Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Friday 22 Jun 2018 to Sunday 1 Jul 2018:

Friday is expected to be a largely fine and dry day across the UK with plenty of warm sunshine. It is also likely to be less humid than recent days have been. However as we head into the weekend it may turn cloudier and breezier across northwestern parts with some outbreaks of rain possible at times. 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, at times conditions will become unsettled and rather cold in the northwest with short-lived spells of rain or showers possible along with stronger winds.

UK Outlook for Monday 2 Jul 2018 to Monday 16 Jul 2018:

Early indications are that the first half of July 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 too.
