Met Office - Longer Range Forecast, for the entire UK   Met Office.:
........... Sunday 3 Jul - Tuesday 12 Jul
The period will start with scattered showers and sunny spells for most, gradually easing from the west through Sunday. More settled conditions are expected into the start of next week, although with a risk of showers at times continuing in the north. A generally more settled regime persists for much of this period, although occasional spells of more organised cloud and rain may continue to affect northern parts at times. Southern and eastern areas are most likely to see a good deal of dry and sunny conditions through the period. Temperatures feeling near normal to rather cool in the northwest, although likely increasing above normal towards the end of the period as settled conditions become more widespread. In the south and east, temperatures above average to rather warm.
Tuesday 12 Jul - Tuesday 26 Jul
There is a good chance of more settled conditions prevailing through the middle and later parts of July, although some northern areas may see spells of rain or showers at times, especially earlier in the period. These spells could extend across the country at times, but in general the south will see the best of the settled conditions. Temperatures are likely to be close to or a little above average initially but trending towards widely warm conditions later, especially across the south................................
