    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Saturday 21 May 2022 to Monday 30 May 2022:

    At the start of this period a northwest/southeast divide is most likely, with moderate winds and scattered showers at times in the northwest. Elsewhere, plenty of fine and dry weather, although there is a risk of some thicker cloud and showers, perhaps thundery, pushing into the far south and southwest at times. The changeable and unsettled weather is likely to continue into the start of the following week. More settled patterns and overall drier conditions probable towards the end of the month. Still some showers or longer spells of rain in places, but probably a reasonable amount of fine, dry weather. Temperatures looking to be near average for most throughout, although some warmer spells are possible at times, particularly in the east and southeast.

    UK Outlook for Tuesday 31 May 2022 to Tuesday 14 Jun 2022:

    There is a trend towards more settled patterns and overall drier conditions for the beginning of this period. This will generally lead to fine and dry weather across much of the UK, but some showers or longer spells of rain are still possible in places. Temperatures will probably be above average at first but may become nearer to average through mid-June, with some warm spells remaining possible.
