    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Monday 5 Sep 2016 to Wednesday 14 Sep 2016:

    An unsettled start to the week across most parts, with outbreaks of rain at times, heaviest in the northwest where gales are possible. Towards the middle of the week southern parts will probably see a more settled spell develop, with plenty of dry, fine and warm weather. There is a reasonable chance that this fine weather will spread to all parts later in the week. Thereafter a northwest/southeast split is expected. Northwestern parts will likely see showers or outbreaks of rain interspersed by dry and bright interludes, whilst the southeast will be predominately dry and fine, with only brief wetter spells. Temperatures should be near or a little above normal in the northwest, but in the southeast they will be generally above normal, with some very warm spells possible.

    UK Outlook for Thursday 15 Sep 2016 to Thursday 29 Sep 2016:

    Confidence remains low in the forecast for this period, however the most probable scenario is for the northwest/southeast split to continue at first. This will bring showers or outbreaks of rain to northwestern parts, interspersed by drier and brighter interludes, whilst the southeast continues to see mainly dry and fine conditions. A trend towards more widespread drier, settled conditions looks possible for the second half of September, with perhaps eastern and northeastern parts seeing the best of this. Temperatures are likely to average out above normal, with some warm spells likely across all parts at times, but especially in the south.
