    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Saturday 26 Jun 2021 to Monday 5 Jul 2021:

    Saturday will likely start cloudy in the south with outbreaks of light, patchy rain tending to brighten up through the day, however with a risk of heavy showers during the afternoon. Elsewhere will likely be dry with some sunny spells, light winds and temperatures mostly near normal. Then, predominantly dry weather is likely, but with briefly more unsettled spells of rain or showers for southern and eastern parts, alongside more prolonged rain for the northwest of the UK. Winds are most likely remaining light to moderate throughout, with temperatures at or slightly above average for the time of year. Confidence decreases later into the period, however, there's a chance of high pressure building for a time, likely bringing further periods of settled weather interspersed with brief more unsettled spells.

    UK Outlook for Tuesday 6 Jul 2021 to Tuesday 20 Jul 2021:

    Confidence remains low for this period, but it is possible that periods of generally settled conditions will continue, these interspersed with some briefly unsettled spells at times. Most of the rainfall from fronts moving into the country will be over northern parts of the UK. Temperatures will probably remain around average for this time of the year, with many areas seeing warm weather.
