Week 2

Changeable but perhaps drier and warmer periods in the south.

Bank Holiday Monday is expected to be cool and showery. During the rest of the week it remains changeable with a risk of rain at times but also dry and sunny periods, with the best of them in the south. There is a moderate chance of it becoming very warm in the south at times.

Forecast confidence is moderate.


During the first week of the forecast period the UK remains under an Atlantic flow. The remnants of Hurricane Gert track to the northwest and the embedded tropical air brings higher temperatures to southern and central areas for a time. Disturbances in the flow are expected to bring a very mixed Bank Holiday weekend.

During the second week a continuation of the changeable Atlantic driven theme is likely in the north of the UK. In the south high pressure could become more influential leading to a chance of warmer incursions.
