    Tonight:

    Showers continuing in places, especially in the north and towards western coasts. Showers probably merging into some longer spells of rain across parts of northern UK.

    Rain, heavy and persistent in places continuing across parts of Scotland. Elsewhere sunshine and showers, these heavy with possible thunder in some central areas. Cooler for most. Breezy in south.

    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Saturday 31 Jul 2021 to Monday 9 Aug 2021:

    It will remain changeable through much of this period, with most parts of the UK seeing a mixture of dry, sunny periods together with showers or some longer spells of rain at times. Over the coming weekend sunny spells and heavy showers are likely for many areas. Into early next week these showers will probably become confined to eastern and northern parts of the UK, with the driest conditions in the west and southwest. From the middle of next week onward, we will likely see a continuation of mixed conditions bringing sunny spells but also some heavy showers, perhaps with more prolonged periods of rain at times. Temperatures are expected to be around or just below average.

    UK Outlook for Tuesday 10 Aug 2021 to Tuesday 24 Aug 2021:

    Changeable conditions look likely to continue through the start of this period, with sunny spells mixed in with some showers at times or longer spells of rain, these more prevalent in the northwest. Although confidence in the detail is low, there are tentative signals suggesting that high pressure may become more dominant during the middle of August, bringing more settled, drier and warmer conditions for many. There would still be a risk of showers or thunderstorms at times. Temperatures are most likely to be above average.
