UK long range weather forecast

At the start of this period a northwest/southeast divide is possible, with a band of rain or showers at times in the northwest. Elsewhere, plenty of fine and dry weather, although there is a risk of some thicker cloud and showers, perhaps thundery, pushing into the far south and southwest. Rather windy at first in the northwest. Changeable and unsettled weather likely to continue into the start of the following week. More settled patterns and overall drier conditions probable towards the end of the month. Still some showers or longer spells of rain in places, but probably a reasonable amount of fine, dry weather. Temperatures looking to be near average for most throughout, although some warmer spells are possible at times.

Updated:

There is a trend towards more settled patterns and overall drier conditions for the beginning of this period. This will generally lead to fine and dry weather across much of the UK, but some showers or longer spells of rain are still possible in places. Temperatures will probably be warm or very warm at first but may become nearer to average though mid-June, with some warm spells remaining possible.
