Regional Forecast for South West England

Headline:

Warm sunny spells and isolated thundery showers.

Tonight:

Thunderstorms will ease through the evening, leaving plenty dry weather with clear spells. Some mist and hill fog will develop and towards dawn, showers will arrive from the south. Minimum temperature 11 °C.

Saturday:

Showers will become more widespread through Saturday, with heavy and thundery bursts possible at times throughout the day. In any bright or sunny spells it will feel warm. Maximum temperature 24 °C.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Very warm, perhaps even hot through the rest of the weekend and into Tuesday with sunny spells and isolated thunderstorms. These could bring torrential rain, frequent lightning and gusty winds.

Updated: 01:26 on Fri 25 May 2018 BST

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Heavy, thundery rain slowly moving northwards.

Today:

Heavy and thundery rain across central swathes of England and Wales will slowly move northwards. Mostly dry across Scotland with very warm sunshine in the west, but some fog along eastern coasts. Brightening up in the south, with isolated thunderstorms.

Tonight:

Rain across northern and some central parts becoming more sporadic overnight, still with some heavy bursts. Elsewhere, clear spells and patchy fog, but further showers across southern England by dawn.

Saturday:

Rain in northern England will ease to leave many fine and very warm. Southern and southwestern areas will see further thundery showers, whilst coasts in northeast Scotland could remain misty.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Very warm over the Bank Holiday weekend with plenty of sunshine, especially in the northwest. Scattered thunderstorms in the south, especially on Sunday. Mist returning to eastern coasts from Monday.

Updated: 01:25 on Fri 25 May 2018 BST

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Tuesday 29 May 2018 to Thursday 7 Jun 2018:

Through the early part of next week, there will be a good deal of dry, fine and sunny weather across the UK. Mist and low cloud may continue to affect eastern coastal districts. There is also a risk of scattered thunderstorms across the south and southwest, especially through Wednesday. It will stay very warm for most, locally hot in the south, although temperatures may fall closer to average by Wednesday. For the rest of the period, there will be more fine and dry weather to come, with the best of the sunshine in the north. There is a continued threat of thundery showers across central and southern areas, and the far west could see rain at times. After a very warm start, temperatures are likely to fall closer to average.

UK Outlook for Friday 8 Jun 2018 to Friday 22 Jun 2018:

Confidence remains low through June, however there are signs that it may become more widely changeable across the UK. This will bring more frequent spells of rain or showers. However there are likely to be drier and more settled periods for most areas too, especially at the start of the period. Temperatures are likely to be near or slightly above average on the whole, with the potential for some warmer spells, especially at first.
