UK long range weather forecast

Likely still some showers for some parts of the country at the start of the period but generally from the middle of next week a more widespread dry spell of weather is likely to develop. This would see increasing amounts of sunshine. Temperatures most likely trending above average though still with chilly nights at times. However, there is a lower probability and conditions turning colder with easterly winds. Some rain will be remain possible at times, though this will probably be confined to western parts of the UK. Towards mid-month conditions will probably start to turn more unsettled again, especially across the south, where rain and showers could become frequent and heavy at times. Northern areas more likely to have further decent spells of fine, dry weather.

Updated:

During the rest of the month, there is an increase in the chance of blocking patterns, with winds blowing more frequently from the north and east than is usual. At this time of year, winds from this direction can still bring wintry hazards, such as snow and ice, but the risk of these is likely to decrease as the month progresses. The wettest conditions are most likely to be in the south, with northern areas drier overall. Overall temperatures are more likely to be near or below average, though some warmer days are still possible at times.
