Summer goes missing this week

[Updated 06:45 03/06/2019]

Overcast weather

The weather isn't looking too bad today but the outlook is an unsettled and unseasonable one. Areas of low pressure stay close to the UK and they bring an ongoing risk of rain. Temperatures will generally be on the low side for June and at times it becomes quite windy....READ IN FULL

Monday starts with showery rain in the north of the UK. The south is mainly dry. The rest of the day brings scattered showers and sunny spells to England and Wales. In Scotland and Northern Ireland heavy showers at times merge to give longer periods of rain. It will be windy in the north.

Temperatures range from 12C (54F) in the far north west to 22C (72F) in south eastern England. See the rain radar for the latest view.

Low pressure dominates

By Wednesday an area of low pressure will be sitting over the UK. It keeps things showery generally and in the northwest more prolonged outbreaks of rain are possible. 

Unsettled and cool conditions continue through the rest of the week. All regions have showers or more prolonged spells of rain. It will be cool for the time of year and at times windy. Drier and brighter periods are most likely to be in the south east. 

The mixed theme continues next week. Some computer model runs show it becoming a lot warmer, but most have the risk of showers or longer spells of rain continuing.
