    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Tuesday 23 Aug 2022 to Thursday 1 Sep 2022:

    The very start of this period will see most areas experiencing rather cloudy conditions and perhaps some rain or drizzle spreading from the southwest. The east and southeast are more likely to be drier on Tuesday, with stronger winds and showers in the north and northwest. From then, there looks to be a change to more settled conditions with the best of any sunshine in the southeast. A northwest/southeast temperature split may also develop, whereby cooler polar air will characterise the north, with the south experiencing warmer air from the continent. By the end of this period, fine, dry weather is likely to prevail for many. Light winds are likely with plenty of sunshine, and temperatures generally warm or locally very warm.

    UK Outlook for Friday 2 Sep 2022 to Friday 16 Sep 2022:

    After generally settled weather for the end of August, September brings more widely unsettled conditions across the UK. The weather may continue to become more changeable through the early weeks, seeing average conditions for this time of year. Temperatures are likely to be warm, and to remain warm throughout this period.
