UK Outlook for Sunday 31 Jul 2016 to Tuesday 9 Aug 2016:

A good deal of bright weather is likely at first, but with showers affecting western and northwestern parts, while southeastern areas remain generally dry. Temperatures will be near or slightly below average, with some chilly nights, especially in the north.

Northwestern parts will see the heaviest rain and strongest winds, whereas the southeast will get the best of the dry and bright weather. Temperatures generally around average, but sometimes cooler in the northwest.

After perhaps a brief settled and warmer spell at first, the weather will most probably return to a changeable regime.
