UK Plaintext Forecasts

Issued by the Met Office on 2019-07-17 at 04:00:00

Southwest England

Fine, sunny and warm today. Unsettled later this week.


Fine for much of the day with spells of sunshine, steadily turning hazier. In the sunshine and light winds it will feel warm, although fresher at the coast with gentle sea breezes. Maximum Temperature 24C.


Skies will turn cloudier overnight with the chance of some mainly light rain in places. It will be rather warm for much of the night. Minimum Temperature 15C.


A few spots of light rain at first, otherwise a largely dry day with plenty of sunny spells. Warm in the sunshine, but slightly fresher than recent days. Maximum Temperature 22C.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday

Unsettled on Friday with stronger winds and outbreaks of heavy rain possible. This clears to sunshine and heavy, thundery showers on Saturday, but most will be dry again by Sunday.

UK Outlook for Sunday 21 Jul 2019 to Tuesday 30 Jul 2019

Sunday will bring a mixture of sunshine and showers across northern Britain, with largely dry conditions to close out the weekend in the south. Into the start of next week, low pressure is most likely to be close to northwest Britain, bringing stronger winds and occasionally heavy rain. Further southeast, it should be mostly dry with the potential to tap into very warm air drifting north out of Europe. Towards midweek, the wetter and somewhat cooler weather in the northwest looks to push further southeast, displacing the warmth and sunshine here. By the end of the month, a more widely changeable pattern looks most likely, with the wettest weather most likely further to the northwest, and sunshine more prevalent in the southeast.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 31 Jul 2019 to Wednesday 14 Aug 2019

As we move into August, the final month of the meteorological summer, confidence is low in the forecast with no one single weather pattern looking to dominate. As is often the case in summer, this could well mean plenty of fine, dry weather, interspersed with occasional thundery outbreaks, leading to marked local variations in rainfall. Temperatures are likely to pan out above average, perhaps more especially in the south and west.
