UK Outlook for Thursday 31 Jul 2014 to Saturday 9 Aug 2014:

Heavy showers in northern parts of the UK on Thursday, although with sunny spells too. Southern parts are likely to start drier, although the start of August looks likely to bring a transition towards less settled conditions across the UK, as rain or showers in the north spread south on Friday. Over the weekend and into the following week, it is likely to remain unsettled with showers or longer spells of rain and rather windy conditions affecting all areas at times. However, temperatures should be around normal for the time of year, and perhaps on the warm side in the south. There are indications that drier, sunnier periods may become more prevalent in the south later in the period.

UK Outlook for Sunday 10 Aug 2014 to Sunday 24 Aug 2014:

There is greater than average uncertainty concerning the weather through this period. Currently, generally unsettled conditions are likely to continue through the start of this period in the north with cloudy spells and sporadic outbreaks of rain, while the best of the drier, brighter conditions will be in the south and east. Temperatures should remain above average for southeastern parts, but near normal elsewhere.
