Tonight:

Showers clearing, with some late warm sunny intervals this evening. Cloud may thicken from the east overnight, with a chance of coastal fog and isolated heavy showers. Minimum temperature 9 °C.

A rather cloudy day for most, with fog along coasts. Perhaps dry initially, but scattered heavy and perhaps thundery showers developing through the day, perhaps becoming more persistent overnight. Maximum temperature 20 °C.

Outlook for Wednesday to Friday:

Organised heavy rain and strong winds on Wednesday. Cloudy and breezy with outbreaks of rain initially Thursday, though drier later and into Friday with sunny intervals. Temperatures around average.

Updated:

UK long range weather forecast

Most likely an unsettled start to the period with showers in the west and perhaps longer periods of rain in the northeast, although still some settled weather in between. Over the bank holiday weekend a band of rain likely to arrive from the west, becoming weaker as it moves east and becoming more showery in nature with scattered showers also following. Into the new week increasingly settled conditions more likely for most, though rain may threaten north-western areas whilst some southern or eastern areas occasionally less settled with showers more likely later in the period though there will be some sunshine between them, the best of this in south-western parts. Temperatures are likely to be a little above average, but some large spatial differences are likely.

Updated:

Relatively weak signals for conditions to be markedly different from climatology through the first half of June. That said, both temperatures and rainfall are more-likely to be a little above average overall, with further rain or showers (possibly heavy/thundery at times) but also some spells of warm sunshine.
