UK Plaintext Forecasts

Issued by the Met Office on 2019-05-26 at 04:00:00

Southwest England

Cloudy and damp morning, turning drier and brighter later.


A breezy, cloudy morning with outbreaks of mostly light rain and drizzle, and misty conditions around the coasts and over the hills. It'll eventually turn drier and brighter through the afternoon when it will feel fresher too. Maximum Temperature 18C.


A dry night will then follow with clear spells for most. It will be breezy at times and will feel noticeably colder than last night. Minimum Temperature 6C.


A fresh, dry and bright start to Bank Holiday Monday. Dry for most with sunny spells, although isolated showers are possible through the afternoon, mostly in the north and east. Maximum Temperature 18C.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday

Rather cool on Tuesday, with sunny spells and scattered heavy showers, with a risk of thunder. Fewer showers on Wednesday. Cloudier and milder with rain and drizzle likely 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.
