Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Monday 28 May 2018 to Wednesday 6 Jun 2018:

Bank Holiday Monday will be fine and very warm for many, although cooler along some North Sea coasts with mist and fog. Scattered thunderstorms could affect southern and some central areas, but many will remain dry. Very warm and perhaps hot weather will continue for most through the end of May with plenty of sunshine, but with the risk of showers or thunderstorms more widely. With light easterly winds, North Sea coasts will often be cooler and cloudier. Into early June, confidence becomes low but most should remain dry and warm, although probably cooler than at the end of May. However, there will be an increasing chance of somewhat more changeable weather with the risk of showery rain becoming more widespread.

UK Outlook for Thursday 7 Jun 2018 to Thursday 21 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. Temperatures are likely to be near or slightly above average on the whole, with the potential for some warmer spells, especially at first.
