    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. However, towards the north, there will be more in the way of cloud and sporadic outbreaks of rain, 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.
