    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Sunday 31 Jul 2016 to Tuesday 9 Aug 2016:

    A good deal of bright weather is likely at first, but with showers affecting western and northwestern parts, while southeastern areas remain generally dry. Temperatures will be near or slightly below average, with some chilly nights, especially in the north. From Tuesday it is expected to turn more unsettled generally, with a mixture of brighter but showery spells interspersed by cloudier conditions with outbreaks of rain. Northwestern parts will see the heaviest rain and strongest winds, whereas the southeast will get the best of the dry and bright weather. Temperatures generally around average, but sometimes cooler in the northwest. The weather may turn more settled for the first weekend in August, with temperatures trending upwards, but how long this lasts, if it occurs at all, is very uncertain.

    After perhaps a brief settled and warmer spell at first, the weather will most probably return to a changeable regime.

Northern and northwestern parts will generally see the wettest weather, with the south and southeast seeing the most lengthy dry and fine spells.
