Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Sunday 5 Jun 2016 to Tuesday 14 Jun 2016:

High pressure centred to the north of Britain will initially bring a spell of settled weather for most on Sunday, with isolated showers confined to southern areas. The best of the sunshine will be found across central and western parts, whilst the east and northeast are likely to see more cloud, especially along the coast. Then as we go through the week it looks likely that it will gradually become more unsettled with an increasing risk of heavy showers or thunderstorms, especially in the south and west where it may become humid and very warm. However, some northern areas are likely to remain dry. This gradual trend to more unsettled conditions looks likely to continue through the weekend and into the following week, with temperatures also trending back towards average.

Updated at: 1309 on Tue 31 May 2016

UK Outlook for Wednesday 15 Jun 2016 to Wednesday 29 Jun 2016:

It may possibly start dry in the north and northeast, but for most the middle part of June is likely to be unsettled with either showers or longer spells of rain. These are likely to be heavy and thundery at times, with the west and southwest probably experiencing the most unsettled conditions, but there should also be some drier and brighter intervals in between. Then later in the month the latest indications are that it will be changeable, with all areas likely to see rain at times, but with northern areas most likely to have the most rain and the south the best of any drier, brighter weather. Temperatures generally near or just above average, especially in the south.
