Regional forecast for London & South East England

Dry and bright, with plenty of prolonged sunshine, and only limited amounts of cloud. However sunshine is likely to turn hazy later in the day, especially in the west. Maximum Temperature 24 °C.

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Dry and fine for most overnight.

This Evening and Tonight:

Dry with clear spells and light winds for most, with a few mist or fog patches forming late in the night. Across northern Scotland it will be a little breezier with some showers during the first half of the night.

Thursday:

Across northern and northwestern parts it will turn cloudier in the morning, with some outbreaks of rain spreading from the west. Elsewhere it will be dry with warm sunny spells.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

Updated at: 1512 on Wed 31 Aug 2016

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Monday 5 Sep 2016 to Wednesday 14 Sep 2016:

An unsettled start to the week across most parts, with outbreaks of rain at times, heaviest in the northwest where gales are possible. Towards the middle of the week southern parts will probably see a more settled spell develop, with plenty of dry, fine and warm weather. There is a reasonable chance that this fine weather will spread to all parts later in the week. Thereafter a northwest/southeast split is expected. Northwestern parts will likely see showers or outbreaks of rain interspersed by dry and bright interludes, whilst the southeast will be predominately dry and fine, with only brief wetter spells. Temperatures should be near or a little above normal in the northwest, but in the southeast they will be generally above normal, with some very warm spells possible.

Updated at: 1201 on Wed 31 Aug 2016

UK Outlook for Thursday 15 Sep 2016 to Thursday 29 Sep 2016:

Confidence remains low in the forecast for this period, however the most probable scenario is for the northwest/southeast split to continue at first. This will bring showers or outbreaks of rain to northwestern parts, interspersed by drier and brighter interludes, whilst the southeast continues to see mainly dry and fine conditions. A trend towards more widespread drier, settled conditions looks possible for the second half of September, with perhaps eastern and northeastern parts seeing the best of this. Temperatures are likely to average out above normal, with some warm spells likely across all parts at times, but especially in the south.
