    UK forecast for the next 5 days

    Cloudier and less hot than yesterday. Thundery showers for some.

    Today:

    Warm and largely fine, although much less hot than yesterday for many. It'll be a cloudier day too, with the risk of thundery showers throughout; this mainly across the south at first, and towards northern parts later in the day.

    Tonight:

    Cloud will tend to thin and clear from the west during the evening, with any remaining thundery showers clearing northeast Scotland early in the night. Cooler than on recent nights.

    Friday:

    A fresher start than on previous days, with sunny spells for most. It'll turn increasingly warm and humid later though, especially across the south, with thundery rain spreading north later.

    Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

    Rain, locally heavy with thunder, clearing the north during Saturday, with drier, fresher, breezier conditions following. Further warm sunshine Sunday and Monday, though with scattered showers, mainly north and west.

    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Monday 6 Jul 2015 to Wednesday 15 Jul 2015:

    Monday looks to start bright for most with perhaps only a few showers affecting north and western parts of the country. However as we go through the afternoon there is an increasing risk of some rain spreading into the west and northwest at times, and there is a low risk of isolated thundery showers developing late on Monday afternoon in the South East, but most places here will remain dry and fine. Becoming slightly cloudier and cooler generally towards the middle of the week, before temperatures building again towards the weekend, with a risk of thundery showers pushing up from the continent at times. Temperatures will remain near or slightly above average for many, though the very warm, humid conditions could perhaps return to the south and southeast at times.

    UK Outlook for Thursday 16 Jul 2015 to Thursday 30 Jul 2015:

    Many southern and central parts of the UK are likely to be mostly dry, often with fine, warm conditions. Out towards the north and northwest there will be some cloudier conditions with rain at times, however even here any periods of rain may well be less frequent than normal with some good periods of dry weather expected. Temperatures are likely to be around average in the northwest, but in the southeast there will be spells of very warm weather for the time of year, and could possibly become hot at times with a low risk of occasional thundery outbreaks.
