Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Sunday 7 Sep 2014 to Tuesday 16 Sep 2014:

Variable, in places large, amounts of cloud and some sunny spells on Sunday. The cloud may be thick enough for the odd drizzly shower. However, cloud and outbreaks of rain, locally heavy, may affect southwestern parts at times. Into next week, still a good deal of dry and bright weather, especially towards the north and northwest, but probably becoming more unsettled across southern areas with outbreaks of rain developing, heavy at times. Light winds at first, but becoming breezy from the southwest. Temperatures generally near or a little above average. Into the latter part of next week and beyond, the most likely scenario is for the unsettled conditions to migrate towards the northwest of the UK, with the best of the drier and warmer conditions towards the southeast.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 17 Sep 2014 to Wednesday 1 Oct 2014:

During mid to late September most regions can expect to see periods of fine weather, with some warm sunshine at times. However, these fine periods may well be interspersed with occasional spells of cloudier, more unsettled conditions bringing showers or longer spells of rain. Northern and western parts are probably most likely to see the more frequent bouts of unsettled weather, whilst southern and eastern parts should see the better fine and dry spells. Daytime temperatures are likely to be above average during fine weather leaving conditions feeling pleasantly warm. Nights, however, may well be on the chilly side. During any unsettled weather daytime temperatures are more likely to be near or below average leaving conditions feeling cool.
