Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Thursday 31 May 2018 to Saturday 9 Jun 2018:

Towards the end of next week and into the weekend, there will be a good deal of dry, fine and sunny weather across the UK. However, some mist and low cloud may affect eastern coastal districts, but also some sunny spells. There is the risk of heavy showers and thunderstorms developing, mainly across central and southern areas. Staying very warm for most, but perhaps cooler along east and northeastern coastal areas. For the rest of the period, there will probably be a good deal of dry weather with sunny spells, best of which is likely to be in the north. However, it will probably turn more changeable across the UK with rain or showers developing quite widely, with temperatures falling closer to the average during early June.

UK Outlook for Sunday 10 Jun 2018 to Sunday 24 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, particularly from mid June onwards. Temperatures are likely to be near or slightly above average on the whole, with the potential for some warmer spells, more probable towards the end of the period.
