    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Tuesday 21 Aug 2018 to Thursday 30 Aug 2018:

    On Tuesday northwestern areas will be cloudy and windy with outbreaks of rain, but with clearer conditions reaching the far northwest later. Elsewhere it will be drier with bright spells, and it will be warm and humid in the southeast. By Wednesday some rain may reach southern areas, but clearer weather should spread from the northwest by the end of the day. Through the rest of the week and weekend there will probably be a good deal of dry, bright or sunny weather, especially in the south, while the far west and northwest will have some thicker cloud and rain at times. This weather pattern is quite likely to continue through the rest of the period, with temperatures probably around normal, but perhaps rather cool in the north and northwest

    UK Outlook for Friday 31 Aug 2018 to Friday 14 Sep 2018:

    During this period it looks likely that the weather pattern will only change slowly. Areas of high pressure and associated settled weather are likely to dominate across the south and southeast, bringing generally dry and bright weather here. More changeable conditions with outbreaks of rain and strong winds are likely across the north and northwest, perhaps extending southeastwards at times. Into September, confidence in the forecast decreases. However, we will probably see longer dry and settled spells at times, these perhaps becoming more dominant than previously in the north and northwest. Temperatures by day are likely to be generally warmer than average, but there will an increasing chance of chillier nights.
