Get set for some sunshine!

Sunrise at Stranraer

HERE'S the sun rising over Loch Ryan on what's predicted to be the warmest day of the year so far. The West of Wigtownshire should see, say the Met Office, see plenty of sunshine with temperatures of around 25C (77F). Further East and the mercury could touch 27C (80.6F). There's one fly in in the ointment – the entire western seaboard of the UK is under a yellow weather warning for thunderstorms and downpours of rail and possibly hail from 4pm today until 9am tomorrow. Says the Met Office: "Thunderstorms may develop across parts of western UK late on Thursday afternoon and into the evening. "A larger area of thunderstorms is then expected to move northeastwards overnight into Friday. "Many places will miss the worst of the storms but where they do occur, torrential downpours could bring 30-40 mm rain in less than two hours. Lightning and hail are also likely to be additional hazards."
