    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Monday 15 Aug 2022 to Wednesday 24 Aug 2022:

    This period will see the breakdown of the hot, sunny and dry weather of recent days, with conditions becoming more unsettled across the UK. Showers will spread from the west and south next week, sometimes heavy and thundery, though drier periods with sunny spells are still likely between them. At the same time, temperatures will gradually decrease to closer to normal for August. Later in the period, the more changeable weather will prevail with a risk of heavy showers or thunderstorms continuing, but clear and dry spells in between too. Returning to warm or very warm towards the end of the period for much of England and Wales, perhaps becoming locally hot in parts of the south and southeast.

As we head into September, spells of rain or showers are likely, with the most widespread of these in the north and west. However, periods of dry and sunny weather can still be expected in between. Temperatures are likely to be above average, with the occasional chance of very warm spells.
