UK 5 day weather forecast


Mainly sunny tomorrow, but rain for some.

This Evening and Tonight:

Dry and chilly for much of the country with some long clear spells, leading to a few mist patches by dawn. However, there will be cloudier skies across northern and eastern Scotland and some Irish Sea coasts, with patchy rain.


Sunny spells for most, although thicker cloud across parts of northern England and North Wales, and a few light showers possible. Cool and breezy across northern Scotland with rain likely.

Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

Isolated showers on Thursday and Friday, with fine weather between. Increasing amounts of cloud into Saturday with some heavy outbreaks of rain later. Temperatures slowly trending down.


UK long range weather forecast

Showers or perhaps longer spells of rain are likely on Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday in some areas, along with some stronger winds at times. However, most areas will see dry and fine weather for part of the weekend. Temperatures are likely to be near the seasonal average for many, but cool in any rain. It is most likely to be driest in the southeast, where it will be locally warm. The changeable and rather cool weather is likely to continue through the half term week. There will be showers or longer spells of rain at times, including the odd heavy or thundery shower. It will be windy in the south, especially at first, with some heavy rain possible. However, there will be some dry and bright spells too.


There are only weak weather signals for the first half of June, so we can expect a mixture of dry settled periods and changeable spells. In general, drier and less windy weather is more likely across northern parts of the UK, though southern areas can expect some of these quieter spells too. These periods of drier and settled weather will be punctuated by cooler, showery spells as Atlantic weather systems arrive from the west. In the absence of any strong signals, temperatures are forecast to be close to normal for the time of year.
