UK long range weather forecast
Once showers have cleared from the east coast on Thursday morning, a split in the weather across the UK is likely, with dry and sunny conditions prevailing across southeastern areas, though with lower temperatures than of late. In the northwest, though, conditions will be cloudier showers or longer periods of rain. The wind may be strong at times too, with temperatures here closer to average. Over next weekend, and the following week, it will probably be fairly unsettled nationwide. The heavier rain is most likely in the northwest, with southeastern parts receiving the longest dry and sunny spells. There is a risk of thundery showers breaking out across the southeast at times. Temperatures will vary around normal, with a possibility of futher warm spells.
There are signals that changes in the weather patterns across the UK will become slow during this spell. At present it is considered that the predominate weather type will be unsettled conditions, leading to an increase in the chance for above average rainfall through September. However, more settled conditions are likely at times, especially around the middle of September, with temperatures likely to be near to or slightly above normal for the time of year.
