Updated: 03:21 on Fri 28 Jul 2017 BST

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Sunshine and showers at first, but rain later.

Today:

A windy day with sunshine and showers at first. More persistent rain edges in from the southwest during the afternoon and evening, spreading across much of England and Wales. Rain turning heavy at times with strong winds in the southwest.

Tonight:

Showers continuing across Northern Ireland and Scotland. Rain moving east elsewhere. Becoming largely dry cross England and Wales by dawn, but cloud and rain lingering in the far southeast.

Saturday:

Sunshine and showers across Northern Ireland and Scotland and staying windy. Mostly dry for England and Wales at first, but outbreaks of rain across the south later in the afternoon.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Staying generally unsettled over the next few days. Frequent heavy showers on Sunday with a risk of thunder. Fewer showers on Monday and Tuesday with some dry and bright spells.

Updated: 01:39 on Fri 28 Jul 2017 BST

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Wednesday 2 Aug 2017 to Friday 11 Aug 2017:

An area of low pressure will bring rain and strong winds to the west on Wednesday, before this gradually spreads eastwards during Thursday. The heaviest rain is likely to be across the northwest, whilst further south and east there will be smaller amounts of rain. Thereafter, it is likely to remain unsettled across the UK, with a mixture of sunshine and showers, these heaviest and most frequent in the northwest with the risk of thunder. It will remain windy for most with the chance of gales in exposed parts of the west and northwest. It may start to turn drier in the south towards the end of this period. Temperatures will stay close to normal for early August, but it will feel cooler in showers and stronger winds.

UK Outlook for Saturday 12 Aug 2017 to Saturday 26 Aug 2017:

As we head through second week of August, there are signs that we will see drier and more settled weather with high pressure becoming more widely established across the UK. This will bring a break from the previously unsettled weather with longer spells of drier and brighter weather. However, there is still the chance that spells of rain or showers will affect the north at times. With more sunshine, temperatures should become a little warmer than normal for some, but with a west or northwesterly wind we could see some cooler nights. Later in August, confidence reduces significantly, perhaps with a return to more unsettled conditions in the north and west. The south may hold on to drier and brighter weather, but even here there is the risk of showers.
