UK long range weather forecast

The beginning of this period looks to be rather cool with a shift to a more changeable regime. Sunny spells and showers are likely across many parts, though the most frequent showers are expected across the north and east, perhaps with a longer spell of rain too. The best of the drier conditions appear to be in the south and west, where there should be a good deal of bright or sunny spells. It will be breezy or even windy at times, especially in the east. Looking further ahead, there seems to be a continuation of the showery setup at first, although there is considerable uncertainty. Longer drier, brighter spells will probably develop towards mid-June, especially across northern and western areas.


From the middle of June, there should be a return to more settled conditions with longer drier and brighter spells. This period should be generally drier than average, though there is still the possibility of some more changeable spells, these becoming more focused across northwestern areas later in the month. Temperatures are more likely to be above average in the south, but nearer normal further north.
