Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Wednesday 3 May 2017 to Friday 12 May 2017:

It will be largely fine and dry on Wednesday and Thursday, with bright or sunny spells likely. A few light showers are possible in the south, but it will be warm, or very warm in the west. Then from Friday onwards we are likely to see high pressure dominate. Easterly winds will develop, with largely dry and settled weather prevailing, and increasing amounts of sunshine. The settled weather is also likely to bring rather warm temperatures, especially during the sunnier interludes. It will feel cooler along eastern coasts however, and there will be the risk of sea fog at times here too. Some isolated showers may also be possible, again in the south or southwest.

Updated at: 1320 on Fri 28 Apr 2017

UK Outlook for Friday 12 May 2017 to Friday 26 May 2017:

Heading into the middle of May, continued dry and settled weather remains most probable. There may however be some occasional wetter interludes though, with the south most likely to see these. Temperatures are likely to remain above average for the time of year, and they will possibly become very warm at times. It will also likely continue to be drier than average.
