Regional forecast for North West England

Rain clearing southeastwards, with brighter but cooler conditions following.

Today:

A wet start, as a band of rain moves southeastwards across the region, with the odd heavier burst. Cooler, brighter conditions following, with some spells of sunshine developing in the north by late morning, and elsewhere during the afternoon. Maximum Temperature 15C.

Tonight:

Largely dry but rather cloudy, with some occasional clear spells. The cloud may also be thick enough at times to produce the odd spot of rain, especially across the Pennines. Minimum Temperature 6C.

Monday:

Remaining largely dry throughout Bank Holiday Monday, but with often large amounts of cloud. Some bright or sunny spells should develop though, especially to the southeast of high ground. Maximum Temperature 15C.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

Staying largely dry on Tuesday and Wednesday with a mix of cloud and some sunny spells. Outbreaks of rain and strong northwesterly winds then gradually moving east during Thursday.

Updated at: 0233 on Sun 24 May 2015

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Outbreaks of rain moving southeastwards, with cooler conditions following behind.

Today:

Early rain across northern England and Wales, will gradually move southeastwards during the day, turning increasingly patchy as it does so, but still with the odd heavier burst. Cooler, brighter conditions following, with some showers across northern and western Scotland.

Tonight:

Showers continuing across northern and western Scotland overnight, with the rain in southeast England slowly clearing. Elsewhere, largely dry with a mix of cloud and clear spells.

Monday:

Largely dry with some brightness or sunshine developing, especially in the east. However, thicker cloud and patchy rain may affect parts of the extreme west at times throughout the day.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

Many areas dry during Tuesday and Wednesday, with the best of the brightness in the east. Rain and strong winds reaching the northwest later Wednesday, then elsewhere during Thursday.

Updated at: 0232 on Sun 24 May 2015

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Friday 29 May 2015 to Sunday 7 Jun 2015:

May is expected to end unsettled, with spells of rain interspersed by drier, brighter and more showery interludes. It may be rather windy, particularly in the northwest, with a risk of gales, and the bulk of the rainfall. Southern and eastern areas look best placed for the driest, brightest weather. Temperatures are likely to be below average in the northwest, but near average further south and east. Into June the signal for prevailing weather becomes fairly weak, but, on balance, unsettled conditions are considered more likely in the northwest at first, with slightly below average temperatures, and settled, warmer, conditions in the southeast. Towards the weekend these warmer more settled conditions are likely to spread to most of the country with a risk of showers in the south.

UK Outlook for Monday 8 Jun 2015 to Monday 22 Jun 2015:

There still remains considerable uncertainty in the likely weather type through this period. There is, however, a signal for higher pressure to become established to the north of the UK. This would lead to drier, warmer conditions for many, these perhaps most prolonged in the north, but it may also allow some more unsettled, perhaps thundery, weather to move up from continental Europe and affect the south of the country.
