Regional Forecast for South West England

Headline:

Warm and humid.

Today:

Southwest England will be humid and rather cloudy today, particularly in Cornwall and near Bristol Channel coasts. Sunny spells will develop in the east later, and especially in Dorset and east Devon. Where they do, it will become very warm. Maximum temperature 24 °C.

Tonight:

Most of the region will have a warm sunny evening followed by a humid night. Persistent low cloud and mist in Cornwall will produce patchy drizzle and spread further east. Minimum temperature 14 °C.

Wednesday:

Wednesday will be warm, bright and humid, though low cloud and fog around the coasts may spill over onto the land again. Light rain is likely in the evening. Maximum temperature 20 °C.

Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

The region will be dry and mostly sunny throughout. Thursday will feel fresher than recently but beyond that, it will warm up again as the breeze dies down.

Updated: 03:12 on Tue 19 Jun 2018 BST

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Warm/humid in the south, rain in the north later.

Today:

Southern and central England and Wales will be warm, humid and cloudy with fog around southwestern coasts. Sunny spells will develop inland later. The north will be brighter at first but rain will reach Northern Ireland and western Scotland later.

Tonight:

Much of England will have a warm sunny evening but low cloud and drizzle in Wales and southwest England will spread eastwards overnight. Rain in Northern Ireland/Scotland will drift southwards.

Wednesday:

A weakening band of rain will move southwards through Wales and central England, leaving brighter weather further north and showers in northern Scotland. The south will stay warm and humid.

Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

The coming days will be dry and mostly sunny, with showers confined to the far north. All areas will become warmer again after a cool breezy day on Thursday.

Updated: 03:11 on Tue 19 Jun 2018 BST

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Saturday 23 Jun 2018 to Monday 2 Jul 2018:

Saturday and Sunday will both be largely fine and dry days across much of the UK with plenty of warm sunshine in store. However it is likely to turn cloudier and breezier across northwestern parts with some outbreaks of rain possible at times, particularly on Sunday. During the last week of the month dry, fine and sometimes very warm weather is expected to continue in southern and central parts and this fine, settled weather is also expected for much of the week across northern parts of the country too. However, from time to tim conditions will become unsettled and generally cooler in the northwest with short-lived spells of rain or showers possible along with stronger winds.

UK Outlook for Tuesday 3 Jul 2018 to Tuesday 17 Jul 2018:

Although confidence is low as we head into July, early indications are that the first half of the month may well bring a good deal of dry and settled weather across the UK, particularly in southern and eastern parts, where temperatures are expected to be warm, and sometimes very warm. Northern and western areas are more likely to see changeable spells with showers and more persistent rain at times. During these changeable spells temperatures will be close to average for the time of year, but there will be some drier and warmer interludes here too.
