Updated: 03:30 on Fri 20 Jul 2018 BST

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Thunderstorms in the southeast. Rain in the northwest moving southeastwards.

Today:

Apart from a few showers or thunderstorms in Kent and East Sussex, the southeast will stay dry initially, but increasing heat will trigger hit-and-miss thunderstorms more widely later. Rain in the northwest will push into south Wales and the Midlands.

Tonight:

Heavy showers in the southeast will continue this evening but ease overnight. Patchy rain will persist in northern and western parts of the UK, including heavy bursts in the southwest.

Saturday:

Saturday will start cloudy, but brighten up later. It will become hot and humid in the south and east, setting off a few heavy showers in some places.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Mostly dry and warm; hot and humid in the south and east. Often cloudy and breezy in the northwest, with rain moving slowly southeastwards at times.

Updated: 02:58 on Fri 20 Jul 2018 BST

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Tuesday 24 Jul 2018 to Thursday 2 Aug 2018:

On Tuesday and Wednesday the northwest of the UK is likely to see cloudier conditions with some rain and drizzle at times, especially across western hills. Elsewhere it should be largely dry with sunny spells and light winds, chiefly across the east and southeast, with perhaps the odd thunderstorm. Looking further ahead a west-east split in conditions is likely to develop, with eastern and southeastern areas being drier, more settled, very warm and increasingly humid, but always with the risk of isolated showers or thunderstorms. Further west it may be more changeable and breezy with some outbreaks of rain or showers, but also some drier interludes. Temperatures nearer normal in the west, but generally warm elsewhere, with hot or very hot conditions at times in the east and southeast.

UK Outlook for Friday 3 Aug 2018 to Friday 17 Aug 2018:

Throughout this period it seems most likely that the weather pattern will very slowly evolve. The west of the UK is likely to see more in the way of breezier, cloudier conditions with some rain or showers at times, with these occasionally affecting other areas. Elsewhere, especially further east, drier and more settled weather is expected to dominate, although with the ongoing risk of a few heavy showers or thunderstorms breaking out at times. Temperatures remaining above average for most, with the potential for further spells of very warm or hot conditions, and possibly very hot at times in the south and east. Temperatures are likely to be often nearer normal in the west and northwest.
