Friday Evening and Night:

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:
Saturday, very warm with sunny periods - a little breezy - there may be some cloud build up, and showers could arrive - and even a thunderstorm - you know what King George II said! (if not see below!). Sunday, turning a little cooler, but still quite warm - remaining mainly dry - just a chance of a shower. Monday, fairly mild, mainly dry, but more in the way of cloud.-
At the end of a short heatwave, any colder front, advancing from the west, undercuts the hot and humid air that has been in occupation, for the previous two or three days. Then, if there is sufficient moisture in the upper atmosphere, cumulonimbus clouds will "boil" upwards to the base of the stratosphere, and thunderstorms will soon follow.    This sequence of events is so ''normal'' in this part of the world, that it has been enshrined in royal clichs, since the 1730s, when George II is supposed to have characterised the British summer as "three fine days and a thunderstorm"!!

-UK Outlook for Monday 29 May 2017 to Wednesday 7 Jun 2017:
A very uncertain period, but the more likely scenario is for rather mixed conditions on Bank Holiday Monday and Tuesday, with showery outbreaks of rain, perhaps heavy and thundery, drifting in from the south, but also some brighter spells. Temperatures are likely to be down in comparison to the weekend, although it could stay rather warm and humid, especially in the southeast. Meanwhile, it will probably be cooler and fresher in the north and west, where we may see windier conditions. From Wednesday onwards, we will generally see a mixture of sunshine and showers, particularly across the northwest. However, we may hold on to drier, brighter and perhaps warmer conditions in the far southeast, although some thundery showers are possible.
UK Outlook for Thursday 8 Jun 2017 to Thursday 22 Jun 2017:
Confidence is currently low through this period, though we are more likely to see changeable conditions continue through the early part of June. More settled weather may begin to dominate for a time towards the middle of June, bringing drier and brighter weather for many. Temperatures are likely to be close to normal at first, but may become generally warm, perhaps locally very warm for a time during mid June. By the latter part of June, there is a possibility of more unsettled conditions developing, with spells of rain at times, and temperatures returning closer to average.-
