Here’s our breakdown of the latest weather updates from the Met Office.

When is the Platinum Jubilee?

People will be given an extra two days off work this year to celebrate the Queen’s Jubilee.

The bank holiday dates are Thursday 2 June and Friday 3 June, giving some a four day long weekend.

What is the Met Office long-range forecast for the UK?

Friday 20 May - Sunday 29 May

Conditions are expected to be settled and dry for most parts of the UK with high pressure across the board and temperatures set to be just above average.

The high pressure is likely to slip away to the northeast during the first weekend of this period. This will allow for a southerly flow to develop across the UK and potentially draw in some warm air from the continent.

Temperatures will be widely above average and a hot spell is possible across the southern areas of the UK particularly.

Most areas will remain largely dry and fine, however, this will increase the chance of showers and thunderstorms. Specifically for western areas of the UK in this period.

Monday 30 May - Monday 13 June

This period’s conditions look to be more unsettled and there is a potential for spells of rain or showers for most areas. Drier spells are also likely, particularly for the south.

Temperatures will continue to stay above average. Southern areas will see the warmest temperatures throughout this period.

In northern areas temperatures are likely to return to normal for this time of year.
