UK Forecast- May 30, 2016
Rain spreads west
Dull midweek, hill fog
Low pressure over Europe pushes a front slowly west across England, bringing persistent rain for several hours, some heavy bursts, mostly eastern counties early morning, then affecting much of central England from Yorkshire to the south coast in the afternoon. Meanwhile, Wales & south-west England, plus Scotland & Ireland escape dry all day, with plenty of sunshine. Blustery and cool northerly winds. Highs 12 to 15C east, 17 to 20C in west.
The remnants of rain continues to push west across England into Wales, some heavy bursts still possible into the night. Rain may also persist across the hills of north-east England, giving a risk of prolonged heavy falls around the North York Moors. Extensive fog across most hills, and some coasts. Scotland & Ireland largely dry. Remaining blustery. Staying mild, lowest temperatures 10 to 13C for many, but locally 5 to 8C in Scotland.
Weak fronts extending across England & Wales bring extensive low cloud and outbreaks of rain or drizzle to many areas, particularly in a swathe across central areas from south-west to north-east. Foggy on many hills, and also some east coasts. Scotland should be brighter - best sunshine in the west. Feeling cool in a northerly breeze, just 10 to 12C in the north-east. Highs 15 to 17C in south & west. Locally 20C western Scotland.
High pressure centred to the north-west of the British Isles maintains a rather cool north-easterly breeze. A few showers are possible, mainly toward the south-west, but many places will be dry. Low cloud may persist across eastern districts, perhaps as far inland as the Pennines, but sunshine should increasingly break through. Temperatures struggling near 12C on the east coast, but rising to 17 to 19C in central & western parts.
