Fair south with little rain, more mixed to the north, warm overall
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.
*27/6/15 - 3/7/15*
High pressure builds east of the UK through this week. Temperatures are set to rise and it could become very warm at times, especially in the east. More western areas are likely to be seeing some thundery outbreaks of rain, and there is the chance that these thunderstorms could spread east at times.
*4/7/15 - 10/7/15*
The area of high pressure remains to the south with lower pressure passing north. A more southwesterly flow ensues and this is likely to be bringing mild to warm temperatures, perhaps very warm at times in the south. It could be that there is very little rain in southern England, although rain at times in the north and west.
*11/7/15 - 17/7/15*
Little changes during the week. Lower pressure close to Scotland and Ireland brings mixed conditions here. Further south there is likely to be little in the way of rain, and much of the far south of England may stay dry overall. Staying warm.
*18/7/15 - 24/7/15
The area of high pressure starts to build back north again. This could bring drier weather to most with warm to very warm temperatures in much of England, Wales and Ireland.Always the risk of some rain in Scotland, but tending to stay warmer here.
