    Outbreaks of occasionally thundery rain will slowly ease northwards overnight, but persisting throughout in the far north. Elsewhere it will be dry with clear spells, feeling cooler than of late.


    Rain will continue to slowly clear the Northern Isles through Sunday, elsewhere dry and bright with a fresher feel but further thundery showers arriving from the south in the afternoon.

    On Monday thundery showers will push north with brighter conditions following. Fresher again on Tuesday and Wednesday with light rain in the northwest and drier and brighter conditions further southeast.

    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.

    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.
