Regional forecast for East Midlands

Sunny periods and the odd shower.

A dry start with patchy cloud and sunny periods. The odd shower is possible through the afternoon, mainly affecting north-western parts, though most places will miss these and stay dry. Pleasantly warm in the sunshine. Maximum Temperature 21°C.

Tonight:

Any showers will die away during the evening. Dry with clear spells overnight. Winds will ease and it will turn chilly in one or two rural spots by dawn. Minimum Temperature 8°C.

Sunday:

After a cool start, cloud is likely to increase through the morning to bring outbreaks of patchy, mostly light rain across the region by the afternoon. Maximum Temperature 19°C.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

Holiday Monday looks set to be fine and dry, if a little cooler. Tuesday and Wednesday some sunshine and perhaps the odd shower. Feeling cool with some particularly chilly nights.

Updated at: 0300 on Sat 29 Aug 2015

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Bright for all with sunny spells and some showery rain.

Today:

Many places dry with long sunny spells. The threat of showers continues in the north, heaviest and most frequent in the far northwest. Cloudier across parts of the south, with showery rain for some southern counties later.

Tonight:

Mild in the southeast with showery rain affecting some parts, possibly heavy with thunder. Further north, showers inland will ease, leaving clear spells and a chilly night.

Sunday:

Still breezy in the far north with scattered showers affecting Northern Ireland and Scotland. Cloudy at times further south with some showery rain, occasionally heavy later. Humid in the southeast.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

Rain across southern parts gradually clearing away east by Tuesday, with drier, brighter conditions following. Showers in the north slowly ease. Some warm sunshine, but chilly nights developing for all.

Updated at: 0202 on Sat 29 Aug 2015

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Wednesday 2 Sep 2015 to Friday 11 Sep 2015:

A settled start to the period, with dry and bright weather across much of the UK, but with some showers persisting in the far southeast at first. Fine weather is expected to continue through the weekend, but wet and windy conditions should then push into Scotland and northern England. Southeastern areas, in contrast, should see drier weather continue well into the following week. Temperatures will be around or just below normal during the day, although it will feel pleasantly warm with some sunny spells and a light breeze. The temperatures recover to just around normal in the southeast towards mid-September, but staying cool in the north. Overnight temperatures throughout the period are likely to slip below average, with the risk of a localised rural frost and fog patches.

UK Outlook for Saturday 12 Sep 2015 to Saturday 26 Sep 2015:

The northwest is expected to stay unsettled through the remainder of the month, with rain and strong winds likely. Southeastern areas in contrast should see less in the way of rain, and maybe the best of any dry and sunny spells, but with a chance of overnight mist and fog patches. Temperatures should generally be around normal, but with warmer spells under any prolonged sunny periods in the southeast. North and western parts are most likely to see cooler nights throughout with a chance of overnight frosts.
