UK long-range weather forecasts predict some warm and sunny weather for much of the country later in July. Here are the latest long-range weather forecasts, maps and charts.
Both rain and sunshine has made an appearance so far in July, but many are longing for the hot weather the UK witnessed in June. And according to the latest long-range forecasts and weather maps, much of the UK will see some warm weather later this month.
From next week (Monday, July 13), much of the country will be seeing a pattern of warm, settled weather.
Netweather’s long-range forecast states temperatures will be “above the seasonal average by day” through the early to middle part of next week, although any repeat of heatwave conditions appears “unlikely”.
The forecast reads: “High pressure will dominate the weather over much of the UK during the early to middle part of this week, and over England and Wales the weather will be predominantly dry and sunny, with temperatures above the seasonal average by day, but near average by night.
“It currently looks unlikely that this high pressure spell will bring any prolonged heatwaves, although a short-lived hot southerly or south-easterly incursion towards the very end of this anticyclonic spell is possible.”
The Met Office forecasts some particularly warm weather for southern regions into the second half of next week.
The forecast for Wednesday, July 15 to Friday, July 24 reads: “Through the majority of this period, it will be mostly dry and settled for many areas, especially in the south of the UK.
“More unsettled conditions with spells of rain and strong winds may affect the north and northwest at times.
“These unsettled conditions could spread to other parts of the UK later in this period, but widespread unsettled conditions are unlikely.
“Temperatures are likely to be mostly around normal, although it may become warm for a time in the south and perhaps very warm in the southeast.
“Towards the end of the period, conditions may start to trend towards more generally settled weather for most areas, but with the possibility of the occasional bout of wetter weather.”
According to WXCHARTS maps, which use data from MetDesk, many parts of the UK will see maximum temperatures above 20C next week.
On Monday, July 13, some parts of the UK are forecast to see highs of 22C.
On this date, much of central and eastern England will also see temperatures above 20C, with temperatures ranging in the teen’s for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
Friday, July 17 also looks likely to be a particularly balmy day for many, with highs of 25C forecast for parts of the south-east of England.
Southern, central and eastern parts of England are also expected to see temperatures in the range of 20 to 24C at this time.
From Saturday, July 25, confidence is low in the long-range forecast.
However, the Met Office is predicting “the preferred scenario favours a more settled regime”.
The Met Office forecasts from July 25 to August 8 “plenty of dry, fine weather” will be making an appearance.
Some spells of rain and some strong winds are also possible during this time, which are expected most likely across the north and west of the UK, potentially spreading to other areas.
As for temperatures, the Met Office predicts they will be “generally above average”, but periods of warm weather are most likely to be “short-lived”.
