A better end to July and early August, then unsettled

Low pressure is likely to be bringing a mixed end to July, although a rise in pressure right at the end of the month should lift temperatures and bring some sunshine. Early August may not fair too badly either, but a breakdown early in the month leading to a wetter, windier and generally more unsettled spell of weather into the middle of the month.

*19/7/14 - 25/7/14*
An unsettled week across many par5ts of the country as low pressure takes control. There will be rain and showers affecting many areas, most of it across the northern half of the country.
More southern areas may benefit from weak ridges of high pressure building from time to time bringing some drier days, although still with the risk of rain and showers at times. Temperatures near or just above normal.

*26/7/14 - 4/8/14*
Despite a mixed start to this week there are indications of a more general rise in pressure taking place from around the 28th. This could bring a spell of drier conditions with good spells of sunshine, and it may become warm too.

*5/8/14 - 11/8/14*
Fair at first with warm and dry weather, but it won't be long before things turn more mixed again.
A thundery area of low pressure approaches the country from the east and south bringing cooler, wetter weather for many. However, the west and north of Scotland and Ireland may fair better with the weather staying dry here.

*12/8/14 - 18/8/14
Probably a more mixed week with a westerly flow bringing rain. This could be heavy at times in the north and west. Rather windy at times too.
