Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Wednesday 11 May 2016 to Friday 20 May 2016:

Southern and central parts of the UK are likely to see occasional outbreaks of rain or showers, which could be heavy and thundery at times, but also some drier and brighter spells. Further north there will be drier conditions with more in the way of bright or sunny spells. Cooler and cloudier around eastern coasts, especially at first. Any outbreaks of rain across the south will become confined to the continent by mid-late May leaving plenty of dry weather across the UK, before frontal systems try to push into northwestern parts. Temperatures will be generally warm or very warm, but near normal for southern parts in any wetter spells, and below for eastern coasts. By mid May temperatures are likely to return to near normal for the time of year.

Updated at: 1259 on Fri 6 May 2016

UK Outlook for Saturday 21 May 2016 to Saturday 4 Jun 2016:

There is some uncertainty through this period but the most likely scenario is for mainly dry weather with sunny spells to persist in the south and east, whilst more changeable weather is expected in the north and west with showers or longer spells of rain, interspersed by some drier and brighter conditions. By the end of May and through early June, there are weak signals that the mainly dry and settled weather in the south will spread northwards into other parts of the country. Temperatures are likely to be near normal, though perhaps becoming warm later towards the southeast.
