Regional Forecast for Yorkshire & Humber

Headline:

Rather cloudy, damp and windy, but improving later.

Today:

A cloudy, damp and windy start, however conditions should improve as the day progresses, with rain soon becoming light and intermittent and winds also easing. Cloud cover is likely to remain fairly extensive throughout, with some limited late brighter intervals. Maximum temperature 21 °C.

Tonight:

Becoming generally dry during the evening, with cloud also beginning to develop breaks to give overnight clear spells. Becoming cooler by dawn than recent nights. Minimum temperature 12 °C.

Monday:

A dry day for most with plenty of sunny spells, although cloud amounts may increase later, bringing the odd fleeting light shower, mainly in the south. Maximum temperature 24 °C.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

High uncertainty for the period. Tuesday rather warm and humid with some sunshine, with some rain then likely making erratic progress southeast later Wednesday into Thursday, introducing fresher, brighter conditions.

Updated: 02:10 on Sun 19 Aug 2018 BST

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Rain clearing east. Staying mostly cloudy.

Today:

Heavy rain will clear northern England and southern and eastern Scotland through the morning. A cloudy day for many, with a few light showers. However, some sunshine will develop during the afternoon, sunniest across northwest Scotland. Feeling warm and humid.

Tonight:

Cloudy for many with a few spots of drizzle. Low cloud and hill fog in places too. A mild night, but turning cool under clearer skies across northern Scotland.

Monday:

Mostly cloudy, but some bright or sunny breaks developing. Again, little drizzle or a few light showers are possible. Staying humid and feeling very warm in the south.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

Humid for most parts and feeling very warm in any sunshine, with warm nights too. Rain in the northwest will slowly move southeastward Wednesday and Thursday, with fresher conditions following.

Updated: 01:53 on Sun 19 Aug 2018 BST

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Thursday 23 Aug 2018 to Saturday 1 Sep 2018:

Thursday is likely to see a fresher day across the UK with a mixture of sunshine and showers. Frontal cloud and rain may linger across southern England for a time but should clear the UK completely by the end of the day. Some good spells of sunshine developing across the south with occasional heavy, blustery showers in the north. Through the rest of the week and weekend there will probably be a good deal of dry, bright or sunny weather, especially in the south, while the far west and northwest will have some thicker cloud and rain at times. This weather pattern is quite likely to continue through the rest of the period, with temperatures probably around normal, but perhaps rather cool in the north and northwest.

UK Outlook for Sunday 2 Sep 2018 to Sunday 16 Sep 2018:

During this period it looks likely that the weather pattern will only change slowly. Areas of high pressure and associated settled weather are likely to dominate across the south and southeast, bringing generally dry and bright weather here. More changeable conditions with outbreaks of rain and strong winds are likely across the north and northwest, perhaps extending southeastwards at times. Through September, confidence in the forecast decreases. However, we will probably see longer dry and settled spells at times, these perhaps becoming more dominant than previously in the north and northwest. Temperatures by day are likely to be generally warmer than average, but there will be an increasing chance of chillier nights.
