Windier on Thursday with isolated showers, fine by the weekend.

This Evening and Tonight:

Mainly dry to end the day with a mixture of cloud and occasional sunny spells. Any isolated showers fading away to leave clear spells overnight. An increasing chance of heavy showers arriving by the morning. Northwesterly winds freshening later. Mild. Minimum temperature 10 °C.

Thursday:

A windier day, especially on north facing coasts. Often cloudy with occasional sunny intervals, these more frequent by the afternoon. Isolated showers, heaviest in eastern counties. Feeling rather cool. Maximum temperature 18 °C.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

A small chance of a light shower on Friday but otherwise high pressure will bring dry and settled weather with periods of warm sunshine, occasional patchy cloud and light winds.

Updated:

UK long range weather forecast

In early June, conditions are likely to be generally settled due to the influence of high pressure extending across much of the country. A few showers or patchy rain possible in places, most likely in the northwest, but for most it will be a dry at the start of the period with plenty of sunshine, especially in the southeast. Feeling warm generally though cooler near the coast where onshore breezes develop. This fair weather is likely to continue for a few days into the following week, but thereafter the outlook becomes more uncertain. The south of the UK will probably be drier, although not ruling out scattered showers at times. Cooler and cloudier further northwest, where rain is more likely. Temperatures probably around normal or a little above average.

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.
