Regional forecast for East of England

Bank Holiday Monday mainly dry but rather cloudy.

This Evening and Tonight:

Becoming dry by the evening, with some late sunny intervals possible. It should become cloudier generally as the night progresses, although this should help keep temperatures up. Minimum Temperature 6C.

Monday:

Slightly cooler than Sunday under rather cloudy skies. Staying predominantly dry, but with an outside chance of a light shower later. Probably brightest late on, with limited sunny intervals possible. Maximum Temperature 16C.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

Rather cloudy but predominantly dry with some limited sunny intervals Tuesday. Wednesday probably brighter, before becoming cloudier and breezier later. Wet and windy early Thursday, brighter with blustery showers later.

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Dry with broken cloud and clear spells for most.

This Evening and Tonight:

It will be largely dry with a mix of cloud and clear spells, any remaining rain and thicker cloud in southeast England will soon clear. Showers, however will continue across northern and western Scotland overnight.

Monday:

Largely dry with plenty of cloud but also some brightness or sunshine developing, especially in the east. Some patchy rain or showers may affect parts of the northwest at times.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

Many areas dry during Tuesday and Wednesday, best of brightness in the east. Rain and strong winds reaching the northwest later Wednesday, spreading east Thursday morning, with blustery showers later.

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Friday 29 May 2015 to Sunday 7 Jun 2015:

May is expected to end unsettled, with spells of rain interspersed by drier, brighter and more showery interludes. It may be rather windy, particularly in the northwest, with a risk of gales, and the bulk of the rainfall. Southern and eastern areas look best placed for the driest, brightest weather. Temperatures are likely to be below average in the northwest, but near average further south and east. Into June the signal for prevailing weather becomes fairly weak, but, on balance, unsettled conditions are considered more likely in the northwest at first, with slightly below average temperatures, and settled, warmer, conditions in the southeast. Towards the weekend these warmer more settled conditions are likely to spread to most of the country with a risk of showers in the south.

UK Outlook for Monday 8 Jun 2015 to Monday 22 Jun 2015:

There still remains considerable uncertainty in the likely weather type through this period. There is, however, a signal for higher pressure to become established to the north of the UK. This would lead to drier, warmer conditions for many, these perhaps most prolonged in the north, but it may also allow some more unsettled, perhaps thundery, weather to move up from continental Europe and affect the south of the country.
