Showers in the north and east. Dry and bright elsewhere.
Sunny spells for many, these most prolonged in the southwest. Feeling cold across northern Scotland with gusty winds and heavy showers, these may be thundery with a risk of hail. Further scattered showers will develop over eastern England.
Further showers across Scotland as well as near eastern and western coasts. The best chance of staying dry will be inland where some prolonged periods of clear sky are expected.
Showers, mainly across northern parts at first, becoming more widespread and heavy through the day, possibly wintry over high ground. Winds strengthening with a risk of gales near eastern coasts.
Outlook for Friday to Sunday:
Wet and windy across England and Wales on Friday, drier and brighter elsewhere. Largely dry through the weekend with brighter spells, however rain is likely for the northwest on Sunday.
UK Outlook for Monday 27 May 2013 to Wednesday 5 Jun 2013:
After a largely dry and bright weekend the Bank Holiday Monday is likely to be more unsettled with strengthening winds and outbreaks of rain becoming persistent and heavy at times in places. Through the rest of the week it is likely to remain unsettled with showers or longer spells of rain at times. Rain and showers could be heavy at times with a risk of hail and thunder. Later in the week and into the weekend more prolonged rain may affect western areas for a time, with the best of the drier and brighter weather in the east. Temperatures will start rather cool for the time of year, but should improve slightly through the period becoming near normal, perhaps warm away from windward coasts.
