    Low cloud should become more extensive in eastern parts into the evening, perhaps giving the odd spot of drizzle. Drier with clear spells further west. Mild, with light winds. Minimum Temperature 12 °C.


    Low cloud soon clearing to warm sunny spells. This is likely to spark some slow-moving heavy downpours in places later, perhaps thundery with hail. Light winds. Maximum Temperature 28 °C.

    Unsettled through this period, with showers and some longer spells of rain. Temperatures largely below average, in marked contrast to the week just gone.

    UK forecast for the next 5 days

    Heavy showers and thunderstorms over parts of southern England today.


    Many areas dry with plenty of sunshine, early cloud in some North Sea coastal areas clearing. Cloudier over southern UK with early patchy rain giving way to some heavy showers and thunderstorms later, mainly over East Anglia and southeast England.


    A fine end to Sunday for many but evening showers over southern UK only slowly fading for some. Dry for many overnight but turning cloudier in the north and east.


    Early cloud in some northern and eastern parts becoming confined to northern Scotland. Otherwise, sunny spells but inland also scattered showers during the afternoon. Hotter than Sunday.

    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Thursday 29 Jul 2021 to Saturday 7 Aug 2021:

    Remaining unsettled through much of this period, with most places seeing showers or rain at times. Heavy and persistent rain is likely across northern Scotland on Thursday and the rest of the UK could well see showers develop though the day, some heavy and possibly thundery at times. Conditions remain changeable with outbreaks of rain moving in from the west, and further thundery showers possible between any drier interludes. Stronger that average winds are expected for the time of year. From the end of next week until early August, we will likely see mixed conditions with sunny spells and heavy showers, perhaps with some more prolonged rain at times. Southwestern areas possibly staying driest whereas the northeast could be wetter than usual. Average temperatures are expected.

    UK Outlook for Sunday 8 Aug 2021 to Sunday 22 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.
