Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Thursday 28 May 2015 to Saturday 6 Jun 2015:

Unsettled weather is expected to see out May, bringing spells of rain interspersed by drier, brighter and more showery interludes. It will also be rather windy at times, particularly in the northwest, with periods of gales likely here, along with the bulk of expected rainfall. Southern and eastern areas look best placed for the driest, brightest weather, with a chance that the south could develop more prolonged dry conditions. Temperatures are likely to be below average in the northwest, but near average further south and east, still with the potential for some warm days. By early June there is no strong signal for a prevailing weather type, but, on balance, unsettled conditions are considered more likely along with slightly below normal temperatures, especially in the northwest.

UK Outlook for Sunday 7 Jun 2015 to Sunday 21 Jun 2015:

There still remains considerable uncertainty in the likely weather type through this period. At first, unsettled conditions and near or below average temperatures are likely, especially towards the northwest. Then, as we go further into June, there is a signal for higher pressure to become established to the northeast of the UK, which would lead to drier, warmer conditions for many, these perhaps most prolonged in the north.

Brighton information

Still one of the most popular seaside destinations in the UK, Brighton has been a tourist hotspot for many years thanks to its climate, nightlife and fantastic shopping.

The advent of the railway really helped to boost the city's profile. Brighton has consistently attracted visitors for day trips, weekends and entire holidays, with its proximity to London has helped create a huge tourist industry that erupted during the Victorian era, with the building of several attractions including the West Pier and the Palace Pier.

Modern-day Brighton has much to echo the luxury of the Georgian and Victorian eras, with a new swathe of independent boutiques opening in key shopping areas of the city, such as The Lanes, which is packed full of quirky shops, jewellers, antiques dealers and specialist restaurants.

February in Brighton is often the coldest month with an average daytime minimum of 1.9 °C which is a degree higher than the UK average. The relatively mild winters can be attributed to Brighton's close proximity to the sea. Similarly, air frost is lower in Brighton than national figures during winter. The highest number of days when an air frost forms is typically in February. January has the joint highest number of 'rain days' with November at 12.7.

Temperatures climb steadily from an average maximum of 10 °C in March to approaching 16 °C in May. Although rare it is not unheard of for air frost to occur in May. Rainfall is quite low in Brighton all year round. During spring the most rain usually falls in March. Rainfall accumulation and days of rain are slightly higher in spring than summer though.

August is the warmest month in Brighton with an average maximum of 20.8 °C. Heat waves are usually accompanied by warm nights. The UK record for a minimum temperature overnight was set in Brighton. It was 23.9 °C on 4th August 1990. For Brighton, summer is the driest time of the year. On average around 45.1 mm of rainfall is recorded in July making it the driest month.

Mild temperatures generally last until October, where highs of 15 °C are likely. Air frost days are predominately from November onwards although there are sometimes a few in October. Rainfall accumulation is highest in autumn than any other season, and October in particular typically sees the peak concentration.
