UK long range weather forecast
Through the latter half of next week, there will be changeable weather with a mixture of sunshine and showers likely on most days, although there may be a few periods of longer lasting rain. The best of the drier and sunnier weather is likely to be in the south and east, although there is a chance of windier conditions in the south too. Into the following week, the weather may become more settled with high pressure more likely. This would bring mainly dry conditions, with sunny spells for most, although there may be more in the way of cloud and showers in eastern areas. Given generally low confidence in the forecast at this stage, there may also be some more changeable weather with cloud, wind and rain.
The general trend for this period is currently for a more settled picture across the UK. However, there remains the potential for further areas of low pressure to bring spells of rain or showers at times with some stronger winds. Confidence is low by mid June but the most likely scenario is that overall more settled weather is likely to prevail. Temperatures will start a little below normal, slowly becoming a little warmer.
