Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Wednesday 16 Jul 2014 to Friday 25 Jul 2014:

It will be rather cloudy with some rain at times across northern and western parts of the UK on Wednesday and Thursday. Elsewhere, it will generally be fine and dry with some sunny spells, although there is a risk of heavy showers in the southeast, especially on Thursday. Temperatures will be warm or very warm in the sunshine, especially in the southeast. From Friday onwards, it will become generally unsettled with a mixture of sunny spells and showers, but also thicker cloud and longer spells of rain spreading eastwards at times. The best of any sunshine will remain in areas to the south and east, where it will feel humid and very warm, perhaps hot, at times. However, there will also be a chance of some heavy, thundery showers.

UK Outlook for Saturday 26 Jul 2014 to Saturday 9 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.
