Weather Summary

Headline:

Dry and bright.

Today:

Early cloud and rain clearing from Shetland this morning to leave a dry day with some good spells of sunshine. Moderate southerly winds becoming a freshening southeasterly later. Maximum Temperature 17C.

Tonight:

Dry this evening with some sunshine. The rest of the night will be dry with clear periods and some misty low cloud. Brisk east to southeasterly wind. Minimum Temperature 12C.

Orkney will be dry with some brightness. Cloudier across Shetland with the chance of some drizzly rain at times. Brisk southeasterly wind. Maximum Temperature 17C.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Mainly dry with variable amounts of cloud, perhaps some low cloud around at times. Brisk easterly winds becoming northerly early next week.

UK Outlook for Tuesday 25 Jul 2017 to Thursday 3 Aug 2017:

Many areas will be dry on Tuesday with some sunny spells but there is the chance of a few showers, especially in the east. Early on Wednesday, there is an increasing chance of cloud and rain spreading into western areas, accompanied by strengthening winds. Staying unsettled through the rest of the week as bands of rain continue to move in from the west, interspersed by brighter and showery interludes. Rain or showers could be heavy at times, especially in the northwest, with the driest weather further south and east. It will be windy at times with the risk of gales across the north, and often rather cool, especially in the west. This changeable weather is likely to continue into the start of August, especially in the north.

UK Outlook for Thursday 3 Aug 2017 to Thursday 17 Aug 2017:

There is low confidence throughout this period. We are likely to see some fine, dry spells of weather across the United Kingdom, but also some unsettled weather at times, mainly in the north. Temperatures are likely to recover to some extent with warmer than average temperatures at times through to mid-August, but there may be cooler conditions at times, especially in the northwest.
