Updated: 02:52 on Wed 26 Jul 2017 BST

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Rain moving east with sunshine and some blustery showers following.

Today:

A band of wet and rather windy weather will move east across the British Isles, giving some heavy bursts of rain in the north. Brighter skies will follow to most parts later, but with blustery showers developing in the northwest.

Tonight:

Most southern and eastern areas will become dry with clear spells overnight. It will stay breezy everywhere though, and further blustery showers will feed in across the west and northwest.

Thursday:

It will be cool and breezy with sunshine and showers. The showers will be most frequent in the north and northwest. Heavy showers will affect England in the afternoon.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

Some sunny spells, although showers or longer spells of rain too, cool temperatures and brisk winds at times. Southern areas will see the most persistent rain, the northwest most showers.

Updated: 01:23 on Wed 26 Jul 2017 BST

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Sunday 30 Jul 2017 to Tuesday 8 Aug 2017:

A generally unsettled spell of weather is expected on Sunday and Monday with a mixture of sunshine and showers for most, and possibly a spell of more prolonged rain in the southeast. Heavy showers and strong winds are most likely in the north west with a risk of hail and thunder, however winds are likely to be lighter elsewhere. The unsettled regime looks set to continue until early August with further frontal systems affecting the UK, interspersed with clearer or perhaps showery weather and some unseasonably windy conditions across many areas. Temperatures should be around normal to cool, with perhaps only the far south east seeing some warmer conditions at times. There are no signals for any significant change from these unsettled conditions during the period.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 9 Aug 2017 to Wednesday 23 Aug 2017:

Changeable or unsettled conditions are likely at first with periods of rain interspersed with clearer or showery weather. There are some signals for high pressure to build which would allow for more settled conditions and rising temperatures, mostly likely in the south. By the middle of August signals become mixed and confidence is low. However, the preferred solution is for northwestern parts to stay largely changeable, with drier and brighter spells of weather becoming more prevalent in the southeast. That being said, all areas could see showers or longer spells of rain at times.
