UK forecast for the next 5 days

Sunny spells and blustery showers, although drier for south-eastern parts.

Rain will clear the south-east to leave a day of sunny spells and blustery showers for all, particularly for northern parts of the UK where some heavy thundery downpours are possible. Drier further south and east, feeling cool.

Tonight:

Showers will continue to affect Northern Ireland and western parts of Scotland through the night. Elsewhere, it turns drier with some clear spells developing, although it stays rather windy.

Saturday:

Sunny spells with scattered showers in the north-west, soon extending to other parts through the morning turning heavy and blustery in places. Windy, but easing in south-west later. Feeling cool.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Winds will ease but it stays unsettled with showers, sometimes merging into longer spells of rain. There will be some drier interludes around too, feeling warm in any sunshine.

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Tuesday 5 Jul 2016 to Thursday 14 Jul 2016:

The latest indications are that the weather during early to mid July will remain changeable and often unsettled with bands of rain pushing eastwards across the British Isles, interspersed with intervals of sunshine and showers. In general the wettest weather is most likely to occur across the west and north, where it will also be windy at times, while the south and east should see the best of any drier and brighter spells, along with generally lighter winds. The temperature is expected to be mostly on the cool side for the time of year, particularly in western and northern parts. However it will feel warmer in any drier, sunnier periods, especially in the south and east.

Updated at: 1239 on Thu 30 Jun 2016

UK Outlook for Friday 15 Jul 2016 to Friday 29 Jul 2016:

Initially in mid July changeable weather is likely to persist across the north, with spells of rain or sunshine and showers, and temperatures close to or below average for the time of year. However as we head towards the latter part of the month there are signs that a spell of generally more settled weather may start to take hold, which would bring longer dry periods along with warmer temperatures and lighter winds, especially across southern areas. There is also a chance of more humid continental air moving up across the south and southeast at times, bringing very warm temperatures and perhaps a risk of some thundery showers.
