The Met Office's long-range forecast for May 30 until June 13 reads: "There is a trend towards more settled patterns and overall drier conditions for the beginning of this period.
"This will generally lead to fine and dry weather across much of the UK, but some showers or longer spells of rain are still possible in places.
"Temperatures will probably be warm or very warm at first but may become nearer to average though mid-June, with some warm spells remaining possible."
