UK Outlook for Friday 25 May 2018 to Sunday 3 Jun 2018:

Friday will be mainly dry with sunny spells after any early mist has cleared. Scattered thunderstorms could affect southern and central areas at times with mist and low cloud possibly affecting the east coast at times. It will be warm or very warm in the west, but cooler near eastern coasts. There will be a good deal of dry weather with sunny spells for the Bank Holiday weekend with further thundery showers possible across central and southern parts. Remaining warmest in the west and cooler along eastern coasts with a brisk northeasterly wind. The end of May and beginning of June will most likely remain overall drier and warmer than average, with an increasing chance of more unsettled conditions developing towards the end of the period.

UK Outlook for Sunday 3 Jun 2018 to Sunday 17 Jun 2018:

As we head into 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.
