UK long range weather forecast

High confidence for this period as high pressure likely to be close to, or over the UK giving a mostly settled outlook, with any uncertainty existing with respect to the orientation of this high. Currently the strongest signals suggest an initial placement over the south of the UK before transferring to the north later next week. This means that most areas will stay fine and dry with plenty of sunny spells, and that any spells of rain and stronger winds are most likely to the far north and west of the UK where front incursions are most likely. Temperatures are likely to remain around average for this time of year. Where skies clear overnight frost and fog patches may become prevalent.


Settled conditions are likely to continue, though Atlantic frontal systems may make more progress across the country at times, introducing occasional wetter weather. However, the overall signal suggests drier than average weather with near normal temperatures are most likely for the rest of the period, though occasional colder spells cannot be ruled out.
