    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Friday 1 Jul 2022 to Sunday 10 Jul 2022:

    There will be sunny spells for many with a few scattered showers at the beginning of July, some of which will be locally heavy and possibly thundery across Scotland. Winds are expected to be light generally but moderate at times, especially in the northwest and near heavy showers. The unsettled conditions are likely to be confined to the north of the country as we move further through the period, perhaps bringing some longer spells of rain to this region. Many eastern and southern areas likely to stay drier, although with the risk of showers remaining. Temperatures are expected to be close to or slightly below normal in the north but above normal in the south.

    UK Outlook for Monday 11 Jul 2022 to Monday 25 Jul 2022:

    There is a good chance of more settled conditions prevailing through the middle and later parts of July, although some northern areas may see spells of rain or showers at times, especially early in the period. These spells could extend across the country at times, but in general the south will see the best of the settled conditions. Temperatures are likely to be close to or a little above average initially but trending towards widely warm conditions later, especially across the south.
