UK Outlook for Friday 7 Aug 2015 to Sunday 16 Aug 2015:

Friday and Saturday are likely to be unsettled, with showers or longer spells, of rain. The rain being most persistent in the north and west, where it will be windy at times. The southeast could stay largely dry although there is the risk of some thundery showers here. Through the rest of the period, westerly or south-westerly winds will push bands of rain or showers across the country at times, interspersed by some drier and brighter interludes. The wettest and windiest weather occurring in the north and west, with the south seeing the best of the brighter weather. Temperatures will range from rather cool in the northwest, to near normal in the east, although there is the chance of some very warm interludes in the southeast.

UK Outlook for Monday 17 Aug 2015 to Monday 31 Aug 2015:

The changeable theme is likely to continue for much of the UK to the end of August with wet and windy conditions at times, particularly in the north and west of the UK. Southern and eastern parts will continue to see the best of any drier and brighter spells, although there is still a risk of rain or showers here at times. There is a weak signal for some periods of drier and more settled weather to develop towards the end of the month, however confidence in this is currently low. Temperatures on the whole will be near or below average for the time of year, especially in the north, although during any more settled spells of weather it could turn warmer at times in the southeast.
