Forecast summary

  • Regional
  • UK 5 days
  • UK 6-30 days

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 Thursday 28 May 2015 to Saturday 6 Jun 2015:

Unsettled weather is expected to see out May, bringing spells of rain interspersed by drier, brighter and more showery interludes. It will also be rather windy at times, particularly in the northwest, with periods of gales likely here, along with the bulk of expected rainfall. Southern and eastern areas look best placed for the driest, brightest weather, with a chance that the south could develop more prolonged dry conditions. Temperatures are likely to be below average in the northwest, but near average further south and east, still with the potential for some warm days. By early June there is no strong signal for a prevailing weather type, but, on balance, unsettled conditions are considered more likely along with slightly below normal temperatures, especially in the northwest.

UK Outlook for Sunday 7 Jun 2015 to Sunday 21 Jun 2015:

There still remains considerable uncertainty in the likely weather type through this period. At first, unsettled conditions and near or below average temperatures are likely, especially towards the northwest. Then, as we go further into June, there is a signal for higher pressure to become established to the northeast of the UK, which would lead to drier, warmer conditions for many, these perhaps most prolonged in the north.
