Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Tuesday 29 May 2018 to Thursday 7 Jun 2018:

Through the early part of next week, there will be a good deal of dry, fine and sunny weather across the UK. Mist and low cloud may continue to affect eastern coastal districts. There is also a risk of scattered thunderstorms across the south and southwest, especially through Wednesday. It will stay very warm for most, locally hot in the south, although temperatures may fall closer to average by Wednesday. 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. There is a continued threat of thundery showers across central and southern areas, and the far west could see rain at times. After a very warm start, temperatures are likely to fall closer to average.

UK Outlook for Friday 8 Jun 2018 to Friday 22 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, especially at the start of the period. Temperatures are likely to be near or slightly above average on the whole, with the potential for some warmer spells, especially at first.
