UK forecast for the next 5 days

Dry and bright on Saturday, though rain spreading north-eastwards later.

Today:

Generally fine and dry for many, and feeling pleasantly warm after a chilly start. There will be a few showers affecting parts of Scotland and eastern parts of England. Meanwhile, cloud and rain will spread into the south-west later.

Tonight:

Rain and strengthening winds will be spreading eastwards across the UK during Saturday night, although the far north and east of Scotland should remain dry.

Sunday:

Rain will clear to blustery showers on Sunday. The showers most frequent in the north and west. Windy, with gales for some exposed southern coasts and the far north later.

Showers at first on Monday followed by further heavy rain and strong winds. Sunshine and heavy thundery showers on Tuesday. Drier for many on Wednesday with temperatures rising.

Updated at: 0248 on Sat 30 May 2015

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Wednesday 3 Jun 2015 to Friday 12 Jun 2015:

Many places should be dry on Wednesday with some sunshine, the best of this in southern and eastern areas. More unsettled conditions, with outbreaks of rain and brisk winds, probably spreading into northern areas later on Wednesday and during Thursday, with the south probably remaining dry, and warmer than we've seen recently. Thereafter it looks as though high pressure will become established over northern parts of the UK, bringing generally dry, fine conditions for most. There is a risk later in the period that the south will see some heavy and thundery showers spreading up from the continent. Temperatures generally warm or very warm in most inland areas. Coastal areas in the east, may well be a little cooler at times with winds off the chilly North Sea.

UK Outlook for Saturday 13 Jun 2015 to Saturday 27 Jun 2015:

High pressure looks as though it will be established across the north of the UK during much of this period. This will bring fine and dry conditions to most parts with warmer conditions than of late across the north, and especially the northwest. It is also expected to be very warm in the south, although here there is a risk of some heavy and thundery showers spreading up from continental Europe. Confidence in the forecast evolution declines towards the end of June; however, the general trend looks set to remain similar, with drier conditions in the north, some showers possible in the south, and generally warm temperatures.
