UK long range weather forecast

Sunny spells and showers, some of which could be heavy and thundery, are expected across many parts of the UK on Saturday, together with below average temperatures. By Sunday drier weather is likely to develop, with spells of sunshine across most parts and temperatures close to normal. It is uncertain how long this mainly dry spell will last, but into the following week a more changeable pattern will probably become established. This is likely to see showers or longer spells of rain, some of which could be heavy and thundery, interspersed with some intervals of dry, bright weather. Regional details are uncertain, but the wettest weather will probably be across northern and western areas, with the south and east drier. Temperatures will probably be close to average or slightly above.

Updated:

No single weather type is expected to dominate through this period. Some spells of dry, settled weather will likely alternate with wetter, cloudier conditions at times. The wettest conditions will probably be in the northwest, with the southeast tending to be driest. Through the period as a whole, warmer than average conditions are more probable, perhaps with some short-lived hot spells.
