Updated: 14:25 on Mon 21 May 2018 BST

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Becoming dry for many, with sunshine and some showers tomorrow.

This Evening and Tonight:

Daytime showers and rain will ease for many tonight, however there will be a risk of thunder in the southeast. Clear skies will develop but some low cloud, mist and fog are likely over east Scotland and northeast England.

Tuesday:

Tuesday will be largely warm and sunny, although low cloud and fog will persist on some northeastern coasts. There will also be the risk of thunderstorms over England and Wales.

Outlook for Wednesday to Friday:

Many places stay warm and dry, after early mist and fog clear. East coasts will be much cooler generally. The risk of thunderstorms increases in southern areas later this week.

Updated: 15:00 on Mon 21 May 2018 BST

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Saturday 26 May 2018 to Monday 4 Jun 2018:

The Bank Holiday weekend will be mostly fine and sunny, after any early mist and fog has cleared. Scattered thunderstorms could affect southern and central areas at times however, with mist and low cloud possibly affecting the east coast. It will be warm or very warm in the south and west, but often much cooler near eastern coasts. There will also be a brisk easterly wind across southern areas. Similar conditions will prevail into next week, but some longer spells of heavy, thundery rain may move northwards into central parts. Into the beginning of June confidence is low, but it will most likely remain overall drier and warmer than average. However there will be an increasing chance of more unsettled, cooler conditions developing.

UK Outlook for Tuesday 5 Jun 2018 to Tuesday 19 Jun 2018:

For the beginning of June there is very low confidence in the type of weather pattern expected across the UK. Conditions are likely to become generally more unsettled as we head towards the middle of the month, with periods of rain or showers being more frequent and widespread. There will still be some more settled spells at times, these most likely in the south and southeast. Temperatures will probably be near or slightly above normal, but there is continued potential for further very warm spells.
