The national forecaster said he still expects to see periods of “unstable weather”, but mainly in the northwestern areas.
But the Met Office said the rest of the UK “should see a lot of good and dry weather”.
The Met Office said in its long-term forecast from July 25 to August 8 that in mid-August there was a possibility of “more changeable weather.”

Forecasts remain positive, however, and indicate that there is a potential for “hot spells” in the south.
“For the remainder of July and early August, warmer and drier than average conditions are the most likely overall,” the Met Office said.
“Occasional spells of more volatile weather are still possible, particularly in parts of the north-west, but most of the UK is expected to experience a lot of good and dry weather.
“There is a low risk of developing temporary thunderstorm conditions, especially in the south and east of the country, with the possibility of more changeable weather conditions around mid-August at which time the predictability becomes very low.
“Above average temperatures continue to be reported for much of the period, with the potential for warm spells in the south. “
