Met Office - Longer Range Forecast, for the entire UK   Met Office.:
........... Monday 26 Jul - Wednesday 4 Aug
An unsettled start to the period, especially across eastern parts of the UK where some slow moving and heavy showers are likely, these possibly thundery at times. The best of the drier and sunnier conditions will be towards the west at first. Conditions are likely to become more generally unsettled by mid-week. Temperatures are likely to dip back to near normal to warm for most, particularly in the northwest of the UK. From the end of next week until early August, we will likely see changeable conditions with a mix of sunny spells and heavy showers, perhaps with some more prolonged rain at times. Currently, there is no preference towards any particular area seeing one regime dominate. Temperatures around average.
Thursday 5 Aug - Thursday 19 Aug
To begin the period, mixed conditions look likely to remain for a few more days, with no dominant weather type. Drier conditions with sunny spells are likely to be interspersed with showers or longer periods of rain. As we head further towards mid-August, it is most likely to become more settled with drier and warmer conditions developing. However, as with all long range forecasts, confidence become lower towards longer timescales. ..................................
