UK long range weather forecast
There will be showers in the north on Tuesday, with fine and dry conditions in the south. Most of the UK is likely to have some warm sunshine over the next few days, though it is not expected to be as hot as this week. It will be often dry and sunny for many eastern and southern areas, with the cloudiest conditions and likelihood of spells of rain across the north and northwest. Into next weekend confidence falls low. However, the most likely scenario is for mainly dry, bright and warm weather to continue, with warm temperatures mostly in the south and east but some cool nights will be possible too. Short-lived wetter and windier weather will also be likely at times, mainly in the north or northwest.
Dry, bright and often warm weather is the most likely scenario for the first few days of this period. This could well continue later into July, perhaps with some hot weather spreading from the continent at times. However, the situation is very uncertain by then. If blocked high pressure were to be displaced significantly to the west or the east of the UK, we could end up with some changeable weather with significant rainfall at times.
