Heavy and potentially thundery showers could arrive in east London on Saturday (August 7), according to the Met Office.

The weather forecaster predicts widespread showers through the morning on Saturday, with a maximum temperature around 22C. 

Sunday and Monday are predicted to be breezy with sunny spells but yet more showers, with a risk of thundery downpours.

Despite the mixed forecast, yellow weather warnings in place for thunder and heavy rain on Saturday do not extend down as far as east London.
