Met Office say ‘hint’ of weather changing in June but give warning

In Europe
June 08, 2024

Those hoping for a sunny weekend, especially Parklife goers, will have to settle for cool and windy weather as better weather is not due until the end of the month.

Wind is coming down on the UK from the north, with high pressure in the west and low pressure sitting to the north-east of the country, the Met Office’s senior operational meteorologist, Marco Petagna, has said.

He continued by stating that the weather will remain unsettled into next week but there is a ‘hint’ the weather could settle down at the end of the month. However, they warned that any change in the weather is still ‘quite a way off’.

On Saturday the South and South East will patches of rain that will gradually come away while Wales, Northern Ireland, West Midlands and the North of England could see the odd shower. Petagna said it the weather would be colder up north, saying that it will be ‘chilly’ with temperatures on Saturday likely to stay between 11C and 15C.

The average temperature for this time of year is typically between 11C and 16C in the north making this weekend’s weather most likely to be ‘average or just below’ but the showers and breezes will make it feel much colder. The rain is expected to move to other parts of the country overnight into Sunday.

Across Northern Ireland, south-west Scotland, parts of northern England and North Wales there will be outbreaks of rain on Sunday, with the south seeing sunshine despite staying chilly, with frost visible first thing in the morning.

Temperatures will be similar to Saturday, with highs of between 12C-15C in the northern half of the UK, while the south will see temperatures of between 16C and 19C. No weather warnings are currently in place and no storms are expected.

In its long-range forecast, covering June 12 to June 21, the Met Office says on its website: “A general continuation initially, of sunshine and showers for many areas but remaining cool, the odd shower could be heavy across the southeast. Thereafter a build of pressure will probably bring settled conditions across the country for a day before, towards the weekend, increased uncertainty develops.

“The weekend most likely sees a greater chance of more unsettled weather developing with periods of showers or longer spells of rain over the weekend. Should this happen, wettest conditions are likely to be in the southwest, with driest weather in the northeast at first and temperatures nearer average. Into the new week signals muted between favoured regimes for the time of year, though a return to the cool showery north-westerly pattern marginally preferred at this point.”

Further ahead, from June 22 to July 6, they said: “Signals are weak regarding prevailing weather patterns during this period. Typical conditions for the UK are most probable, with a mixture of weather types. All areas can expected to see some spells of drier, sunnier weather but there will also be showers or longer spells of rain at times. Temperatures are most likely to be close to normal.”
