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.
