Why does June start off cold?

High pressure centered in the west of the United Kingdom, in the Atlantic Ocean and low pressure north of Scotland has one northwesterly airflow throughout Great Britain. This has dragged on cold arctic air throughout the country that has brought widespread below-average temperatures and a chilly feel for June.

Clear on Thursday with sunny periods and showers. The showers will be most frequent in Scotland, Northern Ireland and Northern England, where some may also occur heavy and thunderousry. Airy and stormy also in the north with strong westerly and northwesterly winds that can be locally strong in the extreme northwest.

The showers will decrease in the second half of the afternoon, leaving most places dry late sunny periods Some showers will linger in the north and west of Scotland during the evening. Weaker winds in the south could make some places feel a little warmer in the sun, with daytime highs reaching 17°C for London, 16°C for Birmingham and 14°C for Glasgow.

Dry and clear on Thursday evening for most areas, where temperatures will dip quite well into the single digits. A closed front Cloud and rain will move to western Scotland and Northern Ireland by sunrise quite heavy in the early hours.

Further south, across much of central and southern England, it will be fair cloudy with periods of rain although there will also be some periods of sunshine.

Further north it brightens, once the early rain clears, to reveal ssunshine and scattered showers which change into longer periods of rain in the northwest. It will feel slightly warmer with highs reaching 17°C for Norwich and Cardiff and 14°C for Aberdeen.
