Today: Tuesday 07 July

A mainly dry morning then cloudy with a spell of rain in the afternoon, perhaps heavy for a while. Moderate winds.

Clear intervals and the odd shower overnight. A bright start with sunny intervals and perhaps the odd shower but clouding over during the morning with rain arriving by early afternoon, becoming heavy for a few hours. The rain easing to a light drizzle later in the afternoon and evening with most areas dry after dusk.

Low confidence until Thursday due to a slow-moving frontal system across the central United Kingdom then confidence improving for the more settled spell heading towards the weekend.


Mostly good away from cloud in the morning then dropping moderate, perhaps poor in heavier rain in the afternoon and any early evening drizzle.

Cloud Free Hill Top

70% overnight rising 90% in morning but chances falling to 20% or less in the afternoon as the cloud base lowers in the rain, perhaps to 500-600m, and only gradual improvements in the evening as it dries up again.


Some uncertainties in the timing of rain and low cloud.
