Pleasantly warm for many; cool eastern coasts
High pressure located north of Britain brings plenty of fair weather for the first week of June. An easterly pattern will dominate, resulting in western areas seeing the best of the sunshine and warmth, whilst western coasts are likely to see low cloud at times, and cooler temperatures. A risk of localised showers, most likely later in the week when humidity will tend to increase.

High pressure will be centred toward the north and east of Britain. A general easterly airflow, but winds typically light. The strongest breeze across south-eastern coastal districts. Some murk on eastern coasts, otherwise lots of strong sunshine. Dry overall. Small chance of an isolated shower inland. An east to west contrast in temperature, from 13C on eastern coasts, up to 23C to the lee of high ground in the west.
Pressure becomes slack. Dry overall, although a possibility of showers or perhaps a thunderstorm popping up locally, these moving around slowly, but should be very isolated. Sunny skies for most places, variable cloud building up through the day. Light winds and coastal sea breezes. Highs 19 to 24C for many, locally warmer south-east, but much cooler on eastern coasts.
A slack pressure pattern with little wind, although a northwesterly breeze may freshen for Ireland and western coasts of Britain. Humidity may increase again, which may allow local showers or thunderstorms to break out, but again these will be very hit and miss. Hazy sunshine. Some coastal fog. Warmer, reaching 22 to 26C in central and southern areas, but cooler on coasts.
Confidence is low. A ridge of high pressure is expected to build across north-western areas. Many places may escape dry, but a risk of thundery bursts across southern districts where it will be warm and humid. Sea breezes. Highs 18 to 25C.
A possibility of thundery rain for some, most likely central and southern regions, but confidence is low. Northern areas may escape dry, with variable cloud. Chance of patchy rain reaching the far north-west. Highs 17 to 25C.
A trend toward a west or northwesterly breeze, with high pressure centred toward the south-west. A few showers possible, but many places may stay dry and bright. Highs 16 to 24C, warmest south-west.
