Scattered thunderstorms in south. Remaining dull for some northeastern parts.

Another misty start for many, particularly eastern areas, brightening up away from the northeast coast, with warm sunny spells developing. Scattered heavy, thundery showers will affect southern and central parts, though many places dry throughout. Showery rain northeast Scotland later.

Tonight:

Showers will tend to become more isolated by evening, but some heavy thundery downpours are still possible in the south. Murky conditions in the east will spread westwards overnight again.

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Wednesday 24 Sep 2014 to Friday 3 Oct 2014:

Southern parts of the UK will be dry at first with sunny spells but it will be cloudier in the north and west with rain at times. These damp conditions will spread southwards with rain weakening, and some southern and southeastern areas will probably remain dry. Brighter, showery weather may follow to the northwest. It will be quite windy, with gales in the far north, and temperatures close to normal. Into the weekend the most likely scenario is for northwestern parts of the UK to see the most unsettled conditions with strong winds and outbreaks of rain. Further south and east there should be lengthier drier periods interspersed with occasional rain. It may become warm again here. This pattern of weather is expected to stay similar into the following week.

UK Outlook for Saturday 4 Oct 2014 to Saturday 18 Oct 2014:

The north-south split in the weather is more likely than not to continue for most of the period. The best of the drier and brighter conditions are expected to be across the south and east of the UK. Here, daytime temperatures are likely to be around, and often above average with some warm sunshine. However, it could turn quite chilly during the nights, with a risk of fog patches in places. Northern and western parts are likely to see more frequent outbreaks of rain and strong winds, with gales in the far north. Daytime temperatures here are set to be below or close to average.
