UK forecast for the next 5 days


Dry with sunshine for most


Showers across mainland Scotland will clear, but patchy rain will affect Sheltand until evening. Dry elsewhere with a fresher feel but still plenty of strong sunshine. Breezy in the north and east with gales possible in the far northeast.


Dry and cool with clear skies in many areas. Winds will ease in the northeast. Turning cloudier later in the far north with some patchy rain possible soon after dawn.

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Tuesday 26 Jun 2018 to Thursday 5 Jul 2018:

The final week of June will see plenty of dry and sunny weather across most of the UK, with only the far north and northwest seeing cloudier skies at times, with rain possible. With the fine weather, temperatures will continue to rise for all parts, but especially so in the south where it could turn hot. The heat may spark an isolated thunderstorm, with the risk increasing towards next weekend, especially over high ground, although the majority will stay dry. As we head into the start of July confidence reduces, but most areas should continue to see plenty of fine, sunny and very warm weather. Northern and some western areas may however begin to see cloudier conditions pushing in, with the chance of some rain and stronger winds here.

UK Outlook for Friday 6 Jul 2018 to Friday 20 Jul 2018:

Although confidence remains low through July, early indications bring a good deal of dry and settled weather across many parts of the UK. However, there are some signs that more changeable weather may develop at times, especially in the north, and possibly the west, potentially leading to cloud, stronger winds and some rain. Where it turns more changeable it will also become cooler, but where the dry and settled weather continues, it will remain very warm, especially in the south and southeast.
