    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Tuesday 26 May 2015 to Thursday 4 Jun 2015:

    It looks to be rather cloudy at times on Tuesday, although some spells of sunshine are likely to develop during the day. A few showers are possible, most of these in the north and east, with south-western parts likely to stay mostly dry. Wednesday looks to turn somewhat cloudier, with a some rain spreading in from the northwest for a time. The rest of the outlook period is generally expected to remain rather unsettled, with showers or some longer spells of rain, especially for north-western areas. The best of the drier and brighter conditions are expected in the south of the UK. Temperatures are likely to remain rather below average generally, perhaps increasing to nearer average later.

    UK Outlook for Friday 5 Jun 2015 to Friday 19 Jun 2015:

    There is considerable uncertainty in the likely weather type through to the middle of June. Overall a rather mixed picture is likely and it will probably be rather unsettled in the first part of June, especially in the northwest. There is a weak signal for higher pressure to become established across northern areas as we go further into June which would lead to drier conditions in the north and perhaps more unsettled in the south. There is also uncertainty with regards to the overall temperature pattern, but the most likely scenario is a slight warming through the month, in line with climatic trends. The warming trend perhaps more noticeable for northern areas.
