Regional Forecast for East Midlands

Headline:

Sunshine gradually developing for most.

Today:

Early mist, low cloud and fog patches will gradually burn back towards the coast, with rather warm and often sunny conditions developing, especially in the west. Although cloud could persist near the Lincolnshire coast, leading to a cooler feel. Maximum temperature 21 °C.

Tonight:

Some clear spells at first, before cloud and mist spreads inland from the Lincolnshire coast. Further cloud will also spread westwards elsewhere, although it should stay dry. Minimum temperature 9 °C.

Thursday:

Early cloud and mist will soon break and retreat back to the coast, with some warm sunshine developing. However a few showers are possible from late afternoon, perhaps turning thundery. Maximum temperature 22 °C.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

Cloudy start Friday, with early showers soon clearing north, and sunny spells developing. Very warm, humid and generally sunny Saturday and Sunday, although cooler along coasts with an onshore breeze.

Updated: 01:41 on Wed 23 May 2018 BST

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Mainly warm and sunny today, but cloudy in the northeast.

Today:

Warm, dry and sunny for most. Cloudier and cooler in northeastern areas, but the cloud will burn back towards the coast during the day. There is a risk of isolated showers in southeast England this afternoon.

Tonight:

Turning cloudier across central/southern England and Wales, with outbreaks of rain and perhaps the odd rumble of thunder. Dry in the north, but still cloud and fog in the northeast.

Thursday:

Warm and sunny in northwest England, Northern Ireland and Scotland; still cloudy and cooler in the northeast. Some outbreaks of rain in central/southern England and Wales, perhaps heavy or thundery.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

Heavy rain in places on Friday, but warm sunny spells for most. Saturday and Sunday warm sunny spells, but a few heavy and perhaps thundery showers, mainly in the south.

Updated: 02:08 on Wed 23 May 2018 BST

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Monday 28 May 2018 to Wednesday 6 Jun 2018:

Bank Holiday Monday will be fine and very warm for many, although cooler along some North Sea coasts with mist and fog. Scattered thunderstorms could affect southern and some central areas, but many will remain dry. Very warm and perhaps hot weather will continue for most through the end of May with plenty of sunshine, but with the risk of showers or thunderstorms more widely. With light easterly winds, North Sea coasts will often be cooler and cloudier. Into early June, confidence becomes low but most should remain dry and warm, although probably cooler than at the end of May. However, there will be an increasing chance of somewhat more changeable weather with the risk of showery rain becoming more widespread.

UK Outlook for Thursday 7 Jun 2018 to Thursday 21 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. Temperatures are likely to be near or slightly above average on the whole, with the potential for some warmer spells, especially at first.
