UK forecast for the next 5 days

Warm sunny spells and some heavy and thundery showers today.

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Thursday 9 Jul 2015 to Saturday 18 Jul 2015:

Bright and breezy on Thursday with a mixture of showers and sunny spells, together with a brisk northerly breeze. Less windy on Friday with a mixture of broken cloud and a few showers across much of the UK, although the southwest may turn cloudier with a little drizzle at times. After this, a fairly quiet period of weather is likely to develop through next weekend and into the following week, with mostly dry conditions across southern parts but some rain at times in the north. Temperatures during this period will tend to drop a little below normal to start with, this feeling much cooler than of late for many places, before slowly rising later, perhaps becoming warm in the southeast.

UK Outlook for Sunday 19 Jul 2015 to Sunday 2 Aug 2015:

Many southern and central parts of the UK are likely to be mostly dry, often with fine, warm conditions. Towards the north and northwest there will be some cloudier conditions with rain at times, although even here some periods of dry weather are expected. Temperatures are likely to be around average in the north, but in the south there may be spells of very warm weather for the time of year. These hot conditions bring a low risk of occasional thundery outbreaks, mainly for the southeast.
