UK long range weather forecast

Further spells of rain likely to affect northwestern parts of the UK during Friday, especially over higher ground. Elsewhere, largely dry with sunny spells. Into the weekend there is a lot of uncertainty at this stage, but will probably see the unsettled weather continuing across the far north and northwest, with drier and brighter conditions elsewhere. Temperatures will generally be above average. During the remainder of the month high pressure is likely to remain close by bringing periods of settled weather and warmer conditions, especially across southern areas, with although the chance of some thundery showers moving up from the near continent. Northern parts of the UK may see further spells of wet and windy weather at times.


Confidence remains rather low during this period. However, there are signs that high pressure will dominate the weather across the UK. Southern areas are most likely to see the driest and sunniest weather at first, perhaps with some lingering wet and potentially windy conditions affecting the north. However, longer spells of dry and sunny weather may occasionally develop across all parts. Temperatures are generally likely to be warmer than average, although there is little indication of anything exceptional at this time.
