UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Mostly dry, cloudy and mild night. Warm sunny spells tomorrow.

This Evening and Tonight:

Cloudy with patchy rain for western Scotland tonight. Mostly dry and cloudy elsewhere, though with some clear spells in the east. A good deal of low cloud, hill and coastal fog in the west and southwest of England. Staying mild.

Wednesday:

Patchy rain in the far northwest will gradually ease through the day. Dry elsewhere with bright or sunny spells, but coastal fog persisting along some southern coasts. Feeling warm.

Dry at first with increasing amounts of sunshine, and becoming very warm or hot for many. However, an increasing chance of thundery showers moving into southwestern areas on Saturday.

Updated: 14:36 on Tue 23 May 2017 BST

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Sunday 28 May 2017 to Tuesday 6 Jun 2017:

A very uncertain period, but the more likely scenario is for rather mixed conditions during the Bank Holiday, with showery outbreaks of rain, perhaps heavy and thundery, but also some brighter spells. Temperatures are likely to be down compared to earlier on in the weekend, although it should stay rather warm and humid, especially in the southeast. Meanwhile, it will probably be cooler and fresher in the north and west, where we may see windier conditions. Into next week, we will generally see a mixture of sunshine and showers, particularly across the northwest. However, we may hold on to drier, brighter and perhaps warmer conditions in the far southeast, although some thundery showers are possible.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 7 Jun 2017 to Wednesday 21 Jun 2017:

Confidence in the forecast remains low into early June, but on balance the first weekend of the month looks set to remain unsettled with showers or longer spells of rain, interspersed with some drier and brighter weather. Into the following week, and more settled weather may begin to dominate bringing drier and brighter weather for many. Temperatures are likely to be close to normal during the start of this period, but as more settled weather arrives it is likely that it will be generally warmer and may become very warm in places.
