Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Thursday 1 Sep 2016 to Saturday 10 Sep 2016:

Thursday is likely to be dry for many, apart from a few showers in the northwest, and a band of patchy rain across parts of Wales and central England. This weakening band of rain will gradually move southeastwards on Friday, but at the same time another band of rain will move in from the northwest, which will be accompanied by some strong winds. Thereafter the changeable pattern is likely to continue, with showers or longer spells of rain, interspersed by some drier and brighter periods. The wettest and windiest weather is likely across the northwest, although there is a low risk of thundery showers occasionally affecting the south. Temperatures, generally near or a little above normal, although there is the chance of some warmer spells, especially in the southeast.

Updated at: 1202 on Sat 27 Aug 2016

UK Outlook for Sunday 11 Sep 2016 to Sunday 25 Sep 2016:

There is some doubt in the detail of the forecast for this period, but the most likely scenario is for westerly or southwesterly winds to dominate. This will bring changeable weather, with showers or longer spells of rain interspersed by some dry and bright periods. The heaviest and most persistent rain is expected to occur in the north and west, where it could also be windy at times. The best of the brighter weather probably occurring in the south and east. A trend towards drier and more settled conditions looks more possible during the second half of September. Temperatures through this period are likely to be generally above average, with any colder spells being transient.
