  • UK 6-30 days

Regional forecast for South West England

It will be a cloudy day with spells of rain or drizzle but the rain should ease by this evening. Low cloud will bring extensive hill fog and it will feel cold in the east. Maximum Temperature 12C.

Tonight:

It will stay cloudy overnight with hill fog, and outbreaks of rain will become more frequent during the early hours. However, it will be a mild night. Minimum Temperature 7C.

Friday:

After a fairly wet start it should become drier during the morning and even though it will stay rather cloudy there could be the odd sunny spell in the afternoon. Maximum Temperature 13C.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

The rest of the Easter weekend should be mainly dry with quite a lot of cloud around. However, with light winds it should feel a little milder than of late.

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Fine across eastern Britain but cloudy and damp further west.

Today:

Fine across central and eastern Britain but cloud and rain across the west and southwest will edge slowly eastwards. There will be extensive hill fog across southwestern parts of England and Wales, and it will feel cold under the cloud.

Tonight:

Dry at first across eastern Britain with ground frost possible. Rain will slowly move east, with some hill snow across northern England and Scotland, and heavy rain across western parts.

Friday:

Mainly cloudy at first with occasional rain, however, it should become drier through the day with cloud breaking to allow some sunny intervals across western parts of the UK.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

The rest of the Easter weekend should be mainly dry with light winds. It is likely to be rather cloudy but some sunny intervals are possible. It should feel milder.

Updated at: 0434 on Thu 02 Apr 2015

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Monday 6 Apr 2015 to Wednesday 15 Apr 2015:

It should remain largely dry with some sunny spells and light winds on Easter Monday, particularly over southern and southwestern parts, however skies will likely remain fairly cloudy in general. Parts of the northwest may be affected by some light rain and drizzle too. High pressure is then likely to remain dominant through to the middle of the month with a good deal of dry weather and with some sunny spells likely, and with temperatures probably around average, perhaps just above during the daytime. However, northern and western parts could see some rain at times with some windier periods too, although any rain should weaken as it edges southeast into other parts of the country.

UK Outlook for Thursday 16 Apr 2015 to Thursday 30 Apr 2015:

From the middle of April it is probable that the high pressure will decline away, allowing a more westerly flow with conditions more typical for the time of year. As such some spells of fine, dry weather are likely, the best of these probably over southern parts. Occasional bouts of more unsettled and windier weather should also be expected with colder, and occasionally showery conditions, more especially across northwestern parts. Temperatures are likely to be around normal for the time of year with marked differences from day to day, and with localised frost still possible.
