    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Wednesday 25 Jul 2018 to Friday 3 Aug 2018:

    A good deal of fine, settled weather for most, particularly at first, with sunny spells and light winds, but with the risk of some thundery showers, especially in the southeast. Increasing threat of some organised rain spreading into western areas. Staying very warm, locally hot in the south. Looking further ahead a west-east split in conditions is likely to develop, with eastern and southeastern areas probably drier, more settled, very warm and increasingly humid, but always with the risk of isolated showers and thunderstorms. Further west it may be more changeable and breezy with some outbreaks of rain or showers, but also some drier and brighter interludes. Temperatures nearer normal in the west, but generally very warm elsewhere, with hot or very hot conditions at times, especially in the southeast.

    UK Outlook for Saturday 4 Aug 2018 to Saturday 18 Aug 2018:

    Throughout this period it seems most likely that the weather pattern will only evolve very slowly. 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 in the 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, especially in the southeast. Temperatures are likely to be often nearer normal in the west and northwest.
