Any showers will ease this evening, with sunshine to end the day. Some low cloud may affect western areas overnight, perhaps with a few light showers towards dawn. Minimum temperature 8 °C.
Sunny spells will develop during the morning. However, it will turn cloudier later in the day as winds strengthen, bringing rain in the west towards dusk. Maximum temperature 23 °C.
Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:
Low cloud may linger along coasts Monday, but Tuesday will be sunnier. It will become very warm, and perhaps hot in the east, although thunderstorms will be possible into Wednesday.
UK long range weather forecast
A cold front is likely to make some progress eastwards across the UK on Thursday, with the potential for heavy showers and thunderstorms. Some hot or very hot conditions may persist in the east ahead of this, especially in the southeast. Into the weekend, confidence falls low, but following the cold front, fresher conditions will be the most likely. A northwest to southeast split will be the most likely scenario. The northwest is likely to see further spells of rain and strong winds at times, with temperatures near or a little below average. The south and southeast are likely to see localised heavy rain, with thunderstorms possible, but it will stay warm or very warm into the start of August.
As we move into early August, the final month of the meteorological summer, confidence is low in the forecast with no one single weather pattern looking to dominate. It is most likely that low pressure to the north and northwest of the UK will give further rise to showers or longer spells of rain in the northwest, with the better chance of drier weather in the southeast. Temperatures will likely be above average, perhaps mostly in western and southern areas. However, confidence falls as we head through August.
