    UK forecast for the next 5 days

    Rather unsettled for many; the southeast fine and warmer.

    This Evening and Tonight:

    Any showers easing, many parts turning dry with clear spells for a time, so it will be quite chilly in parts of the east and south again. Northwestern and western areas turning cloudy, wetter, windier but milder.


    Northwestern areas wet: heavy, persistent rain particularly for western Scotland, north of Glasgow. Many other western areas turning cloudy, damp and breezy but southern and eastern England fine and warmer.

    Outlook for Wednesday to Friday:

    Mostly cloudy in the west and north with outbreaks of rain, heavy at times, but also some drier brighter periods. Dry in the southeast with sunny spells, becoming very hot.

    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Saturday 8 Aug 2020 to Monday 17 Aug 2020:

    Over the weekend, there should be a good deal of sunny and very warm weather across the UK, with the hottest conditions likely to be in the southeast. Most places will be dry, although there is a small risk that some isolated thunderstorms may break out, especially across the south of the UK. Moving into the following week, a fair amount of dry, bright and warm weather looks likely for much of the UK with a possibility of some further very warm weather, especially in the southeast. More changeable, breezy interludes with some rain or showers are possible at times in the period, more especially for the northwest of the UK where temperatures will be nearer normal.

    UK Outlook for Tuesday 18 Aug 2020 to Tuesday 1 Sep 2020:

    This period is likely to see a mixture of dry and settled conditions, interspersed with occasional bouts of wetter and windier weather. The majority of the unsettled weather seems more likely to be in the northwest, with the south and southeast seeing the driest conditions. Temperatures will probably be around or slightly above the average for this time of year. There may be further short lived very warm spells, these more likely across the south or southeast. There are some tentative signs that conditions could become more widely dry and settled across the UK towards the end of the month.
