Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Monday 21 Apr 2014 to Wednesday 30 Apr 2014:

Generally unsettled on Monday with showers or longer spells of rain, heavy at times. Best conditions then perhaps most likely in the far northwest, though even here some rain is possible. Quite windy and feeling chilly in the rain. Further showers on Tuesday, though some areas escaping with a drier day than Monday. Conditions for the rest of next week are then likely to remain a little on the unsettled side with some showers or rain at times, but most areas will have brighter periods too. Probably turning a little warmer from mid-week, though sea breezes may keep some northern and eastern areas cooler. Looking ahead to the week after next, signs are that conditions will still be a little on the unsettled side and it may also turn cooler.

UK Outlook for Thursday 1 May 2014 to Thursday 15 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.
