UK weather: Met Office issues hard blow in early summer Bath City News

If anyone was hoping for warm weather in early summer, the Met Office has some disappointing news.

Heavy rains, wind, and cool temperatures haven’t really made this May an unforgettable memory and many people are hoping the weather will improve as lockdown restrictions lift on Monday and we move into June.

But in the UK’s long-term forecast, the Met Office is forecasting more stormy conditions, overnight frosts and below-average temperatures for the next two weeks.

As for early June, forecasters say there will be more dry weather and sunshine, which should see a pick-up in temperature. However, he adds: “although at this point there is no strong signal for very hot weather.”

The recent wet weather has resulted in flood warnings and alerts in the southwest, and there will likely be more scattered showers today (Friday, May 14) with temperatures up to 14 ° C.

More abundant rains are expected this evening in our region, with strong winds as well.

Saturday could see heavier showers, some of which could be thundery, with unstable weather continuing on Sunday (which could see the heaviest showers) and Monday where there could be thunderstorms.

Below you can see the latest long-term forecast from the Met Office.

From Tuesday May 18 to Thursday May 27

Continuing unstable and rather cool with showers developing most days. Showers each day are likely to be locally strong with a risk of thunder, possibly in the southern areas most prone to them on Monday.

It will probably also be windy at times, especially around the western coastal areas. Temperatures seem to stay rather below average across the country, although under sunshine and lighter winds it will be quite pleasant.

Where winds drop light and skies clear, it is still possible that we may see freezing overnight in sheltered and prone areas. Maybe start to become a little more sedentary towards the end of the period, but that is very uncertain at this point.

Thursday May 27 to Thursday June 10

Confidence is low for this outlook, as is typical of late spring and early summer. However, perhaps a trend for rather more stable conditions as we enter early June with more dry weather and sunshine.

With this, it is likely that we will also see a recovery in temperature, although at this point there is no strong signal for very hot weather.
