Today and Tomorrow's forecast
Friday 29 July
Dull and damp to start today with outbreaks of rain and drizzle. Drier conditions developing in the northwest will extend southwards through the rest of the morning and then it will brighten up everywhere to a day of sunny spells and just a few scattered showers. Highest temperatures of 17 to 20 degrees, mildest across the midlands, south and east. Becoming less humid than recently as a light northerly breeze brings clearer, fresher conditions.
Tonight will be mainly dry with clear spells, there will, however, be isolated showers in the west and northwest, becoming more frequent in the northwest towards morning. Lowest temperatures 10 or 11 degrees. Light northerly winds will back westerly overnight.
Saturday 30 July
Tomorrow, Saturday, will be mainly dry with sunny spells and just isolated showers. Highest temperatures 16 to 18 degrees in mainly light northwest winds.
Saturday night will be mainly dry with clear spells but there'll still be a few more showers along western coasts. Lowest temperatures will be between 8 and 11 degrees with light westerly winds.
Sunday will also bring a fair amount of dry and sunny weather, but there will be a few showers also. Temperatures will remain on the slightly lower side of normal, though it should feel pleasant in sunshine with just light breezes. Highest temperatures of 16 to 18 degrees. Staying dry overnight too with lowest temperatures of 9 or 10 degrees.
It'll stay mainly dry through Bank Holiday Monday too for most places in the country, still with the caveat of isolated showers though, and there'll be sunny spells too. There is a band of rain nearby though and that could push up against southwest coasts, spoiling the end of the day there. Temperatures improving on Sunday, up to 19 degrees and winds will steadily fall light variable. It'll become cool in the northeast of the country overnight as skies clear but elsewhere cloudier conditions will keep temperatures above 10 degrees overnight.
That rain in the southwest later on Monday looks like pushing northwards to affect up along the west coast during Tuesday but most of the rest of the country will remain largely dry. Winds will become southeasterly and temperatures will improve.
The further outlook is still looking unsettled with spells of rain at times but southerly winds possibly bringing something of an improvement in temperatures at least for the middle of the week.
