Moomin no one knows beyond a couple of weeks at most what summer will bring . John Hammond is not always correct either Let’s wait till we see what the Met Office and other professional bodies have to say .

I agree, but talen in isolation it's a very disappointing forecast.

I haven't read John Hammond's forecast, but from what you say his forecast seems to be somewhat at odds with those of the MetO from yesterday which talked of increasingly settled weather for much of the Uk as we go further into June.

Wednesday 29 May - Friday 7 June

Through the latter half of next week, there will be changeable weather with a mixture of sunshine and showers likely on most days, although there may be a few periods of longer lasting rain. The best of the drier and sunnier weather is likely to be in the south and east, although there is a chance of windier conditions in the south too. Into the following week, the weather may become more settled with high pressure more likely. This would bring mainly dry conditions, with sunny spells for most, although there may be more in the way of cloud and showers in eastern areas. Given generally low confidence in the forecast at this stage, there may also be some more changeable weather with cloud, wind and rain.

Saturday 8 June - Saturday 22 June

The general trend for this period is currently for a more settled picture across the UK. However, there remains the potential for further areas of low pressure to bring spells of rain or showers at times with some stronger winds. Confidence is low by mid June but the most likely scenario is that overall more settled weather is likely to prevail. Temperatures will start a little below normal, slowly becoming a little warmer.

BBC monthly outlook


Changeable; turning breezy and cooler for a time


Wednesday 22 May – Sunday 26 May

Mostly dry and rather warm, then wetter later.

Wednesday and Thursday will continue to see a lot of dry weather for many with spells of sunshine and gentle winds. However, the far north-east of Scotland will stay cloudier, cooler and breezy with rain at times. One or two showers cannot be ruled out elsewhere but most places will escape those. It will be quite warm, particularly in the south and east with highs into the low 20s Celsius for some. On Friday, spells of sunshine are likely to give way to a build-up of cloud for a time with showers spreading south-eastwards across the UK. However, the showers will be hit and miss with some places escaping dry again. This weekend the weather is likely to see a northwest-southeast split in the weather. The north-western half of the UK is likely to become cloudier and windier with outbreaks of rain, these perhaps most widespread on Sunday. Further south-east, it is likely to stay rather warm with sunshine at times but a few showers are likely as the weekend progresses.

Monday 27 May – Sunday 2 June

Breezy and showery at times. Rather cool.

Next week, the jet stream (a ribbon of strong winds in the upper atmosphere) is likely to make a reappearance over the UK, bringing more unsettled conditions from the Atlantic. It is likely to be a breezier and cooler week than this week with showers and occasional bands of rain moving from west to east across the country. Showers and rain are likely to be most frequent in the north and west. Southern and eastern areas of England should have some lengthier drier and brighter interludes of weather but with some useful rain there too. There is just a slight chance that high pressure moves in from the south-west later in the week to bring a lengthier drier and calmer period of weather then. Most likely, though, is for a rather showery, breezy and cool week.

Monday 3 June – Sunday 16 June

Slowly turning drier, calmer and warmer

The first full week of June is expected to see changeable weather conditions with some further bands of rain or showers spreading from the west at times. North-western areas of the UK are favoured to be wettest, including western Scotland, Northern Ireland and northwest England. Further south and east, there should be some decent periods of drier weather in-between the showers. By the second week of June, drier and calmer conditions are likely to become more widespread over the UK, thanks to an area of high pressure expanding northwards across Europe. It should turn warmer again with temperatures rising above the seasonal average at times. However, there is a chance that high pressure ends-up further north than expected, which could allow some showers, perhaps thundery, to move into southern areas at times.

Further ahead

Will the weather remain highly changeable from week to week with further swings between relatively calm and dry conditions and cooler, showery weather?
