UK long range weather forecast

Unsettled weather dominates on Monday with a band of heavy rain pushing northeastwards across the northern half of the UK, but with heavy showers breaking out in parts of the south. There's a risk of thunderstorms bringing some torrential downpours across central and eastern England where it could be very warm. This unsettled theme continues through the middle of the week, with further bouts of heavy rain and thunderstorms likely, especially for central and eastern areas. As we approach the end of June there may be more in the way of dry and settled weather, with temperatures mostly near normal, but warm at times in the southeast. However, by early July more unsettled conditions with showers or perhaps some longer spells of rain may return to northwestern areas.

Updated:


During the first half of July confidence in the forecast detail becomes very low, however it seems most probable that high pressure will lie to the south and east of the UK whilst Atlantic weather fronts occasionally affect the north and northwest. This means showers and perhaps some longer spells of rain are likely in the northwest, while the south and southeast may see more in the way of dry weather, although some thundery outbreaks are possible as is usual for this time of year. Temperatures through this part of July will probably near or slightly above average for most.
