UK forecast for the next 5 days

Heavy rain for some, otherwise dry with sunny breaks.

Rain spreading into northern parts of Wales and England will become heavy in places whilst showers persist across northern Scotland. Another muggy night in the south with some showers.

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Wednesday 31 Aug 2016 to Friday 9 Sep 2016:

A band of rain will move southeastwards across the country on Wednesday. There is a risk of thundery showers breaking out ahead of the rain across central and southeastern parts of England. Brighter but showery weather will follow into the northwest, but southern and eastern parts are likely to become mainly dry. The weather through the rest of the period is likely to be changeable with showers or longer spells of rain, interspersed by some dry and brighter periods. The wettest and windiest weather is likely to occur in the north and west, although there is a low risk of thundery showers affecting the south at times. Temperatures will be generally near or a little above normal, although there is the chance of some warmer spells, especially in the southeast.

UK Outlook for Thursday 8 Sep 2016 to Thursday 22 Sep 2016:

There is some doubt in the detail of the forecast for this period, but the most likely scenario is for westerly or southwesterly winds to dominate. This will bring changeable weather, with showers or longer spells of rain interspersed by some dry and bright periods. The heaviest and most persistent rain is expected to occur in the north and west, where it could also be windy at times. The best of the brighter weather probably occurring in the south and east. A trend towards drier and more settled conditions looks more possible during the second half of September. Temperatures through this period are likely to be generally above average, with any colder spells being transient.
