UK forecast for the next 5 days

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Sunday 31 Aug 2014 to Tuesday 9 Sep 2014:

A dry start for most on Sunday, then increasingly wet and breezy as rain moves eastwards. Low risk of severe gales in the northwest later on Sunday and into Monday. Conditions then remaining on the unsettled side at first next week with further rain, mainly in the north, but brighter conditions and lighter winds likely across the south. By Tuesday though, more settled conditions will gradually spread in from the west. Southern areas are likely to see the best of these drier and brighter conditions with few showers, whilst northwestern areas would see the most frequent bouts of unsettled weather with further outbreaks of rain. Temperatures will generally be near normal at first but gradually increasing to just above average, with the best of the temperatures generally towards the southeast.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 10 Sep 2014 to Wednesday 24 Sep 2014:

Current signals continue to suggest a broadly changeable spell of weather. As such, most regions can expect to see spells of fine weather, with some warm sunshine at times. However, these spells will then be interspersed with more unsettled conditions bringing showery outbreaks and perhaps more prolonged spells of rain. Northern and western parts are then likely to see the most frequent bouts of unsettled weather, whilst southern and eastern parts should see the most frequent and prolonged fine and dry spells. Daytime temperatures, meanwhile, are likely to be warm during the fine spells and near or below average during unsettled weather.
