UK Outlook for Saturday 26 Aug 2017 to Monday 4 Sep 2017:

Saturday is likely to be dry for most of us and warm in the east. One or two showers remain possible. Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday will probably become changeable again, with heavy showers or longer spells of rain, particularly in the north and west. However, parts of the southeast may stay mainly dry with some sunny spells. It will be windy at times, especially in the north, with a risk of gales here. Into the following week, there remains a lot of uncertainty, although we may continue to see spells of wet and windy weather, particularly in the northwest, with drier spells, mainly in the south. Temperatures will probably be near normal, though perhaps rather warm at times in the south.

UK Outlook for Tuesday 5 Sep 2017 to Tuesday 19 Sep 2017:

During this period, we are most likely to see changeable weather conditions featuring across the United Kingdom. However, there will be some dry and fine weather at times too. On balance spells of rain and strong winds are likely to dominate in the north and west, with drier and brighter weather more common in the south and east. Temperatures will probably remain close to normal for the time of year in most parts, though they may become warm or very warm at times in the south.
