UK forecast for the next 5 days

Showers affecting northwestern parts. Drier and brighter elsewhere.

Today:

Most places will see another fine and dry day with bright or sunny spells. Still breezy for a time in parts of the north with scattered showers, some of these turning heavy.

Tonight:

Staying dry across many southern and eastern areas with evening sunshine and clear spells overnight. Partly cloudy with scattered showers continuing further north and west, although becoming less breezy.

Thursday:

Showers will continue across the north and west, turning heavy and perhaps thundery at times, especially Scotland. Drier in the southeast with warm sunny spells, but still with isolated showers.

Issued at: 0500 on Wed 30 Jul 2014

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Sunday 3 Aug 2014 to Tuesday 12 Aug 2014:

Remaining changeable, with showers or longer spells of rain likely across the northwest of the UK to start Sunday. Just a few showers possible elsewhere, locally heavy. On Monday, rain probably returning from the west, heavy at times in the west, but may not reach some eastern areas during the day. The unsettled theme is likely to continue until the end of the period, although there may be more in the way of drier and brighter conditions developing across the south and east later. Temperatures generally near normal, but often warm towards the south and east. Winds generally light to moderate for most, but perhaps locally strong in the northwest, then a risk of gales in some exposed western parts into the middle of next week.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 13 Aug 2014 to Wednesday 27 Aug 2014:

With no particularly strong signals regarding weather patterns over the UK during the latter part of August, conditions are more likely than not to be close to climatology. As such most regions can expect to see periods of fine weather with some sunshine interspersed by occasional spells of more changeable conditions with showers or rain. Northern parts are perhaps most likely to see the most frequent bouts of unsettled weather leaving southern parts with the most prolonged fine spells. Daytime temperatures are then likely to often be above average during fine spells.
