 degrees. now, we go through friday night, and we're going to bring that cloud in eastern areas, a little bit further west. it'll spread across parts of the midlands, northern england. clear skies out west, temperatures dropping to between 9 and 1a degrees. high pressure, then, still with us as we start off the weekend. there are a couple of subtle weather features that might change things a bit — one frontal system which try to will bring a bit more cloud in to the north—west, and this area of low pressure, which will come into play through the second half of the weekend. but saturday a nice—looking day. in fact, even for those eastern areas, there'll probably be more sunshine on saturday than there will be on friday. and in the sunshine, those temperatures doing nicely. mid—to—high 20s for most places, still a bit cooler close to those north sea coasts.
1:57 am
i mentioned that area of low pressure down to the south and as get on into sunday, it will try to fringe a cluster of showers towards southern and western parts of the uk. so across the south—west, wales, perhaps northern ireland, there could just be some showers and perhaps some thunderstorms during sunday. further east, a lot of dry and sunny weather, and we start to bring the winds in from the near continent. levels of humidity are going to start to rise, temperatures back up to 30 degrees, maybe a little higher than that across parts of the south—east. and we stick with that slightly more humid feel as we go on into the new working week. a lot of dry weather, some spells of sunshine, just the chance of the odd shower in the south and west. welcome to bbc news — broadcasting to viewers in north america and around the globe. i'm mike embley. our top stories: a gunman opens fire at a local newspaper in annapolis, maryland, killing 5 people, injuring 2 more. this person was prepared today to, and —— coming, this person was prepared to shoot people. his intent
