Weather Forecast Summary: Headline:
Persistent rain through today easing overnight and into tomorrow.
Weather Forecast for Today:
A largely dull and damp start, apart from the north, however rain will soon spread northwards to leave all with a rather wet day. Breezy, particularly over the hills, where low cloud will lead to patchy hill fog. Feeling chilly. Maximum Temperature 14C.
Weather for Tonight:
Rain will continue through this evening and overnight, turning persistent over the hills, before gradually easing in the south as winds ease. Minimum Temperature 11C.
Weather Outlook for Thursday:
Remaining rather cloudy through Thursday with overnight persistent rain gradually clearing to leave a drier afternoon, although there will still be some light rain in places. Feeling warmer. Maximum Temperature 19C.
Outlook for Friday to Sunday:
Some further outbreaks of rain through Friday, before an improving picture for the weekend as it turns drier and brighter with a keen westerly breeze, though some rain Saturday night.
UK Outlook for Monday 3 Jul 2017 to Wednesday 12 Jul 2017:
Next week should get off to a dry start for much of the UK, though some rain may spread in from the southwest and there is a low risk of thundery outbreaks towards the southeast by mid-week. Thereafter there is some uncertainty but at the moment it looks set to turn more changeable, especially across northwestern parts where some wet and windy weather is likely. Towards the south and east it should be drier and brighter though there is still the risk of thundery rain at times here. Temperatures will remain generally around average for the time of year, but there is an increasing chance of a very warm spell, most likely towards the southeast.
UK Outlook for Thursday 13 Jul 2017 to Thursday 27 Jul 2017:
Further changeable weather is likely at first, especially in the north with some rain. In the south the drier and warmer spells are likely to become more prevalent, and these could well spread across the rest of the UK through much of July.
