    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Sunday 22 May 2022 to Tuesday 31 May 2022:

    On Sunday and into the start of next week, southern parts of the UK likely staying mostly fine and dry with light winds. Still a chance of showers, and a low risk that some of these will be heavy at times. Further north it is likely to be cloudier and breezier, particularly around coasts, with showers that could merge into some longer spells of rain. Temperatures close to average, but perhaps below average in the northwest, though it will still feel warm in the sunshine. Towards the end of next week, rain or showers are possible, most likely in the northeast by this stage, where it will be breezy. Drier further southwest with lighter winds. Most areas becoming mainly dry through the end of May.

    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.
