Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Tuesday 29 Apr 2014 to Thursday 8 May 2014:

A fairly cloudy picture across much of the UK at first with outbreaks of rain for many, except perhaps the far southeast. Clearer, colder conditions will spread to northern parts late Tuesday and into Wednesday, with some heavy showers giving a risk of snow over high ground in the far north. Later in the week colder conditions and showers will likely spread south to most. It will feel warm in drier, sunny spells, but temperatures will generally be trending downwards to just below average for late April. Through the Bank Holiday weekend there is a signal for more settled conditions to develop, with day time temperatures recovering to average. After Bank Holiday Monday, confidence is currently low but the most likely scenario is a return to more unsettled weather.

UK Outlook for Friday 9 May 2014 to Friday 23 May 2014:

There remains no strong, discernable signals for any particular weather type to dominate through this period. Conditions are most probable to be fairly typical for the time of year, with periods of largely fine and dry weather, interspersed with more unsettled spells with some rain and showers. By day temperatures are most likely to be near average, which at this time of year would leave conditions feeling pleasant in sunshine when winds are light. Where more settled conditions persist, nights may still be chilly with a touch of frost possible early in the month.
