Tuesday 26/05/20
High pressure influences the southern half of Britain, keeping things generally dry and warm with some sunshine. Weak fronts passing across northern areas on a westerly breeze produce thicker cloud toward the west & northwest, with a little rain locally, but amounts small. Temperatures ranging from 15C in the northwest, to 21 to 23C in central & southern England.

Wednesday 27/05/20
High pressure stays in charge with dry weather prevailing for many. Remnants of weak fronts may give some cloudier periods for northern and western districts, whilst southern and eastern parts will fare best for sunshine. Light winds and coastal sea breeezes. A little patchy rain or drizzle may come into western Scotland and Ireland. Highs of 14 to 23C.

Thursday 28/05/20
A cloudier day is likely with a risk of some patchy rain moving in from the west as fronts push in from the Atlantic. Some uncertainty about how far south & east this will spread. Likely to be wettest in the west with the best of the sun over eastern England. Light to moderate west or southwesterly winds. Highs of 16 to 21C.

Friday 29/05/20
A general southwest to westerly flow is likely, with variable cloud and a few local showers, but many places are likely to be often dry. Windier in northern Scotland, with rain more frequent at times. Highs at 16 to 21C.

Saturday 30/05/20
Low pressure to the northwest may bring some rain again to western Scotland, and perhaps a few showers elsewhere, but many southern and eastern districts should stay mainly dry. Highs at 17 to 22C.

Sunday 31/05/20
Pressure tends to build into Sunday with dry weather prevailing for most. A weak trough may develop to the west bringing some showers into parts of Scotland and Ireland at times. Highs of 15 to 23C.
