Regional Forecast for South West England

Headline:

A few showers, but otherwise dry, with temperatures rising again.

Today:

Generally rather cloudy to start, with the remnants of overnight showery rain petering out. Brighter for most by the afternoon, with the sunniest weather likely towards the coast. A scattering of showers will develop inland. Very warm once again. Maximum temperature 26 °C.

Tonight:

Any showers soon dying away, otherwise evening sunshine will give way to a dry night with clear spells and a few mist patches. Staying rather warm in towns and cities. Minimum temperature 14 °C.

Sunday:

Any early mist patches clearing, then a dry day across the region, with variable cloud and sunny periods. Temperatures up slightly on Saturday, and feeling increasingly humid. Maximum temperature 28 °C.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

A few showers possible early next week, but a lot more dry weather to come across southwest England. Hot and humid, especially in the east, with warm nights too.

Updated: 02:58 on Sat 21 Jul 2018 BST

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Increasingly humid this weekend. More hot weather next week.

Today:

A cloudy start for many, but it will brighten up with some sunshine by the afternoon. That said, a few showers are likely to break out, with the odd heavy one in the south. Hot again in the southeast.

Tonight:

Showers dying out to leave clear spells and a few mist patches across England and Wales. Damp across northern and western Scotland and Northern Ireland, with some hill fog.

Sunday:

Occasional rain in the northwest, with fog affecting some other western coasts and hills. Otherwise variable cloud and some sunshine, but an increasingly humid feel. Much warmer across eastern Scotland.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

Rain in the northwest will erratically move southeast. Northwest of this, turning brighter and fresher with a few showers. To the southeast, largely sunny and hot, but isolated thunderstorms developing.

Updated: 02:56 on Sat 21 Jul 2018 BST

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Thursday 26 Jul 2018 to Saturday 4 Aug 2018:

From Thursday and through the following weekend a west/east split in the weather is likely, with the west seeing cloudier, windier conditions with some rain at times, whilst central and eastern areas stay largely fine and settled, but with the risk of some thundery showers. Widely very warm or hot in the south and southeast, with warm and humid nights, whilst western areas may turn cooler and fresher later. 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'll be an ongoing risk of thunderstorms, particularly across central, southern 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 Sunday 5 Aug 2018 to Sunday 19 Aug 2018:

Throughout this period it seems most likely that the weather pattern will only change 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 above 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.
