Tonight:

Some late sunshine with clear spells following overnight. Occasionally heavy showers will continue for many with southern parts seeing more in the way of clearer spells. Winds easing a little. Minimum Temperature 3 °C.

Outlook for Wednesday to Friday:

Rather cloudy and breezy on Wednesday with rain at times, especially in the west. Thursday and Friday then look mainly dry and bright. Freshening easterly winds on Friday.

Updated at: 0427 on Mon 2 May 2016

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Cloudy, with heavy rain and blustery winds for a time.

Today:

Cloudy skies this morning, with wet and windy weather over Scotland and Northern Ireland which will move eastwards though the day. Brighter skies will follow on after, with the odd shower, perhaps with some hail and thunder.

Tonight:

Clear skies across most of the UK, leading to a frost in rural areas. However in northern England, Northern Ireland and Scotland there will be heavy showers at times overnight.

Tuesday:

Sunny spells and patchy cloud throughout the day, though rather windy. There may be the odd shower at times, particularly in the north-west where there could be hail or thunder.

Outlook for Wednesday to Friday:

Wet and windy in the north-west on Wednesday. Then turning dry and increasingly warm for many with sunny periods.

Updated at: 0256 on Mon 2 May 2016

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Saturday 7 May 2016 to Monday 16 May 2016:

During the weekend a gradual change to more unsettled conditions is likely. On Saturday a band of heavy, thundery showers are expected to move up from the south, affecting south-western parts initially, before extending to most remaining parts of the country through the weekend. North-eastern parts will keep the fine weather for the longest, however mist, fog or low cloud may develop around the coasts at times. Changeable conditions will then continue through next week, with most places seeing showers or longer spells of rain at times. Drier, brighter weather will separate the wetter spells, and it should feel fairly warm on these days with temperatures slightly above normal. There's a continued risk of mist around eastern coasts.

Updated at: 1221 on Mon 2 May 2016

UK Outlook for Tuesday 17 May 2016 to Tuesday 31 May 2016:

Through the second half of May, the most likely scenario is for mixed conditions to persist across all areas at first. Showers or longer spells of rain will be interspersed with some drier and brighter spells. Despite this, temperatures are likely to be near or above average with some warm days likely in any sunshine. Later in the month a subtle change in the weather pattern may lead to cooler and more unsettled conditions across northern and western parts while southern and eastern areas could see longer dry periods develop and warmer temperatures at times.
