UK Outlook for Saturday 9 May 2015 to Monday 18 May 2015:

It will start dry and bright for many on Saturday, but outbreaks of rain will likely develop across many parts and then remain mostly unsettled through the weekend. It is probable that conditions will remain unsettled in the northwest through the following week with occasional outbreaks of rain and showers, and some strong winds at times. Drier, brighter conditions are more likely in the southeast. This pattern may continue over the weekend, but there is also a signal that more settled conditions will build across all parts of the UK for a time. Temperatures will start off chilly on Saturday, but they should generally rise closer to average, and perhaps become warm at times in the southeast.

UK Outlook for Tuesday 19 May 2015 to Tuesday 2 Jun 2015:

Overall conditions will be fairly mixed during this period, with many areas experiencing spells of fine and bright weather at times, but interspersed with more changeable conditions. The most unsettled conditions are likely to be across northern and northwestern areas at first. The best of the settled weather being more likely in the south and southeast. Towards the end of the month drier conditions may become more prevalent across northern areas as well. Temperatures are likely to be near or just above average for most areas, with spells of more settled weather likely to be accompanied by higher daytime temperatures, especially in the south and southeast. Some chilly evenings are also likely, perhaps with isolated overnight frost, most likely in rural northern areas.
