During Sunday and pressure is forecast to continue to steadily fall and this means a more widespread risk of showers or perhaps thunderstorms developing during the day, but uncertainties over the details. It may well still be England and Wales that is at greatest risk of the heaviest showers, while Scotland remains somewhat drier and brighter, if not sunnier at times. Still warm for most. Highs 16C to 22C.
Into next week and it is still a showery period of weather that is forecast to be dominating, again especially across England and Wales where pressure is likely to be lowest. Locally heavy and thundery showers are once again possible with local downpours as the day progresses, but still with more northern and perhaps western areas of the UK overal drier and still brighter with some sunny spells. Average temperatures, but a cooling trend is forecast from early next week than compared with of late. Highs, 14C to 20C.
Uncertainties over the details from next Tuesday onwards but the risk of showers is forecast to continue, again especially across England and Wales. However, there is some forecast evidence to suggest that more of an Atlantic influence to the weather may well begin to develop and this could lead to a greater risk of rain or showers arriving from the west in association with low pressure systems moving into the UK off the N Atlantic to bring about, potentially, a more protracted period of unsettled weather. Cooler. Highs, 13C to 19C.
Unsettled weather seems likely by next Wednesday as low pressure and associated weather fronts move across the UK off the N Atlantic bringing a risk of rain or showers, at times to most areas, perhaps with some heavy rain or showers too, most probably in the north and west. Temperatures will continue to cool, especially compared with of late and in any wet weather. Highs 13C to 18C.
Uncertainties over the details by next Thursday but there is good weather model agreement for low pressure to be the dominant feature situated either over or just to the west of the UK bringing a continued risk of rain or showers at times, perhaps with some heavy rain in places too. Temperatures cool, again particularly compared with recent weeks. Highs 12C to 17C, lowest in the north and west.
The unsettled spell is forecast to continue through to next Friday at the moment as low pressure becomes dominant to the west or north-west and this maintaining an unsettled west or south-westerly wind across many areas. Further rain or showers are forecast at times, especially in the north and west where potentially heavy, but with some drier intervals in the far south and south-east. Many areas remaining much cooler than of late, particularly in the north and west. Highs 13C to 18C.
