Forecast summary

  • Regional
  • UK 5 days
  • UK 6-30 days

Regional forecast for North West England

Heavy and possibly thundery rain for many overnight.

This Evening and Tonight:

Apart from the odd shower, this evening should be dry, but a band of more organised rain will develop overnight. The rain will turn heavy, persistent and possibly thundery at times, giving the risk of some surface water flooding. Minimum Temperature 13 °C.

Sunday:

Sunday will start cloudy and wet, but the rain will ease, allowing brighter skies to develop. The afternoon will then see some sunny spells, but also the odd shower. Maximum Temperature 20 °C.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

Dry on Monday with sunny spells. Cloudier on Tuesday but remaining largely dry, aside for some drizzle over higher ground. Wednesday looks breezier with some rain, although perhaps brighter later.

Updated at: 1523 on Sat 27 Aug 2016

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Heavy rain in places overnight. Humid in the south.

This Evening and Tonight:

Showers or longer spells of rain across many areas, with the heaviest and most persistent rain develops across northern England and north Wales. A warm and muggy night to come across the southern half of the UK, but fresher elsewhere.

Sunday:

After a cloudy and wet start for some, rain will gradually ease to leave a mixture of sunshine and showers for most, these heaviest in central, eastern and northern areas.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

An improvement on Monday as showers fade, leaving sunny breaks. Mainly dry on Tuesday before rain spreads into the north and west on Wednesday, but staying fine and dry elsewhere.

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Thursday 1 Sep 2016 to Saturday 10 Sep 2016:

Thursday is likely to be dry for many, apart from a few showers in the northwest, and a band of patchy rain across parts of Wales and central England. This weakening band of rain will gradually move southeastwards on Friday, but at the same time another band of rain will move in from the northwest, which will be accompanied by some strong winds. Thereafter the changeable pattern is likely to continue, with showers or longer spells of rain, interspersed by some drier and brighter periods. The wettest and windiest weather is likely across the northwest, although there is a low risk of thundery showers occasionally affecting the south. Temperatures, generally near or a little above normal, although there is the chance of some warmer spells, especially in the southeast.

Updated at: 1202 on Sat 27 Aug 2016

UK Outlook for Sunday 11 Sep 2016 to Sunday 25 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.
