    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Saturday 28 May 2022 to Monday 6 Jun 2022:

    Over the weekend, fine and dry weather with clear and sunny spells expected for most, however some cloud and light showers remain possible, especially in the north and east. Despite a chilly start on Saturday, near normal temperatures can be expected for most, perhaps feeling warmer in the south and southwest. Into the following week, the weather is likely to become more settled, with any few showers most likely to be seen in the north and east, where it may feel fresher and cooler. This means above average temperatures away from the north and east, with drier conditions expected for most. As we move into the beginning of June, drier than average conditions are expected to persist overall.

    In the beginning of June, we can expect to see a lot of dry weather across the UK.

Later on in June, we may however see some less settled and cooler weather, particularly in northern regions.
