Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Monday 3 Apr 2017 to Wednesday 12 Apr 2017:

Monday is likely to be cloudy with bands of rain and strong winds in the north-west. These may well spread into central areas later in the day. However, the south-eastern half of the UK will probably stay dry all day with sunny spells. Temperatures will stay above normal everywhere and it is likely to be warm in the east. By midweek, high pressure will become more dominant and the dry, bright weather will spread to the whole country for a few days. Winds will be light nearly everywhere. The best of the sunshine and the warmest temperatures will be in the south, with more cloud in the north. More changeable weather will probably become established by the start of the following week, especially in the north-west.

UK Outlook for Thursday 13 Apr 2017 to Thursday 27 Apr 2017:

The middle of April may see more unsettled conditions for a while with short periods of cloud, rain and strong winds particularly affecting the north and west of the UK. Dry and calm conditions are more likely to dominate, especially in the south and later in the month. Temperatures are expected to be warmer than average, but with rather chilly nights at times, leading to frost in a few places. Any colder spells are likely to be short-lived too, although there are some hints that these may become more prevalent later in the month.
