    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Saturday 26 Jul 2014 to Monday 4 Aug 2014:

    There is likely to be plenty of fine and dry weather across the north and east of the UK over the first weekend. Across the south and west further showers are expected, which potentially could be heavy and thundery, but these should ease by Sunday. It will remain warm or very warm for many across the UK and perhaps locally hot in places, although sea breezes could keep some coastal parts a little fresher. During the next week, long periods of settled weather are expected, bringing a lot of fine, dry and warm weather. Occasional rain may affect northwestern parts with a low risk of isolated thundery showers in the south. Currently, the fine, largely dry and warm weather looks likely to persist until the end of the period.

    UK Outlook for Tuesday 5 Aug 2014 to Tuesday 19 Aug 2014:

    The recent settled conditions are expected to persist into the first part of the outlook period, with mostly fine and dry weather continuing, particularly across more southern parts. The far northwest may be the exception with more in the way of cloud and sporadic outbreaks of rain affecting more Northern Ireland and western Scotland. Temperatures should remain above average for most, possibly turning locally hot for a time in the south. Towards the end of the period, a change back to more generally unsettled conditions is looking likely with a higher risk of showers, although there will also be some drier, brighter interludes.
