Updated:

UK long range weather forecast

In early June, it looks likely there will be a split in conditions across the UK. Further south, higher pressure is likely to continue to dominate, although perhaps with some cloudier interludes and the patchy rain. The north is likely to see more in the way of unsettled weather, with a mix of blustery showers and sunny spells. Temperatures generally around average in the south, but occasionally rather cool in the north, especially along exposed coasts. Thereafter the outlook becomes more uncertain. The south of the UK will probably continue to be drier, although it's not possible to rule out scattered showers at times. Cooler and cloudier further northwest, where rain is more likely. Temperatures probably around normal.

Updated:

Current indications are that the chances of high pressure or low pressure dominating are fairly balanced for this period. There is no strong signal for either dry or wet conditions being the more prominent feature of the weather. On balance, it is probable that a continuation of variable, slow moving weather patterns are likely through much of June, similar to that which has been experienced through May. However, with potentially slow moving weather systems there is still a chance that longer-lived drier, or even wetter, spells are entirely possible too. Temperatures are most likely to be around or above normal.
