Tonight:

A dry and warm evening with late sunshine, then a dry night with long clear spells. Mild or very mild overnight with occasionally fresh southeasterly winds. Minimum temperature 11 °C.

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 Wednesday 31 May 2017 to Friday 9 Jun 2017:

Mainly dry with some sunny spells in the south and east on Wednesday. Becoming more unsettled in the north and west into Thursday 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. Turning more generally changeable from the end of the week and through the remainder of the period. The northwest tending to see spells of rain or showers with some drier, brighter interludes. Generally drier and brighter further southeast, but some rain at times here too. Windy at times, especially in the northwest. Temperatures generally near normal in the northwest and warm at times in the south and east.

UK Outlook for Saturday 10 Jun 2017 to Saturday 24 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, mainly in the south, bringing some drier and brighter weather. 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.
