UK long range weather forecast

There are increasing signs that many parts will become drier, brighter and very warm to start the period with the warmest and driest weather focused across the southeast of the UK. However, northwestern parts will probably stay more unsettled with further rain at times. Somewhat cooler conditions may follow from the west over the weekend, perhaps preceded by showers or thunderstorms. For the following week, a fair amount of dry, bright warm weather looks likely for much of the UK with the possibility of some further very warm weather, especially in the southeast. There may well be more changeable, breezy interludes with some rain or showers, more especially for northwestern areas where temperatures will be generally nearer normal.

Updated:

This period is likely to see a mixture of dry and settled conditions, interspersed with occasional bouts of wetter and windier weather. The majority of the unsettled weather seems more likely to be in the northwest, with the south and southeast seeing the driest conditions. Temperatures will probably be around or slightly above the average for this time of year. There may be further short lived very warm spells, these more likely across the south or southeast. There are some tentative signs that conditions could become more widely dry and settled across the UK towards the end of the month.
