UK long range weather forecast
There is a lot of uncertainty at this stage for the weekend's weather, but we will probably see the unsettled weather continuing across the far north and northwest, where it will often be wet and windy with a risk of coastal gales. For the rest of the UK though it may well be a largely dry and bright weekend. Temperatures will generally be above average across the south, but remaining closer to normal in the north. During the remainder of the month high pressure should remain close by, bringing periods of settled weather and warmer conditions, especially across southern areas, although with a chance of some thundery showers moving up from the near continent. Northern parts of the UK may see further spells of wet and windy weather.
Confidence remains rather low during this period. However, there are signs that high pressure will dominate the weather across much of the UK. Southern areas are most likely to see the driest and sunniest weather at first, perhaps with some lingering wet and potentially windy conditions affecting the north. However, longer spells of dry and sunny weather may occasionally develop across all parts. Temperatures are generally likely to be warmer than average, although there is little indication of anything exceptional at this time.
