Meteorologist Aidan McGivern said: “On the weekend, there will be lots of fine weather.”

The Met Office long-range forecast from Tuesday of next week to June 1 states that the UK will be dominated by high pressure, resulting in mostly settled conditions across the whole country. However, there might be occasional outbreaks of rain and drizzle in some regions.

While winds will generally be light across most areas, they could be stronger at times in the far northwest and southeast.

Moving on, high pressure is expected to persist over much of the UK, including the southwest and northeast regions. This will bring back more settled weather, with a good amount of fine and dry conditions anticipated for the majority of areas.
