Forecast summary

  • Regional
  • UK 5 days
  • UK 6-30 days

Regional forecast for London & South East England

Mainly fine with isolated showers.

This Evening and Tonight:

Many areas should stay dry, with late sunny spells giving way to clear intervals overnight, however there is also a risk of isolated showers developing. Some of these showers may be thundery and perhaps locally prolonged given the light winds. Minimum Temperature 7 °C.

Friday:

Some early low cloud is possible towards the Thames Estuary. However, while generally cooler than Thursday, it should be largely fine with some sunny spells and perhaps an isolated shower. Maximum Temperature 20 °C.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

A good deal of warm, fine weather is expected over the weekend, albeit with a chance of seeing a few locally heavy showers. Probably becoming wetter and windier by Monday.

Updated at: 1501 on Thu 26 May 2016

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Most places dry Friday, but scattered showers in the southwest.

This Evening and Tonight:

Rain will continue to ease Northern Ireland and Southern Scotland. Elsewhere it will be mainly dry with some clear spells, however cloudier skies and isolated thundery showers will push northwards across the far south of England and Wales.

Friday:

Cloudy and cool with a the odd spot of rain across eastern Scotland. Scattered thundery showers across some southwestern areas, but elsewhere largely dry with sunny spells and light winds.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

Many places should be warm through the weekend with sunny spells. Locally heavy, thundery showers are likely, mainly in the south. Rain may spread to eastern areas on Monday.

Updated at: 1525 on Thu 26 May 2016

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Tuesday 31 May 2016 to Thursday 9 Jun 2016:

Many places will see some rain through Tuesday and Wednesday, this perhaps heavy and thundery at times, with the wettest conditions likely in eastern and southeastern areas. It will also be breezy for most parts, particularly in the east, where the wind will make it feel quite cool. Despite this rain, northern and western Scotland may remain dry and sunny. Thereafter most parts of the country should see a good deal of dry weather, but also showers at times, these most likely across the south. Northern and western parts will most likely see the driest, sunniest and warmest conditions, while southern and eastern parts may see the fine weather broken up by some cloudier, cooler days with rain at times.

Updated at: 1201 on Thu 26 May 2016

UK Outlook for Friday 10 Jun 2016 to Friday 24 Jun 2016:

Currently it looks likely that generally settled conditions will continue until the start of this period. This means we can expect a good deal of dry and bright weather for many parts of the country, particularly in the north and west where the best of any warm and sunny weather should be. There will probably be some wetter intervals mixed in, these most likely in the south and east, making it feel cooler at times. Towards mid June, there is a chance that more unsettled conditions could become established, bringing some cooler and wetter weather to northern and western parts, while drier, warmer conditions become favoured towards the south and east.
