Issued 1100 Friday 1st June 2012


A ridge of high pressure extends through the country on Saturday from a high to the northwest of Scotland. This ridge gets 'pushed' away by the front across Ireland. An area of low pressure develops across these fronts and then slips eastwards into southern ireland, with a second centre forming over northern France during Saturday night.

So it is quite a complex situation to start Saturday. There is likely to be a fair amount of cloud across England, perhaps with some drizzle here and there, especially in more central and eastern areas. Wales should be drier, although some spots of rain on eastern hills cannot be ruled out. A few showers in eastern Scotland, but the west should see the best of the sunshine.

Thicker cloud and more persistent rain looks set to move into southern Ireland, southwest Wales and southwest England through the morning. This then tracks eastwards in the afternoon to be through most of southern Ireland, Wales, southwest England, the west Midlands and northwest France by evening. Visibility deteriorates significantly in the rain.

A few showers in the afternoon and evening over the Pennines and Scotland, and some cloud on eastern coasts.

Drier in the far southeast of England, with the best sunshine and weather overall in western Scotland.

Winds mainly E-ESE 8-12kt (F3-F4) but 15-19kt (F5) in the west of Wales, southwest England and southern Ireland, becoming cyclonic here later. Mainly NE 10-14kt (F3-F4) in northern Scotland.



An elongated area of low pressure affects the south of the country throughout Sunday. A front associated with the low extends west to east bringing cloud and outbreaks of rain.

The rain will be heavy at times through southern Ireland, Wales and much of the England (apart from the far north and far south). It is likely to be a wet, cold day for many with visibility reduced and low cloud bases.

The far south of England and southern Ireland may become brighter with sunny spells, but some heavy showers forming here too. Showers are likely in Scotland where there will be a fair amount of cloud.

Winds mainly E-ENE 11-16kt (F3-F4) but cyclonic 8-10kt (F3) in the far south and NE 12-17kt (F4-F5) in northern Scotland.
