This weekend will see fresher weather across many areas with some patchy rain in the south.
Showers are going to be heavier in northern and western Scotland as a deep area of low pressure passes to the north. Widespread gales are expected in Scotland too.
Dr Keeling said: "Things improving for most of us on Sunday but this is the day to get those last minute jobs sorted because things are changing into next week.
"There is uncertainty over the timing of the change but latest ideas are that rain arrives in the west on Monday. This then spreads east and may be heavy and thundery at times.
"Low pressure then takes control for the rest of the week bringing stronger winds, rain and showers. It may be that the east and south are still relatively warm for a few days, although nowhere near as warm as last week.
"However, but the end of the week the winds are expected to become more northerly bringing cooler weather with heavy showers."
Dr Keeling said conditions were expected to improve from July 10.
