UK long range weather forecast

Much of central and southeast England should see a good deal of dry and settled weather next weekend with plenty of sunshine, though a little breezy. Temperatures will generally be very warm, but there is the risk of some thunderstorms breaking out at times. Cloud and outbreaks of rain seem most likely for Scotland and some other northern and western areas, where it will probably feel cooler. Looking ahead, there appears to be a shift to a more unsettled regime at first. Cloud and spells of rain may spread to most parts of the UK, but will predominately remain in the northwest. Temperatures should return to around average and may go slightly below in places.


Mostly dry and settled during this period for most parts of the UK. Some spells of unsettled, wetter weather may develop at times, particularly across the north of the UK, but these are likely to be short-lived. Temperatures are likely to be close to or above average.
