UK long range weather forecast

The period will start with scattered showers and sunny spells for most, gradually easing from the west through Sunday. More settled conditions are expected into the start of next week, although with a risk of showers at times continuing in the north. A generally more settled regime persists for much of this period, although occasional spells of more organised cloud and rain may continue to affect northern parts at times. Southern and eastern areas are most likely to see a good deal of dry and sunny conditions through the period. Temperatures feeling near normal to rather cool in the northwest, although likely increasing above normal towards the end of the period as settled conditions become more widespread. In the south and east, temperatures above average to rather warm.

Updated:

The south is likely to see more settled conditions, while any unsettled weather will be confined mostly to the north, although may occasionally extend to the rest of the UK through the middle of July. The further we move through the period, the greater the chance of settled, dry and fine weather becoming more widespread. Temperatures are likely to trend near or above average initially and may become widely warm towards the end of the month, especially across the south.
