UK Outlook for Friday 27 Jul 2018 to Sunday 5 Aug 2018:
From Friday and through the following weekend a west/east split in the weather is expected, with cloudier, windier conditions in the west and northwest with some outbreaks of rain. In the east and southeast there'll still be some fine and sunny conditions, but with a risk of thundery showers moving north. Widely very warm or hot in the south and southeast, with warm and humid nights, whilst western areas may turn cooler. Through the rest of the period there'll be plenty of fine weather, but occasional rain in the west may spread to other parts at times, and there's an ongoing risk of thunderstorms, particularly across central and southeast England. Temperatures generally very warm away from the west, with hot or very hot conditions at times, especially in the southeast.
UK Outlook for Monday 6 Aug 2018 to Monday 20 Aug 2018:
Throughout this period it seems most likely that the weather pattern will change only very slowly. Western and southern areas will often be dry, sunny and very warm, but with the risk of some cloudier periods with rain at times, or heavy showers and thunderstorms. Further north and east drier and more settled conditions are expected to be more dominant, although with the ongoing risk of heavy showers and thunderstorms breaking out at times. Temperatures remaining widely above average for most, with further spells of very warm or hot conditions probable, and possible very hot conditions at times, especially in the southeast.
