With above average rainfall in the south-east in May after a prolonged period of below average rainfall, the outlook is for normal to above normal river flows across the UK for June. However, this period is expected to be short-lived, and river flows over June-July-August as a whole are likely to return to being normal to below normal.  Groundwater levels in the south-east of England are likely to be below normal to notably low over the next one to three months, whilst levels in southern Scotland are likely to be above normal or higher over this period.
