way. let me show you the bigger picture and what is happening across our part of the world in the last 2a hours or so. look at this big dip in thejet stream which hours or so. look at this big dip in the jet stream which helped develop this low—pressure which swept across the country in the last day or so bringing us a fair bit of rain and strong winds across southern areas and here is the schematic of how the jet stream works and you can see the dip which brings the cooler air from the north but deflects the warmth towards eastern europe and this is where some of his, and this is our summer with the colder weather coming in from northern climes so cold air is one of the reasons why we see the showers developing and the strength of the sunshine in the southern alps helps to bubble up the shower clouds which are only so big and some will linger through the night and they are there at 5am and there are all the weather fronts across scotland and may be some persistent rain, so low—pressure not right over us tomorrow but close enough to drive the weather and remember this is fairly cool air,
6:31 pm
relatively speaking, over us, so as we go through the afternoon, look at that, the sun comes out and we see showers developing and remember they are only so big, so difficult to pinpoint which towns or city will get it but plenty of sunny spells and around the winds will be lighter and around the winds will be lighter and it's going to feel a little bit warmer. most of the showers tomorrow evening seem to be across the more central and eastern areas of the uk. how about the outlook? the rainbow behind me shows the shower clouds, and the temperature, steady as she goes, the low 20s in the south and in the north typically in the high teens. over to you. that's all from the bbc news at six. so, it's goodbye from me, and on bbc one we nowjoin the bbc�*s news teams where you are.

6:36 pm
to the 60,000 fans inside. it's re to the 60,000 fans inside. it's pretty unfair— to the 60,000 fans inside. it�*s pretty unfair if i am honest. they are better off being in front of crowd as opposed to a smaller number. it's a situation that is strange of course. but i hope there are italian and spanish fans. more than their english. it's not something we can control. 32 games unbeaten. it's been more circumspect but pushed for extra time by croatia. just over an hour to go for just another match. but this means
6:37 pm
more. .iwas at . i was at that 2012 final between the two sides when spain absolute the two sides when spain absolute the batch absolutely ripped italy apart. we all became very familiar with the tactics before we get to these two teams when i was driving down the motorway exactly italian or spanish fans and have you managed to gauge the makeup of the fans? it’s gauge the makeup of the fans? it's auoin gauge the makeup of the fans? it�*s going to be interesting isn't it. to
6:38 pm
between the spanish and and italian fans. but i can see at that number of italian fans off to my right and we know of course there's been an increase in the capacity for 60,000 as part of the government events research programme expecting around 53,000 eight will be the largest capacity crowd of icebreaking event in the last 60 months or so but i see know we won't be seeing those italian and spanish fans flying in for this one but around 53,000 tickets sold and i have to say they are and a half away from kick—off and atmosphere is already building. that was very special and a lot of people straightaway said they are going to go all the way. it’s
6:39 pm
people straightaway said they are going to go all the way.— going to go all the way. it's been an incredible _ going to go all the way. it's been an incredible turnaround - going to go all the way. it's been an incredible turnaround from i going to go all the way. it's been an incredible turnaround from it| going to go all the way. it's been. an incredible turnaround from it in you consider they did not qualify for the 2018 world cup. the first time that happened in 60 years but roberto came through and maximum points from the group. they had a wobble in the last 60 and taken extra time by austria but then of course they proved their worth with that really impressive results against belgium winning 2—1. producing the best and worst we've seen but the theatrics for italy as they close the game out and do what they close the game out and do what they need to do. in the latter stages of the match the final 21 minutes as belgium are trying to push forward the equaliser. and a great mix of experience but then you look at the midfield as well and the way they have got
6:40 pm
nicola and barry who has been playing brilliantly. the chelsea playmaker has been fantastic alongside marco. you will not find a better midfield from international football and then you look at the success activity are having in the tournament and they are saved at that event that success on the international stage when they won the european championship match 2000 eight and then again in 2012 of course when you said earlier they beat italy 4—0 in the final, wrapped around the world cup success. i do wonder whether eddie leie building something with the team that they have gotjust likes being deadpan. they have done it the hard way. it’s they have done it the hard way. it's been they have done it the hard way. it�*s been fascinating. getting some bullying from this crowd at the moment. the coachjust bullying from this crowd at the moment. the coach just pulled bullying from this crowd at the
6:41 pm
moment. the coachjust pulled up outside perhaps that's an indicator and they started so and they only drew the first two matches of the group and then of course they have got up to speed with that in over slovakia. they have only won one match in 90 minutes so far and they had their troubles and he faced a lot of criticism on social media and the way to see if they can produce the way to see if they can produce the goods tonight. and the rain has stopped and as a little reminder for staying on may believe that this is after about an english semi. let’s after about an english semi. let's move on to _ after about an english semi. let's move on to england _ after about an english semi. let's move on to england now. - after about an english semi. let's move on to england now. the most complete performance at the
6:42 pm
tournament so far the 4—0 rain against ukraine. one of the standout performances there. there were of goals for harry kane but they were a couple of england plus plus four goals set up and he spoke to us about what they think squad is all about what they think squad is all about and parent togetherness. i feel like a team also in moment that confidence is the belief there and i think the most important thing is they're really enjoying this journey and it's been an amazing, and every loved it and i think it's shown to people how close and to is and it shows as well that maybe perform and of course celebrate and this msa team that won the need to enjoy. ahead of the game tomorrow i denmark, they will stay and elinor

really important. and i think he has| shown great empathy and i think he is a terrific leader and he's very thoughtful and incredibly intelligent and i think he has gained the trust of the team and the trust of the nation over the last few weeks and i'm not sure that was the case at the beginning. the -la ers the case at the beginning. the players are — the case at the beginning. the players are not _ the case at the beginning. the players are not long back from rome but there is going to be a very different feel to things this week. we know many fans were not able to travel to support them but they speak wembley is at 75% capacity so 60,000 fans tonight and tomorrow night and for the final on sunday. i am sure i italy takes off against spain at eight o'clock, the players at the hotel will be watching. it can guarantee they will be to find out who they might be paying in the final. we will have more from wembley later in the programme. that is headed back to the bbc sport centre for the rest of today's headlines. thanks olly, we'll be back at wembley later in the programme... but away from the football... it's been another brilliant day

for britain's mark cavendish at the tour de france. the manx missile sprinted to victory on stage 10 — the 33rd stage victory of his career. cavendish considered quitting the sport last year after illness, injury and poorform — but now he's just one stage win away from the all—time record, as nick parrott reports. a brief rest bites from the mountains and the chance for mark to shine again. it was a place where he won back in 2010, doing it again was what mattered. stating he energy for the finish and a couple of lapses in concentrations and classes not much you can do about mechanical problems. catching up would cost the italian vital energy. even without
