Forecast Summary

Regional forecast for South West England

A chilly start with cloud and showers spreading southwards.

Today:

Away from northern coasts it will be a bright but chilly start for many. Cloud and some showers are set to edge southwards through the day, but there should still be plenty of dry weather. Maximum Temperature 18C.

Tonight:

The cloud and some showery outbreaks of rain are likely to linger overnight before clearer conditions spread in from the north by dawn. Less chilly than recent nights. Minimum Temperature 9C.

Friday:

It is set to be a largely fine day with a fair amount of sunny spells, however it will still be slightly cooler than average for the time of year. Maximum Temperature 18C.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

Mostly fine on Saturday apart from the odd shower. Dry and fine come Sunday before wet and windy weather spreads eastwards into Monday. Cold nights over the weekend.

Issued at: 0500 on Thu 21 Aug 2014

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Cool again with showery rain slowly spreading southwards.

Today:

Breezy with cloud and showery rain slowly spreading southwards, but staying bright and largely dry in the southeast. Brightening again from the northwest later although some heavy, perhaps thundery, showers are possible for eastern Scotland. Cool again for many.

Tonight:

Less chilly than recent nights for southern parts with cloud and outbreaks of showery rain. Clearer and cooler conditions in the north continuing to edge southwards, with some showers.

Friday:

Cloud and showery outbreaks of rain across southern areas, clearing the far south early in the afternoon. Sunny spells and a few showers following from the north. Another cool day.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

Sunny periods on Saturday with showers mainly around northern and eastern coasts. Cool but mostly fine on Sunday, before outbreaks of rain spread eastwards into Monday, with temperatures rising.

Issued at: 0500 on Thu 21 Aug 2014

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Monday 25 Aug 2014 to Wednesday 3 Sep 2014:

Cloud and rain will spread eastwards during Monday, although possibly weakening as it does, with some northern and eastern parts perhaps staying dry for a time. Heavier bursts are likely in the west with stronger winds as well. Temperatures will generally be around normal, although it will be cool in the wind and rain. It then stays rather unsettled with scattered showers or longer spells of rain, interspersed with brighter spells. The wettest weather is likely to be in the northwest with stronger winds also likely at times, whilst the best of the drier and brighter interludes will be towards the southeast. It will stay cool in the wind and rain, although temperatures will be around normal and perhaps warmer at times during any drier spells and towards the southeast.

UK Outlook for Thursday 4 Sep 2014 to Thursday 18 Sep 2014:

Current signals continue to suggest a broadly changeable spell of weather. As such, most regions can expect to see spells of fine weather, with some warm sunshine at times. However, these spells will then be interspersed with more unsettled conditions bringing showery outbreaks and perhaps more prolonged spells of rain. Northern and western parts are then likely to see the most frequent bouts of unsettled weather, whilst southern and eastern parts are likely to see the most frequent and prolonged fine and dry spells. Daytime temperatures, meanwhile, are likely to be warm during the fine spells and near or below average during unsettled weather.
