    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Sunday 24 Jun 2018 to Tuesday 3 Jul 2018:

    Sunday and Monday will both be largely fine and dry days across much of the UK, with plenty of warm sunshine in store. It is however likely to turn cloudier and breezier across northwestern parts with some outbreaks of rain possible at times, and temperatures here will be nearer the seasonal average. During the last week of the month dry, fine and very warm, sometimes hot, weather is expected to continue in southern and central parts and this fine, settled weather is also expected for much of the week across northern parts of the country too. From time to time however, conditions will become unsettled and generally cooler in the north or northwest, with short-lived spells of rain or showers possible along with stronger winds.

    UK Outlook for Wednesday 4 Jul 2018 to Wednesday 18 Jul 2018:

    Although confidence is low for the start of July, early indications are that the first half of the month may well bring a good deal of dry and settled weather for many areas across the UK. In southern and eastern parts temperatures are expected to be warm, and sometimes very warm. Northern and western areas are more likely to see changeable spells though, with showers and more persistent rain at times. During these changeable spells temperatures will be close to average for the time of year, but there will be some drier and warmer interludes here too.
