Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Monday 14 Jul 2014 to Wednesday 23 Jul 2014:

Largely dry and bright on Monday, away from the southeast where outbreaks of rain continue for a time at first, and feeling fresher than on previous days. Rain arriving in the north and west later will spread eastwards overnight and into Tuesday, although the far southeast could stay warm and dry throughout. From Wednesday onwards, it will be generally unsettled with a mixture of sunny spells and showers, but also thicker cloud and longer spells of rain across northern and western parts, with near-normal temperatures. The best of any sunshine will remain in areas to the south and east, where it will feel humid and very warm at times, locally hot. However, there will also be a chance of some heavy, thundery showers.

UK Outlook for Thursday 24 Jul 2014 to Thursday 7 Aug 2014:

There are currently no strong signals concerning the most likely evolution during this period. As such the favoured scenario weather-wise for the latter part of July and first part of August is for conditions to be close to what is climatologically usual for the time of year. This suggests that northern and western parts will be most likely to be affected by spells of unsettled weather whilst southern, eastern and central regions have the best chance of more prolonged settled periods. Meanwhile, where the weather is fine daytime temperatures are likely to be above average leaving conditions feeling warm.
