Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Thursday 29 Jun 2017 to Saturday 8 Jul 2017:

Changeable weather is likely to continue with cloud and rain affecting most parts on Thursday, though it will be fairly warm in the north and east. Some drier and brighter periods are likely on Friday, probably in the south and west. The rest of this period will remain unsettled with showers or longer spells of rain. The showers could be heavy and thundery at times, interspersed with brief drier and brighter spells, most likely in the south and east. It will often be windy, especially in the north and west where there will be a risk of local gales at times. Temperatures are expected to drop to near normal or rather cool, especially compared to recently, although it may be warmer at times in the southeast.

Updated at: 1401 on Sat 24 Jun 2017

UK Outlook for Sunday 9 Jul 2017 to Sunday 23 Jul 2017:

The changeable weather is likely to continue in the north at first, bringing further showers or longer spells of rain with only brief bright or sunny spells in between. However, drier and warmer spells are likely to become more prevalent in the south and these may spread further north as we head into the second half of the month. These will bring more in the way of sunshine and higher temperatures, and there could be some very warm spells. However, an increase in temperatures would pose the threat of some thundery showers.
