Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Sunday 12 Jul 2015 to Tuesday 21 Jul 2015:

After some initial cloud and rain across the south, it should brighten up later on Sunday, but further north and west it will be more unsettled with further spells of rain. A period of generally unsettled weather is expected to continue, particularly across the northwest UK, into the start of next week. The north and west may be breezy at times, and will have the most frequent periods of rain, while further south and east conditions will generally be drier, brighter and often warm. Temperatures are expected to be close to or a little above normal, though perhaps cooler at times in the northwest and rather warm at times in the southeast, particularly in any sunnier interludes.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 22 Jul 2015 to Wednesday 5 Aug 2015:

A two way split in the weather seems most likely through this period, with southern and central parts seeing the best of the fine and dry conditions, with temperatures here often warm. Further north and northwest, more unsettled and breezy weather will prevail with rain or showers at times, but also some drier brighter interludes possible. Temperatures are likely to be close to or a little below normal in the north, with temperatures in the south and southeast occasionally feeling warm for the time of year.
