UK Outlook for Wednesday 23 Apr 2014 to Friday 2 May 2014:

An unsettled start to the period with showers or longer spells of rain in many locations, possibly heavy at times. Some drier, brighter spells too, the best of these in northern and northwestern parts. Windy in the north and feeling chilly in the rain, also in the wind along eastern coasts. However it will feel warm where it remains bright. The rest of next week is likely to remain changeable, especially for southern parts. Most areas will have brighter periods too with it becoming rather warm, though an easterly breeze will tend to keep northern and eastern areas cooler. Into the start of May, signs are that a mixture of sunny spells and periods of rain or showers will continue and it may also turn cooler.

UK Outlook for Saturday 3 May 2014 to Saturday 17 May 2014:

There remain no strong, discernable signals for any particular weather type to dominate through the first half of May. This leaves conditions more likely than not to be mixed with unsettled spells and showers or longer outbreaks of rain, interspersed with periods of largely fine and dry weather. By day, temperatures are likely to often be near average, though at this time of year this would still leave conditions feeling pleasant in sunshine when winds are light. Southern regions probably have the best chance of above average maxima, whilst some north-western parts may be slightly below average at times. Nights, meanwhile, may be chilly at times with a touch of frost possible.
