UK forecast for the next 5 days


Warm with sunny spells. Isolated thunderstorms in the south later.


Low cloud across northeast Britain will soon burn back towards the coasts where it will linger all day. Spells of warm sunshine will develop for most, but these will trigger afternoon showers and isolated thunderstorms in the south and west.


Thundery showers die out through the evening leaving a dry night, but low cloud will spread inland from the North Sea giving many places a misty end to the night.


Another bright day in the west, but a cloudier day elsewhere and misty along North Sea coasts. Thundery showers may spread to the south at times. Feeling cooler for most

Outlook for Wednesday to Friday:

A changeable period, with further thunderstorms across England and Wales, some spreading into northern parts on Wednesday night. Still plenty of dry and bright weather around and generally very warm.

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Saturday 2 Jun 2018 to Monday 11 Jun 2018:

Next weekend, there will be a good deal of dry and fine weather, with sunny spells. There is likely to be some mist and low cloud affecting eastern coastal districts, although with some sunny spells. Thundery showers are likely to continue on Saturday, before easing Sunday, with the driest conditions in the north. Into next week, there will probably be a good deal of dry weather around, with some sunshine. The driest and sunniest conditions are likely to be in the north and west. The south will perhaps be cloudier, with the risk of thundery showers, especially at first, but it will probably become drier and brighter later. The warmest weather will likely be in the west, with a greater chance of cooler conditions compared to recently across the southeast.

UK Outlook for Tuesday 12 Jun 2018 to Tuesday 26 Jun 2018:

Through this whole period signals are mixed and weak, which generally gives low or very low confidence at this stage. On balance, it will probably be more changeable than of late, with spells of rain or showers becoming more frequent and widespread at times, especially during the first half of the period. All parts of the country are likely to see some settled spells of weather though, particularly in the second half of June in the south of the UK. Temperatures overall will likely be near or slightly above normal. There is the potential for further very warm spells of weather to develop mainly in the south however, with northwestern areas likely to be cooler than earlier in the month.
