UK long range weather forecast

Remaining unsettled through much of this period, with most places seeing showers to longer spells of rain at times. These changeable conditions bringing outbreaks of rain and variable cloud amounts from the west, with the chance of heavy showers, perhaps thundery at times between any drier and sunnier interludes. Winds, at times becoming strong and blustery adding to the cool feel. From the end of next week through early August, we will likely see a continuation of mixed conditions bringing sunny spells and heavy showers, perhaps with some more prolonged rain at times. Southwestern areas possibly staying driest whereas the northeast may be wetter than usual. Temperatures are expected to be around or just below average.


Changeable conditions look likely to continue through the start of this period, with sunny spells mixed in with some showers at times or longer spells of rain, these more prevalent in the northwest. Although confidence in the detail is low, there are tentative signals suggesting that high pressure may become more dominant during the middle of August, bringing more settled, drier and warmer conditions for many. There would still be a risk of showers or thunderstorms at times. Temperatures are most likely to be above average.
