Cloudy with occasionally heavy rain. Becoming breezy.


A cloudy and wet day with rain, the rain heavy and persistent at times. Becoming windy across the Hebrides, west coast and the far north. Maximum Temperature 12C.


Cloudy with spells of rain in the evening then becoming drier overnight with clear spells and scattered showers. Strong winds over the Hebrides becoming northerly, easing overnight. Minimum Temperature 4C.


A few showers, these most frequent across Skye and Lochaber. Drier conditions and longer sunny spells across the north. Light northerly winds. Maximum Temperature 12C.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday

A mixture of sunny spells and showers on Tuesday and Wednesday. Turning cooler with perhaps a touch of overnight frost. Mainly dry with longer sunny spells on Thursday.

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.
