Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Friday 1 Jun 2018 to Sunday 10 Jun 2018:

By the end of the week and during the weekend, there will be a good deal of dry and fine weather around, with sunny spells. However, there is likely to be some mist and low cloud affecting some eastern coastal districts, although with some sunny spells. However, thundery showers continuing on Friday, before dying out on Saturday from the north. Into next week, there will probably be a good deal of dry weather around, with sunny spells. The driest and sunniest conditions likely to be in the north, with the south perhaps cloudier with risk of thundery showers, especially at first, but probably becoming drier and brighter later. After a warm start, temperatures probably falling, but still likely to be above average.

UK Outlook for Monday 11 Jun 2018 to Monday 25 Jun 2018:

Through this whole period signals are mixed and weak, which generally gives low or very low confidence at this stage. On balance, probably more generally changeable than of late, with spells of rain or showers becoming more frequent and widespread at times, especially during the first half of the period. However, all parts of the country are likely to see some settled spells of weather, particularly in the second half of June. Temperatures probably overall near or slightly above normal. However, there is the potential for further very warm spells of weather to develop across the UK, which are more likely to occur later in the month.
