Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Thursday 23 Apr 2015 to Saturday 2 May 2015:

The start of this period will begin generally dry with good sunny spells across the British Isles. However, it is likely that the weather will gradually turn more unsettled during Friday and into the last few days of April, most probably from the south or west. Light winds are forecast in most areas at first, although breezier conditions are expected at times in the south, and a transition to generally windier weather is on the cards through the period. Temperatures are likely to be above average at first, before cooling down to near normal. This more unsettled and cooler weather pattern is then expected to continue into the early part of May, with a chance of some wet and windy conditions affecting the British Isles.

UK Outlook for Sunday 3 May 2015 to Sunday 17 May 2015:

There is some uncertainty regarding the weather forecast during this period. However, the most likely scenario is for weather conditions to be fairly typical for the time of year. As a result some wet weather is likely at times along with some drier and brighter periods, perhaps the best of these developing towards the south and east. Daytime temperatures will probably range from close to average during unsettled weather to above average when conditions are fine, and it will feel pleasantly warm in the sunnier spells as a result. As is common for the time of year, the more settled spells may be accompanied by chilly evenings with some isolated overnight frost in rural areas.

Brighton information

Still one of the most popular seaside destinations in the UK, Brighton has been a tourist hotspot for many years thanks to its climate, nightlife and fantastic shopping.

The advent of the railway really helped to boost the city's profile. Brighton has consistently attracted visitors for day trips, weekends and entire holidays, with its proximity to London has helped create a huge tourist industry that erupted during the Victorian era, with the building of several attractions including the West Pier and the Palace Pier.

Modern-day Brighton has much to echo the luxury of the Georgian and Victorian eras, with a new swathe of independent boutiques opening in key shopping areas of the city, such as The Lanes, which is packed full of quirky shops, jewellers, antiques dealers and specialist restaurants.

February in Brighton is often the coldest month with an average daytime minimum of 1.9 °C which is a degree higher than the UK average. The relatively mild winters can be attributed to Brighton's close proximity to the sea. Similarly, air frost is lower in Brighton than national figures during winter. The highest number of days when an air frost forms is typically in February. January has the joint highest number of 'rain days' with November at 12.7.

Temperatures climb steadily from an average maximum of 10 °C in March to approaching 16 °C in May. Although rare it is not unheard of for air frost to occur in May. Rainfall is quite low in Brighton all year round. During spring the most rain usually falls in March. Rainfall accumulation and days of rain are slightly higher in spring than summer though.

August is the warmest month in Brighton with an average maximum of 20.8 °C. Heat waves are usually accompanied by warm nights. The UK record for a minimum temperature overnight was set in Brighton. It was 23.9 °C on 4th August 1990. For Brighton, summer is the driest time of the year. On average around 45.1 mm of rainfall is recorded in July making it the driest month.

Mild temperatures generally last until October, where highs of 15 °C are likely. Air frost days are predominately from November onwards although there are sometimes a few in October. Rainfall accumulation is highest in autumn than any other season, and October in particular typically sees the peak concentration.
