A mixed week
Driest to the south

Issued: 0900 Sunday 17th June 2018
Duty forecaster: Dr. Simon Keeling

rather mixed especially in the north, but dry with good spells of sunshine to the souths

Rather mixed conditions are expected in the coming week. High pressure does try to have an influence over the weather and so rainfall amounts will be low. It is likely that most rain occurs through Scotland, Northern Ireland and the far northwest of England, although amounts are below average. Bits of rain head further south but these are very limited. The best sunshine in southern areas too. Temperatures varying, but generally warm.

Wednesday 20/6/18
An area of low pressure crossing Scotland on Wednesday brings cloud and rain here. The rain may be heavy at times in northern and western areas. Rain affecting Northern Ireland and also western coast of Ireland. The rain area slipsinto northwest England although gets lighter as it reaches Wales later. Elsewhere that day should be generally bright with sunny spells, the best of these in eastern and southern England. Winds will be moderate south-westerly but will be fresh on western coasts. Temperatures reaching highs of 26°C in south-east England but only 12°C in the wetter north west of Scotland.
