UK Outlook for Wednesday 30 May 2018 to Friday 8 Jun 2018:

Through the middle part of next week, there will be a good deal of dry, fine and sunny weather across the UK. Mist and low cloud will probably be less extensive across eastern coastal districts. There is also a risk of scattered thunderstorms across central and southern areas. It will stay very warm for most. 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 and west. There is a continued threat of thundery showers, mainly across central and southern areas, and the far west could see cloud and rain at times. After a very warm start, temperatures are likely to fall but probably staying slightly above average.

UK Outlook for Saturday 9 Jun 2018 to Saturday 23 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, particularly from mid June onwards. Temperatures are likely to be near or slightly above average on the whole, with the potential for some warmer spells, more probable towards the end of the period.
