UK Forecast - June 01, 2012

The best of the sunshine will again be through Scotland, with the northwest fairing best of all. Over southern Ireland, west Wales and southwest England cloud will be thickening, the breeze increasing and rain arriving. This rain spreads east and north into most of Ireland, Wales and southwest England through the afternoon and into the evening, becoming heavy at times. An odd shower with a fair amount of cloud for the rest of the UK, but staying dry and bright in western Scotland. Tops at a warm 21C in the south in any sunshine, 9C in northern Scotland.
