    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Saturday 21 Jul 2018 to Monday 30 Jul 2018:

    On Saturday and Sunday the north of the UK may have cloudier and breezier conditions with some outbreaks of rain or showers, while further south there will be a good deal of dry and fine weather, with a good deal of sunshine in the south. Temperatures will be warm for many, probably very warm in the south and becoming rather humid, especially at night. Through the following week generally fine and very warm weather will predominate in the south and much of the east, perhaps becoming hot, but always with the risk of isolated showers or thunderstorms. Further north and west it may be more changeable and breezy with outbreaks of rain or showers, but with temperatures warm for much of the time.

    UK Outlook for Tuesday 31 Jul 2018 to Tuesday 14 Aug 2018:

    Throughout this period it seems most likely that there will be a continuing northwest / southeast split in the weather. Southeastern parts are most likely to see periods of dry and warm weather, with brief interludes of more showery conditions. Some very warm or hot spells could develop in the south at times, but these would bring an increased risk of thunderstorms. Meanwhile further northwest, any settled weather will probably be shorter lived, with rain or showers at times, but also some drier and sunnier spells. Temperatures are expected to continue above average, with some warm or very warm spells possible outside of any persistent showers or rain.
