UK Outlook for Wednesday 3 Aug 2016 to Friday 12 Aug 2016:

On Wednesday and Thursday potentially heavy rain is likely to affect most areas for a time before brighter, showery conditions follow from the west. These showery conditions should continue through the weekend, although southern and southwestern parts may become more settled for a while. Then as we head towards mid August the latest indications are that changeable conditions will prevail, with intervals of dry, sunny weather interspersed with periods of rain, showers and strong winds. Northwestern parts are likely to see the heaviest rain and strongest winds whereas the southeast should experience the best of the drier, brighter weather. Some large swings in temperature are likely, although overall it should average out at close to or slightly below normal for the time of year.
