    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Saturday 9 Jul 2022 to Monday 18 Jul 2022:

    Generally fine and dry for southern and eastern parts of the UK to start, as high pressure extends to the southwest, though some showers are still possible. Cloud increases further northwest, with more showers and outbreaks of rain. Warm or very warm with light winds in the south, near-normal temperatures elsewhere, and moderate or fresh winds in the far north. It may become more widely settled across the UK for a time further into the period, although some northern areas likely to continue to see spells of rain or showers at times. Temperatures widely above average, especially across the south, with a possibility of very warm or hot spells at times for England and Wales.

    UK Outlook for Tuesday 19 Jul 2022 to Tuesday 2 Aug 2022:

    Higher pressure is likely to continue bringing generally fine and settled weather throughout the rest of July, which may extend more widely across the UK. However, we may see some less settled weather for a time at the start of this period, with northern areas likely to continue seeing showers, these extending further south at times. We may see some very warm or hot conditions at times, most likely for England and Wales. Temperatures perhaps returning closer to normal across the north and northwest later in the period.
