UK Outlook for Saturday 15 Aug 2020 to Monday 24 Aug 2020:

Warm or very warm for many through to the end of next week, although cooler and fresher conditions will gradually move in from the west. A mixture of sunny spells and showers is expected, with a risk of some heavy downpours and thunderstorms. Over the weekend and into the following week, more settled, drier conditions will probably become established, although some thundery showers may still affect the southeast at first and there is a chance of thicker cloud bringing outbreaks of rain to the northwest at times. Fog patches are possible overnight for many although these will quickly clear through the mornings. Temperatures are likely to be warm for most parts of the UK well into the middle of August.

UK Outlook for Tuesday 25 Aug 2020 to Tuesday 8 Sep 2020:

Confidence is low for this period. Northwestern areas of the UK will probably be changeable with periods of cloudy skies, outbreaks of rain and strengthening winds interspersed with drier, brighter spells. Further south and southeast it is likely to be drier and warmer with more in the way of sunshine. Hot conditions may affect the southeast at times, bringing a risk of thunderstorms which may spread further north at times. Towards the end of August and into early September, more changeable and cooler conditions may become more widely established across the UK as a whole.
