UK Outlook for Friday 8 May 2015 to Sunday 17 May 2015:

A few showers in the north at first on Friday, these soon dying away leaving a dry and settled day for most, however thicker cloud and some outbreaks of rain are expected in the far southwest later, this probably spreading north on Saturday, perhaps bringing some rain to northwestern parts, with more settled weather developing in the south and east. It may become unsettled again in the north the following week with occasional outbreaks of rain, and strong winds. Drier, brighter conditions are expected further south, although there is considerable uncertainty regarding the extent of these conditions at present. Temperatures will likely be average for most areas, perhaps slightly above in the southeast, although temperatures in the north should be below average at first, giving a risk of overnight frost.

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