UK forecast for the next 5 days

Mostly fine at first, becoming more unsettled from Thursday.

This Evening and Tonight:

Breezy and showery across western Scotland. Elsewhere, some good cloud breaks forming with lighter winds. Overnight, clear skies bring the risk of local fog patches to the southwest, and chilly conditions for many with rural grass frost forming locally.

Wednesday:

Showers in the northwest, but elsewhere mostly dry through the morning, bright in the southeast. Thickening cloud and strengthening winds, with rain developing across many central and western areas later.

Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

Blustery showers in most places on Thursday and Friday, accompanied by strong winds in the north. Isolated showers in Scotland and rain in the southwest on Saturday. Rather cool throughout.

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Sunday 31 May 2015 to Tuesday 9 Jun 2015:

Rather unsettled conditions at first 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 across the country, but particularly in the northwest. By midweek, unsettled conditions are considered likely to continue in the northwest, with slightly below average temperatures, but more settled, warmer, conditions may start to build in the south. Towards the end of the week these warmer, more settled conditions look likely to spread north to most of the country although perhaps with a risk of showers in the south.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 10 Jun 2015 to Wednesday 24 Jun 2015:

There is some uncertainty in the likely weather type through this period, however there is a signal for higher pressure to become established to the north of the UK. This would lead to drier, warmer conditions for many, these perhaps most prolonged across 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. This trend looks like it may continue into the third week of June with drier than average conditions in the north, however some unsettled spells are also likely to push in from the west at times, as well some thundery outbreaks also coming up from the south.
