Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Saturday 18 Aug 2018 to Monday 27 Aug 2018:

On Saturday bright and possibly showery conditions are likely prevail across the north, whilst southern and central areas are cloudier with some rain. Some heavier and more persistent rain may affect central and northern areas by Sunday, with the southeast staying largely dry. Windy at times, especially in the north. Into the following week it may be windy at times, with bands of rain moving southeast, but also brighter and drier interludes. The heaviest rain probably confined to the northwest, with the driest conditions in the southeast. It is likely to become generally drier, brighter and more settled later in the period, especially for southern parts of the UK. Temperatures close to or a little below average in the northwest, and generally warm in the southeast.

UK Outlook for Tuesday 28 Aug 2018 to Tuesday 11 Sep 2018:

During this period it looks likely that the weather pattern will only change very slowly. High pressure is likely to be dominating at the start of this period, with southern areas perhaps seeing the driest and brightest weather. Further outbreaks of rain and strong winds may move across the north, and perhaps sink southeastwards at times. Into September, confidence in the forecast decreases. However, we will probably see some longer dry and settled spells at times, these perhaps becoming more dominant in the north and northwest. Temperatures are likely to be generally warmer than average, but as we go into September there will an increasing chance of some chillier nights.
