UK Outlook for Saturday 1 Apr 2017 to Monday 10 Apr 2017:

This weekend will start bright and breezy with showers, particularly on Saturday, these turning heavy and thundery in places. By Sunday it should turn drier for all, with some good spells of sunshine.

By early next week, high pressure will begin to build in from the southwest bringing drier, brighter weather with some sunny spells, particularly in the southeast. Meanwhile the northwest is likely to remain unsettled with spells of rain or showers and strong winds at times, but there will be some drier interludes too. Feeling warm in any spring sunshine, particularly in the south and east.

UK Outlook for Tuesday 11 Apr 2017 to Tuesday 25 Apr 2017:

Much of this period will see a good deal of settled and dry weather across the UK. We are however likely to see unsettled conditions with cloud, rain and strong winds particularly affecting the far north and west of the UK at times. Such unsettled spells of weather are expected to be short-lived though. Temperatures are likely to be warmer than average, but with rather chilly nights at times, leading to frost and fog in places. Any colder spells are likely to be short-lived too, although there some hints that these may become more prevalent later in the month.
