Updated: 03:32 on Fri 26 May 2017 BST

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Another hot sunny day today. Thunderstorms tonight and tomorrow.

Today:

Friday will be dry, sunny and hot again almost everywhere. A warm breeze will develop, particularly in the south and west. Western parts of Northern Ireland will cloud over in the afternoon bringing the chance of showers there later.

Tonight:

After a warm sunny evening, most places will have another mild and rather muggy night. Heavy and thundery showers will move across south-west England, south Wales and Northern Ireland.

Saturday:

Saturday will be hot again in the east but those heavy, thundery showers will move further north-eastwards, leaving fresher but still sunny and warm weather in the south and west.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Sunday will be fresher, though mostly dry and sunny. Heavy overnight showers in the south will continue into Monday. Tuesday will probably be mainly dry, except in the far northwest.

Updated: 03:33 on Fri 26 May 2017 BST

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Tuesday 30 May 2017 to Thursday 8 Jun 2017:

Initially fairly settled with dry conditions and some sunny spells on Tuesday. Then becoming more changeable with bands of cloud and rain pushing in from the west, weakening as they move eastwards. The south and southeast still at risk of further humid conditions and thundery outbreaks. Temperatures remaining rather warm. Remaining unsettled from the end of the week and through the remainder of the period with a northwest-southeast split. The northwest tending to see spells of rain or showers with some drier, brighter interludes. Generally drier and brighter further southeast, but with some humid, thundery spells still possible in the southeast. Becoming windy at times, especially over next weekend. Temperatures generally near normal, or rather cool, in the northwest and warm at times in the south and east.

UK Outlook for Friday 9 Jun 2017 to Friday 23 Jun 2017:

Confidence is currently low through this period, though we are more likely to see changeable conditions continue through the early part of June. More settled weather may begin to dominate for a time towards the middle of the month, bringing drier and brighter weather for many. Temperatures are likely to be close to normal at first, but may become generally warm, perhaps locally very warm for a time during mid June. By the latter part of the month, there is a possibility of more unsettled conditions developing once more, with spells of rain at times, and temperatures returning closer to average.
