Some bright or sunny intervals and a few scattered showers, some of these these briefly heavy. Still feeling cool with a brisk west or northwesterly wind, strong at times along the north coast. Maximum Temperature 13C.

Tonight:

A few showers continuing this evening before it turns drier in the early hours with some clear periods. Becoming rather chilly across Fermanagh and Down. Minimum Temperature 4C.

Saturday:

Dry with some sunshine in the morning. Clouding over in the afternoon with persistent rain developing by evening. Maximum Temperature 14C.

Updated at: 0434 on Fri 29 May 2015

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Rain and gusty winds crossing southern parts. Showers further north.

Today:

Outbreaks of occasionally heavy rain with gusty winds will push eastwards across southern Britain before clearing around mid-afternoon. Brighter conditions, with some showers, will follow. Northern parts will see sunny spells and heavy showers. Feeling cool in the brisk winds.

Tonight:

Showers will gradually become confined to the far north and northwestern coastal areas later. Clear spells will allow temperatures to fall low enough for a local rural grass frost.

Saturday:

Drier and brighter for many with good spells of sunshine. However, showers will affect northeastern Britain and patchy drizzly rain will arrive across southwestern parts and will turn heavier later.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

An unsettled, and perhaps at times unseasonably windy, period of weather with belts of heavy rain and showers affecting the country. It will feel chilly with below average temperatures.

Updated at: 0436 on Fri 29 May 2015

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Wednesday 3 Jun 2015 to Friday 12 Jun 2015:

Many places should be dry on Wednesday with some sunshine, the best of this in southern and eastern areas. More unsettled conditions, with outbreaks of rain and brisk winds, probably spreading into northern areas later on Wednesday and during Thursday, with the south probably remaining dry, and warmer than we've seen recently. Thereafter it looks as though high pressure will become established over northern parts of the UK, bringing generally dry, fine conditions for most. There is a risk later in the period that the south will see some heavy and thundery showers spreading up from the continent. Temperatures generally warm or very warm in most inland areas. Coastal areas in the east, may well be a little cooler at times with winds off the chilly North Sea.

UK Outlook for Saturday 13 Jun 2015 to Saturday 27 Jun 2015:

High pressure looks as though it will be established across the north of the UK during much of this period. This will bring fine and dry conditions to most parts with warmer conditions than of late across the north, and especially the northwest. It is also expected to be very warm in the south, although here there is a risk of some heavy and thundery showers spreading up from continental Europe. Confidence in the forecast evolution declines towards the end of June; however, the general trend looks set to remain similar, with drier conditions in the north, some showers possible in the south, and generally warm temperatures.
