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.
