Indications are that high pressure is going to be dominating the weather across the southern half of the UK and Ireland through July.
Models are in good agreement that the month is going to be drier than normal and more sunnier than normal across England and Wales as well as southern Ireland.
However, lower pressure is to the north and that probably allows fronts to pass eastwards through the country bringing some periods of cloud and rain at times. It could be breezy in northern Scotland too.
High pressure is expected to drift south of the UK through August. Pressure looks to be lower through more central areas. This is likely to be bringing periods of rain through Ireland and much of Scotland as well as southern England.
Overall a more unsettled month with near to above normal rainfall totals.
