Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Saturday 3 Sep 2016 to Monday 12 Sep 2016:

This period is rather uncertain with influence on the weather pattern over the UK from tropical storms currently in the Atlantic. While these storms are unlikely to directly affect the UK some of the warm and moist air associated with them may develop into an area of low pressure and bring unsettled conditions, at times, over the weekend. These most likely in the north and west. Thereafter it is most likely to become changeable, with showers or longer spells of rain, interspersed with drier, brighter conditions. Wettest, windiest weather is likely across the northwest with driest, sunniest conditions in the southeast, though here there is a low risk of thunder at times. Temperatures will generally be near or a little above normal, with warmer spells in the east at times.

UK Outlook for Tuesday 13 Sep 2016 to Tuesday 27 Sep 2016:

Confidence remains low in the forecast for this period, however the most likely scenario is for the changeable weather to continue at first. This will bring showers or outbreaks of rain to some, these interspersed with drier and brighter interludes. The heaviest rain and stronger winds are likely in the northwest, with the drier conditions and lighter winds in the southeast. A trend towards more widespread drier, settled conditions looks possible for the second half of September. Temperatures are likely to be above normal.
