Regional Forecast for London & South East England

Headline:

Remaining dry and sunny. Light winds, and feeling very warm.

This Evening and Tonight:

A fine end to the day with with plenty of warm evening sunshine. Light winds and largely clear skies will continue overnight, though it will likely turn cool in some rural spots. Minimum temperature 9 °C.

Monday:

A fine, and largely sunny day is expected. Turning very warm or hot, especially away from the immediate coast, where it will feel a little fresher in any onshore breeze. Maximum temperature 28 °C.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

Very warm, perhaps occasionally hot in west, with plenty of dry, sunny weather. However eastern parts likely a little cooler, especially along Kent coast, due to a noticeable onshore breeze.

Updated: 14:10 on Sun 24 Jun 2018 BST

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Largely dry and sunny and becoming hot into next week.

This Evening and Tonight:

Another largely dry, clear night and becoming quite cool once again away from larger towns and cities in the south. Perhaps cloudier with occasional drizzle across northern and northwestern Scotland.

Monday:

Unbroken sunshine for many parts of the UK with temperatures higher than the weekend. Cloudier and cooler across northern Scotland, and also cooler where sea breezes develop.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

Dry, mostly sunny and becoming hot across central, western and some northern areas. Somewhat less hot across the southeast at least at first, and also where sea breezes develop.

Updated: 15:45 on Sun 24 Jun 2018 BST

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Friday 29 Jun 2018 to Sunday 8 Jul 2018:

The final few days of June will stay dry and sunny across much of the UK, although it may be cloudier with a chance of rain at times in the far north of Scotland. It will feel cooler than of late across parts of Scotland but elsewhere it will remain very warm or hot. The heat may spark a few showers or an isolated thunderstorm during the first week of July, but the majority of the UK will stay fine and dry. However, most areas should continue to see plenty of fine, sunny and very warm weather. Northwestern areas may however begin to see cloudier conditions pushing in, with the chance of some wet and windier weather here at times.

UK Outlook for Monday 9 Jul 2018 to Monday 23 Jul 2018:

The most likely scenario is that we will see a good deal of dry and settled weather across many parts of the UK with very warm temperatures likely at times. There are some early indications that in the north and west, more changeable conditions could bring cloudier skies, and possibly some wet and windy weather at times. There may also be some interludes of more unsettled, cooler conditions bringing some outbreaks of rain or showers across the rest of the UK at times, but these will be short lived with dry, fine weather likely for most of the time.
