Whole UK

Rain moving southeast, lingering across Scotland where windy.


Rain, heavy at times, lingering over much of northern and central Scotland. Otherwise, areas of showery rain, locally heavy, moving eastwards with cooler, brighter and drier weather following. Windy for the northern half of the UK.


Rain over Scotland slowly easing. Clear spells and some showers in the north and west, mostly dry elsewhere. Windy in the north with some coastal gales, colder than last night.


Southern England mostly dry with isolated afternoon showers. Elsewhere, sunny spells and showers, heavy at times with a risk of thunder. Feeling cooler and fresher.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday

Cool on Tuesday, with sunny spells and scattered showers, heavy in England and Wales. Showers more isolated from Wednesday, but cloud and rain will spread across southern areas.

UK Outlook for Thursday 30 May 2019 to Saturday 8 Jun 2019

On Thursday and Friday changeable, breezy weather is likely to prevail, with a mixture of showers and some longer spells of rain. However parts of the north will probably stay drier and brighter at first with only isolated showers. Into next weekend and the start of the following week, there is likely to be a change towards more settled conditions from the southwest. This would bring drier conditions with some sunny spells here, however showers or longer spells of rain may continue further north. Through the rest of the period confidence is low, and any more generally settled weather conditions may still be interspersed by occasional bouts of wetter and windier weather. Temperatures will start rather cool, but will soon recover to near or a little above normal.

UK Outlook for Sunday 9 Jun 2019 to Sunday 23 Jun 2019

Whilst confidence is low throughout this period, the most probable trend for the middle two weeks of June is for an increasingly settled weather picture across the UK. Whilst this may bring spells of dry and often sunny weather, warmer day time temperatures may occasionally trigger heavy, possibly thundery showers. However there still remains a risk of areas of low pressure bringing longer spells of rain across the UK at times, perhaps with some stronger winds. Temperatures will be near normal or warm overall for the time of year.
