Thursday 9 Jul - Saturday 18 Jul

Through Thursday and Friday it will most probably be cloudy and fairly windy with an area of rain pushing northeast across the UK. Looking further ahead, a north/ south split across the UK seems most likely. Northern and northwestern areas are expected to see further spells of rain, accompanied by strong winds, with the possibility of these spreading to some other areas at times. Further south however, there should be more in the way of dry weather, though even here, there is still the possibility of some showers, or longer spells of rain. Temperatures are likely to be either around or on the warmer side of average, with the warmest conditions likely in the southeast.

Sunday 19 Jul - Sunday 2 Aug

Although confidence remains low throughout this period, the preferred scenario favours a more settled regime. There should be plenty of dry, fine weather around, though there is still the risk of occasional bouts of rain and strong winds. Such spells are mostly likely across the north and west, but they could spread to other areas at times. Temperatures generally around average, with any periods of particularly warm weather most likely being short-lived.

Sunday 12 Jul - Tuesday 21 Jul

Through the majority of this period, it will be mostly dry and settled for many areas, especially in the south of the UK. More unsettled conditions with spells of rain and strong winds may affect the north and northwest at times. These unsettled conditions could spread to other parts of the UK later in this period, but widespread unsettled conditions are unlikely. Temperatures are likely to be mostly around normal, although it may become warm for a time in the south and perhaps very warm in the southeast. Towards the end of the period, conditions may start to trend towards more generally settled weather for most areas, but with the possibility of the occasional bout of wetter weather.

Summary

Changeable weather for July with a few dry spells

_________________________________

Wednesday 8 July – Sunday 12 July

Wet in the south, drier in the north. Cool

The rest of this week will see a north-south split in the weather across the UK. Low pressure tracks will drift across southern areas and keep Wales and the southern half of England grey and wet through Friday. Lows will tend to be on the weaker side though, so it should not be too windy, and rain is not expected to be particularly heavy. Thursday and into Friday the weak low crossing the country will be the remnants of Tropical Storm Edouard. 

While the system in over England on Thursday it will be quite weak but bring plenty of rain to the Midlands and southern England. However, once it moves offshore into the North Sea on Friday it will pick up steam and bring some heavier showers and stronger winds for Friday afternoon to eastern England. At the same time southern areas are seeing a dull, wet end to the working week, northern areas will see sunny spells, light winds, and scattered afternoon showers developing over hilly areas. 

On Friday as the remnants of Edouard move away, afternoon showers will likely turn heavy and thundery for some areas in northern England and Scotland. Across the UK this week, temperatures will be cooler than normal for July with a more polar airmass overhead. As we head into the weekend high pressure will build in from the southwest and dry things out for most. This will bring in a warmer, more tropical airmass as well, so temperatures will begin to recover. North-western and northern Scotland is the main exception here as a wetter weekend is expected due to a weak front.

Monday 13 July – Sunday 19 July

Alternating dry periods and wet, breezy spells

High pressure that builds into the UK over this coming weekend will persist through much of next week, keeping things dry and fine for much of the country. Temperatures will continue to recover from the cool spell this week and likely tend to be above average for the southern half of the country. A few weak fronts will flirt with the extreme northern fringes of Scotland at times, so it will be a bit cloudier and wetter here, but the vast majority of the UK will have a mostly sunny and dry week. 

There is a risk that around midweek we could see some heat reach into the southern parts of England, especially the southeast. However, this is still only a risk at the moment and while we expect some warmer than normal weather, we do not expect a heatwave. Heading into the weekend high pressure will likely begin to break down and shift east, allowing some low pressure systems to reach into the UK from the northwest. Temperatures will begin to return to near normal, and perhaps become a bit cool for Scotland, while things turn wetter in northern and western areas. However, confidence is a bit lower than usual for the medium range as some tropical cyclones in the Atlantic are leading to some higher volatility in the computer models.

Monday 20 July – Sunday 2 August

Changeable, but turning dry and warm into August

Confidence has dropped a bit for the forecast for late July as the long range computer models are struggling to handle the increased tropical cyclone activity in the Atlantic. Overall, the pattern should see high pressure to the south and extending into Central Europe with low pressure tracks to the north of the UK and into Scandinavia. We expect some alternating wet and dry spells, but northern areas will tend to be more consistently wet and cloudy. 

With high pressure nearby to the south, ridges will move in between fronts and provide a few dry and more settled days before the next front arrives. Southern areas will likely stay mostly dry with fronts off to the north. This will also bring in a warmer southerly flow to much of the UK, so temperatures are likely to be near or above normal for the warmest air in the south. Scotland, however, will likely be near or a bit below average with fronts more frequently bringing in cooler northwest winds. 

As we head into late July and early August, we expect low pressure tracks will dip a bit further south while high pressure remains nearby to the south. This will be a windier patter most, and a wetter pattern for northern and eastern areas. Temperatures will tend to be near normal overall, but with a lot of variability day-to-day. Some records continue to be broken for early tropical storm formation this year in the Atlantic, and these weather systems tend to have a big impact on European weather and wreak havoc on the long range computer models.
The main risk to this forecast is that high pressure is more influential through late July, bringing some warmer and drier weather more consistently.

Further ahead

We will keep an eye on the tropical cyclones in the Atlantic and see if we can trust the computer models more next time.

Summary

Changeable weather through July

_________________________________

Saturday 11 July – Sunday 19 July

A drier, finer weekend, but fronts threaten later

After a series of unsettled weekends over the past month, high pressure will finally give a few drier, finer days this weekend. Much of the UK should see some decent sunny spells, with just some fair weather cloud bubbling up through the day. However, Northern Ireland and Scotland will often be cloudier this weekend, with a front moving in from the west on Sunday.
This will bring some rain, mostly light, to Northern Ireland and northwest Scotland later on Sunday, before giving patchy rain to the rest of Scotland on Sunday night. This front will then progress southeastwards through Monday, introducing cloudier skies and some outbreaks of rain across the UK as it does so, though not reaching southern England until Monday evening or overnight, by which point the front will have just some patchy light rain on it.

Tuesday will then be a cloudy day across the board, with more frontal rain moving in from the northwest into Northern Ireland and Scotland. Beyond Tuesday, there is considerable uncertainty in the forecast. Most likely is that there is a marked north-south split in the weather through the rest of the week and into next weekend. High pressure will often be overhead or nearby to the south, whilst low pressure will often be to the north of Scotland. This will bring some rain and breezy conditions to Scotland and Northern Ireland at times, whilst England and Wales should stay largely dry and settled. Meanwhile, with the high pressure over the south, there is a chance of a few warmer, sunnier days later in the week.

Monday 20 July – Sunday 26 July

Wet and breezy at times, mainly in the north

Heading deeper into July, a north-south split in the weather looks possible. In the north, it is likely that fronts will edge in from the Atlantic at times, bringing intermittent spells of wet and breezy weather to Scotland and Northern Ireland. With cooler northwesterly winds following on behind the fronts, temperatures in Scotland will likely trend close to, or a little below, the seasonal average.

Meanwhile, high pressure is expected to be to the south of the British Isles through this period, and this should extend northwards into the south of the UK. As a result, southern and central parts of England and Wales should see many dry, settled days, and with temperatures close to, or slightly above, average. However, there is a risk of deeper low pressure systems tracking close to the UK, to give a more widespread wet and windy week across the board. This alternative scenario is partly dependent on the developments of tropical storms in the western Atlantic, which may help to bring low pressure systems towards the UK.

Monday 27 July – Sunday 9 August

Changeable, with alternating dry and wet spells

As we head into late July and early August, we expect low pressure tracks to dip a bit further south, whilst high pressure remains to the south of us. With the threat of low pressure systems, this period may well turn out cooler, wetter and windier than average for the time of year. Temperatures will tend to be near normal overall, but with a lot of variability day-to-day.
However, confidence in the forecast is rather low.

Records continue to be broken for early tropical storm formation in the Atlantic this year, and these weather systems tend to have a big impact on European weather and wreak havoc on the long range computer models. The main risk to the forecast is that high pressure becomes more influential into August, bringing some warmer and drier weather more consistently.

Further ahead

We will take the forecast further into the final month of summer, and see if there are any signs of a prolonged period of dry, warm and sunny weather. Will August see the hottest temperature of the year?

Thursday 16 Jul - Saturday 25 Jul

Through the beginning of the period, it will be mostly dry and settled for many areas, especially in the south of the UK.

There is chance that these wetter interludes could spread more widely and affect much of the UK. Temperatures are likely to be mostly around normal, although it may become warm for a time in the south and perhaps very warm in the southeast. Towards the end of the period, more settled conditions are likely to develop, across many parts. Spells of wetter and windier weather are possible across northern and western areas at times.

Summary

Changeable weather through July and into August

_________________________________

Wednesday 15 July – Sunday 19 July

A north-south split with wet weather for Scotland

For the rest of the working week and into the start of the coming weekend the UK will see a bit of a north-south split in the weather. This is due to a ridge of high pressure that is building in from the southwest, bringing some drier and brighter weather to southern areas. However, a stronger-than-normal low pressure system for July will track near Iceland and bring some outbreaks of rain to northern areas. This will mainly impact Scotland and Northern Ireland.

As the ridge builds in on Wednesday and Thursday, a weak warm front will be pushed through Scotland and bring some bands of rain to northern areas and perhaps into the Midlands as well. Rain will tend to be light and patchy though. By Thursday night and into Friday, a cold front will stall over northern Scotland and just to the north of Northern Ireland, bringing some heavy rain for a time. Southern areas will stay dry and see some decent clear spells and some slightly warmer than normal air.

Into the weekend, high pressure will decline and retreat into the Atlantic, allowing the cold front to drift southeast into England and Wales. However, at this point, the front will tend to be a weak feature. Some patches of light rain are likely, but many areas will stay dry despite the front moving through on Saturday. Southeast England will likely have a mostly dry, warm day on Saturday with the front not arriving until the evening or overnight. Cooler northwest winds will follow behind for northern areas, bringing some scattered showers to the west.

Monday 20 July – Sunday 26 July

Northern areas more frequently wet, windy

As we head into late July, the north-south split for the weather will become much more of a persistent feature in the pattern. In the north, we expect fronts will edge in from the Atlantic at times, bringing intermittent but frequent spells of wet and breezy weather to Scotland and Northern Ireland. With cooler northwest winds following on behind the fronts, temperatures in Scotland will likely trend a little below normal. Any dry spells between fronts will be fleeting.

Meanwhile, high pressure is expected to be to the south of the British Isles and into Central Europe during this week. As a result, southern and central parts of England and Wales should see many dry, settled days with temperatures close to, or slightly above, average. Fronts will move through occasionally, but rain is not expected to be frequent or particularly heavy. The best of the dry and bright weather will be in southeast England, where the week may be mostly dry.

The main risk to the forecast is that the high pressure to the south will tend to be stronger and more overhead throughout the week. This will mean the weather is much drier and calmer, even as far north as Scotland. This will also bring in some warmer than normal weather - but there are not any strong signals for heatwaves.

Monday 27 July – Sunday 9 August

Changeable, with alternating dry and wet spells

For late July and the first few weeks in August, we expect low pressure tracks from the North Atlantic will tend to continue to move into the UK. The main change we expect to see is a gradual reduction in the impacts from nearby high pressure. The result is that lows will move overhead more often, and even southern areas will tend to see more frequently wet and windy weather. There will still be some dry spells, especially in late-July and very early-August, and these will be longer lived in southern areas, but as a whole the country will see more unsettled weather.

However, confidence in the forecast is rather low, more so than normal for this range. Records continue to be broken for early tropical storm formation in the Atlantic this year and a very active hurricane season is forecast. These weather systems tend to have a big impact on European weather and wreak havoc on the long-range computer models, which struggle to see them coming more than a fortnight ahead. We expect that the model skill in forecasting the weather at the three and four week range is likely to be poor at the moment.

The main risk, similar to early weeks, is that high pressure becomes more influential into August, bringing some warmer and drier weather more consistently, along with a risk of heat for southern areas.

Further ahead

Next update: We will hopefully see some better signals for the weather story into early August from the models, but will another Atlantic tropical cyclone throw a spanner in the works?

Monday 20 Jul - Wednesday 29 Jul

Patchy cloud and sunny spells on Monday with the south staying largely dry. Showers are possible elsewhere however, especially in the north and northwest where there will be a cool breeze also. Most areas will be mostly dry into the middle of next week, beyond which it is likely that the settled conditions will continue for many central and southern areas, bringing dry weather and sunny spells here. Northern and northwestern parts will probably turn increasingly unsettled with spells of rain accompanied by stronger winds at times. Later in the period there is a chance that the unsettled conditions across the north may spread more widely across the rest of the UK. Temperatures near or slightly above average but perhaps warm or at times very warm in the south.

Thursday 30 Jul - Thursday 13 Aug

Through the end of July and into August many parts of UK are likely to see periods of drier and settled weather, most especially in the south. These settled periods however will be interspersed with spells of wet weather with winds becoming stronger at times. These spells of wind and rain will largely be across the north and west of the UK but will often spread to other areas. Temperatures sticking around normal with any warmer weather being short-lived and most likely in the south.

Tuesday 21 Jul - Thursday 30 Jul

Predominantly dry on Tuesday, though some showers will still form in the north, but they will be lighter and less frequent then recently. Temperatures around average in the south, but slightly below elsewhere. Most areas will be mostly dry into the middle of next week, beyond which it is likely that the settled conditions will continue for many central and southern areas, bringing dry weather and sunny spells here. Northern and northwestern parts will probably turn increasingly unsettled with spells of rain accompanied by stronger winds at times. Later in the period there is a chance that the unsettled conditions across the north may spread more widely across the rest of the UK. Temperatures near or slightly above average but perhaps warm or at times very warm in the south.

Friday 31 Jul - Friday 14 Aug

Through the end of July and into August many parts of UK are likely to see periods of drier and settled weather, most especially in the south. These settled periods however will be interspersed with spells of wet weather with winds becoming stronger at times. These spells of wind and rain will largely be across the north and west of the UK but will often spread to other areas. Temperatures sticking around normal with any warmer weather being short-lived and most likely in the south.

Wednesday 22 Jul - Friday 31 Jul

Wednesday looks fine and dry in the south with plenty of sunny spells on offer. Showers affecting northern parts will probably ease, being replaced by thicker cloud, more persistent rain and stronger winds. Temperatures on the warm side in the south, but slightly below average further north. As we head towards the weekend it looks like there will be transition to more unsettled conditions, starting in the north and west, but extending further south and east later. This brings rain and strong winds to many parts of the UK. There will be periods of calmer and more settled weather during the following week, especially further south and east, though unseasonally wet and windy conditions will likely return frequently. Temperatures around average, with any warm spells most likely in the south.

The second part is poorly written IMO:

1) It references the end of July which is one day and covered by the first half. 

2) Wind and rain largely across the north and west but OFTEN spread to other areas.
