    UK Outlook for Wednesday 17 Aug 2022 to Friday 26 Aug 2022:

    A generally unsettled start to the period for many with a risk of some prolonged heavy or thundery showers in the south and east. In contrast, the north is expected to see more settled conditions with a fair amount of cloud. The southwest may experience the best of any sunshine, while areas of more persistent yet lighter rain are likely in the northwest. Into the weekend, periods of rain will alternate with drier and clearer weather. Any prolonged rain is expected to occur across the northern parts. Temperatures likely near normal at first, but becoming rather warm again further into the period, especially in the south. Unsettled conditions will continue to dominate for most towards the end of the period.
