Northwest England

Outbreaks of rain at first, brightening up later.


Outbreaks of showery rain at first, heavy at times. Drier and brighter conditions with sunny spells spreading east from late morning. Breezy and feeling fresher than recent days. Pleasant in the sunshine. Maximum Temperature 18C.


Mostly dry with clear spells overnight, but some showers are likely towards dawn. Rather breezy and feeling colder than last night. Minimum Temperature 8C.


A mixture of sunshine and showers for Bank Holiday Monday. The showers heavy at times with a risk of thunder, however some places remaining dry throughout. Maximum Temperature 17C.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday

Rather cool on Tuesday, with sunny spells and scattered heavy showers. Fewer showers on Wednesday. Probably cloudier and milder with patchy rain and drizzle possible 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.
