Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Sunday 10 May 2015 to Tuesday 19 May 2015:

It will start dry and bright for many on Sunday, but cloud and outbreaks of rain are likely to spread across north-western parts through the day, accompanied by quite strong winds. Brighter conditions should continue further south and east, perhaps feeling quite warm here, with some sunny spells developing. It is then likely to become fairly unsettled through the following week, particularly in the north-west, with occasional spells of rain or showers, and some strong winds at times. Drier, brighter conditions are more likely towards the south-east, where it will feel somewhat warmer too. This pattern looks likely to continue through the weekend, but there is also a signal that more settled conditions will build across all parts of the UK.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 20 May 2015 to Wednesday 3 Jun 2015:

Overall, fairly mixed conditions are expected through the period, with many areas experiencing spells of fine and bright weather, interspersed with more changeable conditions. The most unsettled conditions are likely to be across northern and north-western areas at first, whilst the best of the settled weather is more likely towards the south and south-east. However, there is a signal for some drier conditions to develop across northern parts towards the end of May as well. Temperatures are likely to be near or just above average for most areas at first, with spells of more settled weather likely to be accompanied by higher daytime temperatures, particularly in the south or south-east. Some chilly nights are also likely, perhaps with isolated overnight frost, most likely in rural northern parts.
