1:56 am
we have these massive thunderstorms that have developed. there is a risk of damaging winds, flash flooding, but we also have some thicker cloud working into scotland and northern ireland at the moment and that will continue to provide the focus of a few showers in northern scotland over the next few hours. but otherwise, if you're heading outside in the next hour or two, it is most likely to be dry and not too cold, temperatures between 9— 12 degrees. take a look at tuesday's weather picture, we will have those showers continue across northern scotland, not as many as we had on monday, so more of us will have dry weather. quite cloudy for most of us in north—western scotland and northern ireland. there will be some sunshine in eastern scotland and england and wales. a day similar to monday in that there should be some lengthy spells of sunshine around, staying dry. temperatures in the high teens to low 20s, the exceptions of the northern isles are temperatures are still a little on the cool side. it's another dry day at wimbledon and again there should be some spells of sunshine coming and going through the day, really. in the middle part of the week, our area of high pressure
1:57 am
is still firmly in charge of our weather and that means more in the way of dry weather. there could be a few showers just sneaking in across the extreme north of scotland where also there will be a fair bit of cloud. but the more broken cloud there is the more sunshine there will be. temperatures similar, really, 18—22, still a little cool up north with just 12. there will be some changes as we head into thursday. our area of high pressure slips a little bit further west, that allows some rain to come into scotland. whereas scotland gets wet, for england and wales gets a bit warmer with the winds coming a little further southwards around this high pressure and then across england and wales, boosting the temperatures here. now the rain in scotland is likely to be notjust heavy, but also pretty persistent, lasting for most of the day with those totals relly building up in the highlands. could potentially get a bit of rain in northern ireland,
1:58 am
that's a bit of an uncertainty there, but england and wales stays dry. and it gets warmer, 25 celsius on thursday in london, turning a tad more humid. similar conditions on friday, we see a lot of fine weather as we head into the weekend with further spells of sunshine. that's your weather.

i'm karishma vaswani in hong kong where the chief executive, carrie lam, has promised to take a hard line against the protestors who stormed and ransacked parliament. this is something that we should seriously condemn. because nothing is more important than the rule of law in hong kong. police ended the eight—hour occupation — evicting hundreds of activists. but the damage remains. many in the opposition are starting to ask questions about the wisdom of these young protesters storming into this building, whether it was really a victory of any sort or in fact it has handed victory to the government. i'm duncan golestani in london. our main story: we have a special report from the amazon rainforest,
