Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Saturday 30 May 2015 to Monday 8 Jun 2015:

The transition from May into June is expected to be unsettled, with spells of rain interspersed by drier, brighter and more showery interludes. It may be rather windy, particularly in the northwest, with the bulk of the rainfall also here. Southern and eastern areas look best placed for the driest, brightest weather. Temperatures are likely to be below average in the northwest, but near average further south and east. Into the first week of June unsettled conditions are considered likely to continue in the northwest, with slightly below average temperatures, but more settled, warmer, conditions may start to dominate in the southeast. Towards the weekend these warmer more settled conditions look likely to spread to most of the country although perhaps with a risk of showers in the south.

UK Outlook for Tuesday 9 Jun 2015 to Tuesday 23 Jun 2015:

There still remains some uncertainty in the likely weather type through this period. There is, however, a signal for higher pressure to become established to the north of the UK until the middle of June. This would lead to drier, warmer conditions for many, these perhaps most prolonged in the north, but it may also allow some more unsettled, perhaps thundery, weather to move up from continental Europe and affect the south of the country. As we head into the third week of June there is a chance that similar conditions may persist with drier than average conditions in the north, however some unsettled spells are also likely at times.
