Regional Forecast for Wales

Headline:

Becoming dry tonight with bright skies tomorrow.

This Evening and Tonight:

Any evening showers will soon ease to leave a dry night tonight. Some clear spells will develop and the winds will be light, meaning a rural grass frost is possible. Minimum temperature 3 °C.

Saturday:

It will be a fine and dry start to Saturday. There will be some bright or sunny spells, however it will become windy later. Maximum temperature 14 °C.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Sunday will be wet and windy, with the rain clearing to showers later. Mostly dry Monday, with some rain possible by the evening, and Tuesday will be sunny and warmer.

Updated: 14:20 on Fri 28 Apr 2017 BST

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Clear spells and a patchy frost tonight.

This Evening and Tonight:

There will be some clear spells tonight, allowing for a patchy rural grass frost and isolated fog patches. A few showers are also likely, mainly in northern and western areas.

Saturday:

Mostly dry and bright, with the best of the sunshine in the south. The odd shower is possible in the west and it will also turn breezy in the west.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Rain will slowly move in from the southwest Sunday, but for many it'll stay dry until later. The rain will clear to a few showers Monday, with sunny spells Tuesday.

Updated: 14:10 on Fri 28 Apr 2017 BST

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Wednesday 3 May 2017 to Friday 12 May 2017:

It will be largely fine and dry on Wednesday and Thursday, with bright or sunny spells likely. A few light showers are possible in the south, but it will be warm, or very warm in the west. Then from Friday onwards we are likely to see high pressure dominate. Easterly winds will develop, with largely dry and settled weather prevailing, and increasing amounts of sunshine. The settled weather is also likely to bring rather warm temperatures, especially during the sunnier interludes. It will feel cooler along eastern coasts however, and there will be the risk of sea fog at times here too. Some isolated showers may also be possible, again in the south or southwest.

UK Outlook for Friday 12 May 2017 to Friday 26 May 2017:

Heading into the middle of May, continued dry and settled weather remains most probable. There may however be some occasional wetter interludes though, with the south most likely to see these. Temperatures are likely to remain above average for the time of year, and they will possibly become very warm at times. It will also likely continue to be drier than average.
