UK forecast for the next 5 days

Turning brighter with murky conditions becoming confined to the southeast.

Dull start for England and Wales with occasional rain and drizzle. Brighter conditions spreading from the northwest, though some southeastern parts remaining murky with perhaps the odd sharp shower. Turning breezier in the far northwest with a few showers.

Largely dry and warm with some sunshine once any overnight mist and fog patches clear. Probably cloudy for some southeastern parts, with the odd shower possible.

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Friday 5 Sep 2014 to Sunday 14 Sep 2014:

Dry for many on Friday with variable cloud amounts and some sunny spells once any localised early morning low cloud and mist patches clear. However, northwestern Scotland and the southwest of England may see some patchy drizzle at times. Temperatures generally above average, particularly across central and southern parts where it could be very warm. However, through the weekend, there is an increasing risk of rain or showers over southern areas. Rather changeable conditions are most likely into the following week, with variable amounts of cloud with bright or sunny spells, but also showers or rain at times, particularly over central and eastern parts. Temperatures ranging from near normal in the north to rather warm in the south.

UK Outlook for Monday 15 Sep 2014 to Monday 29 Sep 2014:

During mid to late September most regions can expect to see periods of fine weather, with some warm sunshine at times. However, these fine periods may well be interspersed with occasional spells of cloudier, more unsettled conditions bringing showers or longer spells of rain. Northern and western parts are probably most likely to see the more frequent bouts of unsettled weather, whilst southern and eastern parts should see the better fine and dry spells. Daytime temperatures are likely to be above average during fine weather leaving conditions feeling pleasantly warm. Nights, however, may well be on the chilly side. During any unsettled weather daytime temperatures are more likely to be near or below average leaving conditions feeling cool.
