UK forecast for the next 5 days

Largely fine and very warm. Misty along some eastern coasts.

This Evening and Tonight:

Any heavy, thundery showers, mainly in the far southwest will soon die away, leaving a dry evening with warm sunshine. Mostly clear and dry overnight, although mist and low cloud will encroach inland from northeastern coasts to central areas.

Friday:

A generally fine, warm and dry day for most areas, but isolated heavy showers are possible, mainly in the southeast. Low cloud will again affect northeastern parts, persisting along coasts.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

Cloudier with showery rain affecting the north and west on Saturday. Mostly fine and dry further south. Showery rain moving southeastwards Sunday and Monday, then brighter conditions following. Less warm.

Issued at: 1700 on Thu 24 Jul 2014

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Tuesday 29 Jul 2014 to Thursday 7 Aug 2014:

The largely fine and dry weather is expected to continue across most parts of the UK initially, although in the north an area of weakening and fragmenting rain is expected to move slowly southeastwards through Tuesday. It will remain warm or very warm for many, although sea breezes should keep some coastal parts a little fresher. During next week, lengthy periods of fine, dry and warm weather are likely, mainly over southern and southwestern areas, but occasional rain and brisk winds often affecting northern parts with temperatures here returning closer to average. The last part of this period should be similar, although there are indications that the more unsettled weather in the north may extend further towards the south.

UK Outlook for Friday 8 Aug 2014 to Friday 22 Aug 2014:

The generally unsettled conditions look set to continue through the start of this period with more in the way of cloud and sporadic outbreaks of rain in the north, while the best of the drier, brighter spells will be in the south and east. Temperatures should remain above average for southeastern parts initially, but returning to near normal later. A return to more settled conditions in the south is looking likely towards the end of the period.
