UK long range weather forecast

Remaining unsettled into the new week and for the rest of this period. To start, spells of locally heavy rain across the far northwest, while all other areas see a mixture of sunshine and scattered showers on Monday. Downpours can possibly be quite heavy, with risks of hail and thunderstorms in the west. Winds fresh to strong across much of the UK, with potential for gales at first in the north and west, becoming confined to the northwest later. Temperatures nearer average to rather warm, bar the far north which is likely to still feel rather cold, to begin the week. A return to near to below-average temperatures thereafter with the ongoing unsettled weather of mixed showers or longer spells of rain and strong winds.


Confidence is low for this outlook, with weakening signals from global weather drivers. A mixture of sunny spells and showers is likely, especially at first, with areas in the south experiencing the most settled and dry conditions through this period. Towards the north and northwest there is an increased chance of unsettled weather as longer spells of rain and strong winds arrive from the Atlantic at times. Temperatures likely to be around average.
