    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Sunday 10 Jul 2022 to Tuesday 19 Jul 2022:

    High pressure likely dominant across the south through this period with more mobile Atlantic flow across Scotland. Generally dry and fine for southern and eastern parts of the UK to start, with light winds and some lengthy spells of sunshine. Feeling warm or very warm, potentially hot in southern England and Wales. Cloudier in northwestern areas with fresh winds and periods of rain, mostly light, arriving on Sunday. Temperatures near normal here but feeling cool in the rain and cloud. Dry weather likely continuing for the south and southwest as we head further into July, though some showers still possible at times. Northern parts of the UK staying unsettled, these conditions perhaps becoming more widespread towards the end of the period and bringing cooler air further south.

    UK Outlook for Wednesday 20 Jul 2022 to Wednesday 3 Aug 2022:

    This period sees a weak signal for more settled conditions to extend more widely across the whole country again, though periods of cloud and rain still likely to be most prevalent in the northwest. Temperatures widely above average initially, especially across the south, and potentially very warm or hot at times, most likely for England and Wales. Temperatures perhaps returning closer to normal later in the period, but still likely to be warm to very warm at times in the south.
