UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Rain moving east with sunshine and some blustery showers following.

Today:

A band of wet and rather windy weather will move east across the British Isles, giving some heavy bursts of rain in the north. Brighter skies will follow to most parts later, but with blustery showers developing in the northwest.

Tonight:

Most southern and eastern areas will become dry with clear spells overnight. It will stay breezy everywhere though, and further blustery showers will feed in across the west and northwest.

Thursday:

It will be cool and breezy with sunshine and showers. The showers will be most frequent in the north and northwest. Heavy showers will affect England in the afternoon.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

Some sunny spells, although showers or longer spells of rain too, cool temperatures and brisk winds at times. Southern areas will see the most persistent rain, the northwest most showers.

Updated: 01:23 on Wed 26 Jul 2017 BST

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Monday 31 Jul 2017 to Wednesday 9 Aug 2017:

A generally unsettled spell of weather is expected on Monday and Tuesday with a mixture of sunshine and showers for most, and possibly a spell of more prolonged rain in the southeast. Heavy showers and strong winds are most likely in the north and west with a risk of hail and thunder, with lighter winds elsewhere. The unsettled pattern looks most likely set to continue until early August with further frontal systems affecting the United Kingdom, interspersed with clearer or perhaps showery weather and some unseasonably windy conditions at times, mainly in the north and west. Temperatures should be around normal to cool, with perhaps only the far south east seeing some warmer and humid conditions at times.

UK Outlook for Thursday 10 Aug 2017 to Thursday 24 Aug 2017:

Changeable or unsettled conditions are likely at first with periods of rain interspersed with clearer or showery weather. There are increasing signals for high pressure to build which would allow for more settled conditions and rising temperatures, mostly likely in the south. By the middle of August signals become mixed and confidence is low. However, the preferred solution is for north-western parts to stay largely changeable, with drier and brighter spells of weather becoming more prevalent in the southeast. However, most areas could see showers or longer spells of rain at times.
