UK Outlook for Wednesday 27 May 2015 to Friday 5 Jun 2015:

Generally rather cloudy on Wednesday, with perhaps some light rain or drizzle in western areas at first. Some bright or sunny spells probably developing later, particularly in the south and east. Rain and freshening winds may reach the northwest by Wednesday evening. Much more unsettled on Thursday with wet and windy conditions developing across the country. The rest of the outlook period is expected to remain rather unsettled, with showers or some longer spells of rain, especially for northern areas where it could well be windy at times. The best of the drier and brighter conditions are expected in the south of the UK. Temperatures are likely to be below average in the northwest and near average further south and east, though with some warmer days later in the period.

UK Outlook for Saturday 6 Jun 2015 to Saturday 20 Jun 2015:

There is considerable uncertainty in the likely weather type through much of June. Overall, a rather mixed picture is likely, with rather unsettled conditions and near or below average temperatures at first, especially in the north. As we go further into June, there is a signal for higher pressure to become established across many areas which would lead to drier, warmer conditions for many, these perhaps most prolonged in the north.
