UK long range weather forecast
Thursday sees a gradual return to more unsettled conditions. Early rain in the north will clear leaving a few showers. Elsewhere after a mostly dry morning with sunny spells, strengthening winds will spread cloud and rain northeastwards across many west and southwestern parts of England and Wales. This more changeable weather is expected to continue into the Bank Holiday weekend with all parts seeing rain or showers at times, although by Monday the southwest should see some drier and brighter, more settled conditions. Through the rest of the period, confidence is low, but it is probable that the weather will change only slowly, with drier more settled spells occasionally interspersed by wetter, more unsettled weather. Temperatures are likely to be close to or slightly above average.
Confidence in the forecast is low for the first half of June, but the most likely scenario is for a slowly evolving weather pattern to become established, with Atlantic weather systems struggling to make eastwards progress across the UK. Overall, settled weather is most likely across northern parts of the UK, but these settled spells will extend to all areas at times. These periods of drier and settled weather will occasionally be punctuated by cooler, showery spells as Atlantic weather systems arrive from the west, albeit temporarily. Temperatures are likely to trend closer to normal as we move through June.
