Important note about long range weather forecasts: It is considered impossible to say with certainty what the weather will be like more than a few days ahead in the UK. Long range forecasts on TheWeatherOutlook have not been independently verified, and we make no claims for their accuracy. A range of factors including seasonal computer models, recent weather patterns, sea surface temperatures and teleconnections are considered when making the forecasts.

Forecast overview

The forecast headline is for a warmer than average summer in most of the UK. On balance there is considered to be a greater chance of above rather than below average rainfall.


The aggregated Central England Temperature (CET) for June, July and August is forecast to be 0.5C to 1.5C above the average.


Over the three month period precipitation levels are forecast to be between 95% to 115% of the average.



Slightly above average.


Slightly above average.

First half

The first half of the month brings mixed weather, with all parts of the country seeing showers or longer spells of rain. Temperatures over the period are forecast to be a little below the seasonal average. Some warm sunny days are likely, however they will probably be more than offset by cooler and wetter ones. There is the possibility of rain becoming heavy and thundery in places.

Second half

The second half of June is expected to see changeable weather being replaced by a dry, fine and warm spell. At times it could become very warm or even hot in southern and central parts with the risk of thundery conditions increasing. Later on unsettled and cooler periods return from the west, but the south east may remain mostly dry.

Second half

Mixed weather is expected during the second half of the month. Temperatures over the period will probably be slightly above the seasonal average. Some very warm days are likely, but cool and wet days are also probable. The heaviest rainfall may be in the south and south west where it possibly becomes thundery at times.
