UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Rain clearing from the southeast, then sunshine and showers.

Today:

Early rain will clear from the southeast during the morning, with a mixture of sunshine and showers following across the country. The showers may be heavy at times, however it will remain largely dry for some in the far northeast.

Tonight:

Becoming windy across the north and west with heavy showers or longer spells of rain. Elsewhere, it will be drier though still breezy with a few showers.

Friday:

A windy, cool day with sunny spells and also some showers. These could be heavy and thundery, especially in the west. Cloudier with spells of rain across Scotland.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

Strong winds and showers will gradually ease for most on Saturday. However, it will turn wet and windy in the west on Sunday with rain erratically travelling southeast on Monday.

Updated: 01:51 on Thu 17 Aug 2017 BST

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Monday 21 Aug 2017 to Wednesday 30 Aug 2017:

Rain should sink southeast on Monday, followed by showers in the north and west. Largely settled conditions are likely to develop across the majority of the UK by the middle of next week as showers and rain ease away. A few days of generally settled weather is then expected, barring a few showers. Through the rest of the period, it will probably turn more changeable on the whole with spells of rain, showers and strong winds at times, the heaviest of which are expected in the northwest. However, prolonged drier and brighter periods are likely between these spells of unsettled weather. Temperatures look set to remain around or a little below the average at first, although it may become generally warmer from the middle of next week.

UK Outlook for Thursday 31 Aug 2017 to Thursday 14 Sep 2017:

For the end of August and into the first part of September, we are most likely to see changeable weather conditions dominating across the UK. However, there is a chance of some more prolonged dry and fine weather at times too. As a result, on balance there are likely to be spells of rain and strong winds at times, especially across the north and west, which will then be interspersed with several days of drier and warmer weather. Temperatures may become warm or very warm at times, especially in the south. However, they will probably remain generally close to normal for the time of year elsewhere.
