Mixed overall, but hints of some drier weather to start August

There are strong indications that the south of the country is going to be under the influence of higher than normal pressures in the coming month;. These bring fair conditions and much dry weather. More northern areas will be closer to lower pressure bringing the threat of some outbreaks of rain at times. Temperatures remaining above normal here.

*25/6/15 - 31/7/15*
An unsettled end to the month is likely. Lower pressure brings more unsettled conditions with cloud, wind and rain affecting many parts of the country. It won't be a washout, but rainfall totals will be near normal with temperatures close to average too.

*1/8/15 - 7/8/15*
After a more unsettled started to August, indications are that high pressure may start to build for a time. Although not being long lived, the high may will bring several days of fair weather. Note confidence is low.

*8/8/15 - 14/8/15*
A return to the more mixed weather. Again, it won't be wet weather, but neither will it be dry. A couple of days of dry weather may be followed by a day of wetter weather. Overall temperatures will be near normal.

*15/8/15 - 21/8/15
Staying rather mixed during the middle stages of August. Most of any rain is likely to be in the first part of the week, although things may improve again later.
