Updated: 14:52 on Sun 25 Jun 2017 BST

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Patchy rain in the south. Sunshine and showers further north.

Today:

A rather cloudy morning across southern areas with patchy rain, especially across western hills, but this clearing to sunny intervals and showers. Sunshine and scattered showers elsewhere and rather windy across northern areas, with gales in the far northeast easing.

Tonight:

Clear spells for many after showers in the south clear. Showers continuing across exposed northern areas with cloud and rain reaching southern parts of Northern Ireland later. Chilly for some.

Monday:

After a fine start for many, cloud will build from the west with rain, locally heavy, across Northern Ireland, reaching other western areas later. Breezy in the far northeast.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

Unsettled throughout with showers or longer spells of rain that will turn heavy at times. There will be some brighter spells and feeling warmer in any sunshine.

Updated: 00:13 on Sun 25 Jun 2017 BST

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Friday 30 Jun 2017 to Sunday 9 Jul 2017:

Friday is likely to become breezy and showery across the country. Saturday could well be drier for a time before further rain moves in during the evening or overnight. Sunday and the following week will stay changeable with showers or longer spells of rain. There will also be some drier and brighter spells, which will be most likely in the south and east. In the northwest, showers are likely to be heavier, perhaps bringing a risk of thunder at times. It will sometimes be windy, especially in the north and west where there will be a risk of local gales at times. Temperatures are expected to stay near the seasonal average throughout, or be rather cool.

UK Outlook for Monday 10 Jul 2017 to Monday 24 Jul 2017:

The changeable weather is likely to continue in the north at first, bringing further showers or longer spells of rain with only brief bright or sunny spells in between. However, drier and warmer spells are likely to become more prevalent in the south and these may spread further north as we head into the second half of the month. These would bring more in the way of sunshine and higher temperatures, and there could be some very warm spells. However, an increase in temperatures would pose the threat of some thundery showers.
