Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Monday 25 Jun 2018 to Wednesday 4 Jul 2018:

The final week of June will see plenty of dry and sunny weather across most of the UK, with only the far north and northwest seeing cloudier skies at times, with occasional rain. With the fine weather, temperatures will continue to rise for all parts, but especially so in the south where it could turn hot. The heat may spark an isolated thunderstorm although the majority will stay dry. As we head into the start of July confidence reduces, but most areas should continue to see plenty of fine, sunny and very warm weather. Northern and some western areas may begin to see cloudier conditions pushing in with the chance of some rain and stronger winds.

UK Outlook for Thursday 5 Jul 2018 to Thursday 19 Jul 2018:

Although confidence remains low through the first half of July, early indications bring a good deal of dry and settled weather across many parts of the UK. However, there are some signs that more changeable weather may develop at times, especially in the north and possibly the west potentially leading to cloud, stronger winds and some rain. Where the dry and settled weather continues it will remain very warm, especially in the south. Where it turns more changeable it will also become cooler.
