    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Tuesday 1 Sep 2015 to Thursday 10 Sep 2015:

    A mixture of sunshine and showers at the start of the period, with a risk of persistent heavy rain in the east. Drier in the west, as settled weather begins to spread east, but with some showers still possible. The settled weather is then likely to become dominant across most areas through the first week of September, with plenty of dry and sunny weather, but windy in the northeast for a time. Northwestern parts may see a change to generally wet and windy conditions later in the period, with southeastern parts holding on to more settled weather. Temperatures start on the cool side with a risk of some overnight frost and fog, but return closer to normal as the month progresses.

    UK Outlook for Friday 11 Sep 2015 to Friday 25 Sep 2015:

    The northwest is expected to stay unsettled through the remainder of the month, with rain and strong winds likely. Southeastern areas in contrast should see less in the way of rain, and maybe the best of any dry and sunny spells, but with a chance of overnight mist and fog patches. Temperatures should generally be around normal, but with warmer spells under any prolonged sunny periods in the southeast. North and western parts are most likely to see cooler nights throughout with a chance of overnight frosts.
