UK forecast for the next 5 days

Sunshine and scattered showers, most frequent in the northeast.

Isolated showers will continue in places, however most will have a dry and increasingly clear night. With the wind gradually easing, this will lead to it feeling rather chilly.

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Tuesday 26 Aug 2014 to Thursday 4 Sep 2014:

Any lingering rain in the far east may clear on Tuesday, there will then be spells of rain or showers through the middle of next week as a mobile westerly pattern becomes established. Winds could be locally strong in the north and west, with a risk of gales. It then stays rather unsettled through the period with scattered showers or longer spells of rain, interspersed with brighter spells. The wettest weather is likely to be in the northwest with stronger winds also likely at times, whilst the best of the drier and brighter interludes will be towards the southeast. It will stay cool in the wind and rain, although temperatures will be close to or slightly below normal, but warm at times during any drier spells and towards the southeast.

UK Outlook for Friday 5 Sep 2014 to Friday 19 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 are likely to 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.
