UK Plaintext Forecasts

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

West Midlands

Fine start, but clouding over with rain later.


Starting fine with spells of hazy sunshine throughout the morning. Cloud will continue to thicken though with showery rain arriving during the afternoon and evening. Some southern parts of the region may remain dry and all will feel warm. Maximum Temperature 24C.


Remaining warm overnight with further outbreaks of mainly light, showery rain. This will tend to ease by dawn with most places becoming dry. Minimum Temperature 15C.


Mainly dry on Thursday with light winds and warm spells of sunshine, although feeling slightly fresher. 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.
