After several weeks of uncertain weather, Manchester residents are finally in for a treat as the latest forecast predicts highs of 23C and "summer-like" sunshine. WX Charts, which utilises data from Met Desk, predicts that cities such as Manchester and Birmingham will experience these temperatures starting from June 5.

The Met Office meanwhile, offers a positive weather outlook for June 1 to June 10, stating: "During the outlook period, the weather will turn more settled as high pressure builds in from the west. A few showers could still develop in places like the southeast during Saturday and Sunday afternoons, but for most it will be a dry weekend with periods of sunshine."

"It will feel warm with light winds, but it will feel cooler near the coast where onshore sea breezes develop. This fair weather is likely to continue for a few days into the following week, but thereafter the outlook becomes more uncertain. The south of the UK will probably be drier, although not ruling out scattered showers completely."

"Cooler and cloudier further northwest, where rain is more likely. Temperatures will probably be around normal or a little above average."

In addition, the BBC predicts there are "signs of warmth" between June 2 and June 9 as we move towards the sixth month of the year, reports Birmingham Live.

The broadcaster has announced: "In the second week of June, the areas of low pressure could remain near Iceland and extend towards the UK, with a possibly renewed build-up of high pressure over Scandinavia or north-east Europe signalling a continuation of the changeable but generally warmer conditions and a more south-westerly flow developing."

"It could become even warmer, especially in eastern and southern areas, as the Azores high or Scandinavian high pressure may extend to parts of the UK at times. However, western and northern areas could remain wetter and slightly windier, with the influence of Atlantic low pressure, which could mean slightly drier and calmer conditions in southern and eastern areas at times."

"However, the forecast is subject to increasing uncertainty. The bottom line is that the trend towards a more changeable weather regime will continue, with a higher probability of temperatures remaining above average."
