Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Monday 7 Sep 2015 to Wednesday 16 Sep 2015:

Settled conditions with variable cloud amounts and sunny spells are to develop through Monday. Perhaps a few light showers may develop around windward coasts in the east and northwest at first. Through the rest of the outlook period the settled conditions should become established across all parts, with some cool misty starts followed by dry and fine days. Temperatures will be close to normal and it will feel pleasantly warm in the sunshine and gradually trend upwards through the week. Overnight temperatures are likely to be on the chilly side at first, with a risk of some localised rural grass frosts, most especially in the north. More unsettled conditions are likely to develop towards the northwest during the latter half of the period.

UK Outlook for Thursday 17 Sep 2015 to Thursday 1 Oct 2015:

The second half of September is likely to see a trend towards a northwest, southeast split, with the southeast holding on to the best of the drier weather, although with occasional unsettled spells developing here, while the northwest sees more regular outbreaks of rain and strong winds. Temperatures will be generally close to average, but with cooler conditions developing towards the north and west later. By the end of the month there is a small chance of some more settled warmer conditions becoming established again.
