    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Sunday 27 Jul 2014 to Tuesday 5 Aug 2014:

    Largely fine and dry weather is expected across southern parts of the UK initially, although isolated showers could affect the southeast, while in the north a band of showery rain may edge southwards through Sunday. It will remain warm or very warm for many, and perhaps locally hot in places, although sea breezes should keep some coastal parts a little fresher. During next week, lengthy periods of fine, dry and warm weather are likely. Occasional rain and brisk winds may affect 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 south at times.

    UK Outlook for Wednesday 6 Aug 2014 to Wednesday 20 Aug 2014:

    The recent generally settled conditions are expected to persist into the first part of this period, with mostly fine and dry weather continuing across more southern parts. Towards the north, more in the way of cloud and sporadic outbreaks of rain are likely. Temperatures should remain above average for most, possibly turning locally hot for a time in the south. Later in the period, a change towards more unsettled conditions overall is looking likely with a higher risk of rain or showers, although there will also be some drier, brighter interludes.
