Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Saturday 11 Jul 2015 to Monday 20 Jul 2015:

It will stay dry and warm across much of the south through the weekend, but further north and west it will be more unsettled with some spells of rain. This rain may turn heavy and thundery as it spreads erratically eastwards, before being followed by brighter, fresher weather. Into the following week a period of more generally unsettled weather is expected across the UK. The north and west may be breezy at times, and will have the most frequent periods of rain early next week, while further south and east there will generally be much drier, brighter and often warm conditions. Temperatures will be generally close to or a little above normal, perhaps cooler at times in the northwest and rather warm at times in the southeast at first.

UK Outlook for Tuesday 21 Jul 2015 to Tuesday 4 Aug 2015:

A two way split in the weather seems most likely through this period, with southern and central parts staying generally dry, with fine and often warm conditions. Further north and northwest more unsettled and breezy weather will prevail with rain at times, but also some drier brighter interludes. Temperatures are likely to be close to or a little below normal in the north, with the south and southeast often being warm for the time of year.
