London and Southeast England

Cloudy with patchy rain at times, drier and brighter later.


A dry start with early sun, but soon clouding over, with patchy rain spreading west to east during the late morning and early afternoon. Gradually becoming drier and brighter from the west later in the afternoon, with rain dying out. Maximum Temperature 19C.


A dry evening for all areas with cloud breaking to give plenty of late sun. Remaining dry overnight with long clear spells, though turning rather cool Minimum Temperature 7C.


A dry start with early sun, but with isolated showers developing from late morning and continuing throughout the day. Some good sunny spells outside of showers. Maximum Temperature 18C.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday

Tuesday sees further daytime showers, some heavy. Wednesday drier with just isolated light showers. Thursday cloudy and warmer, with outbreaks of rain and drizzle, and feeling humid. Light winds throughout.

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.
