UK long range weather forecast
Plenty of dry weather with a good deal of sunshine continuing for most. An area of showers likely moving in from the southwest. These possibly heavy and thundery at times, perhaps most likely across the south and west. This area likely to make progress northeasterly across much of the UK through the weekend but low confidence around exact details of this progression, plus the degree of activity. Temperatures generally widely very warm, locally hot, and becoming humid especially in the south and southeast. Winds generally light or moderate for most areas. Later, most likely plenty of fine and settled weather with sunny and clear conditions for many parts. Likely to be warmer than normal for much of the UK. Risk of showers, possibly heavy and thundery, especially in southern parts.
More likely continuation of the fine and settled weather with a risk of showers through mid-July. High pressure re-orientate to lie near the southwest with low to the north. This brings a greater chance of rain to the west and northwest. Most likely temperatures trending back towards average or above. Very unlikely to be cooler than normal. · Low confidence in detail, as is often the case in summer.
