  • UK 6-30 days

Regional forecast for Dumfries, Galloway, Lothian & Borders

Mostly fine, dry and turning sunny today. Rain tonight.

Today:

A fine dry morning with sunny spells and light winds, soon lifting early frosts, leading to a pleasant afternoon for most, particularly in the east. However a few afternoon showers will develop, these largely confined to Dumfries and Galloway. Maximum Temperature 10C.

Tonight:

Any showers in the west soon dying away during the evening, but the clouds will gradually thicken from the west overnight, to bring rain towards dawn, as winds freshen. Minimum Temperature 2C.

Saturday:

Wet and windy start to the weekend with showers occasionally merging into longer, heavier periods of rain, chiefly in west. Winds increasing gale, or even severe gale, for a time. Maximum Temperature 12C.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Rain early Sunday, and perhaps later Monday. However, for the rest of the period a cold showery northwesterly will set in, with heavier western outbreaks briefly wintry at low levels.

Updated at: 0224 on Fri 27 Mar 2015

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Becoming increasingly cloudy, wet and windy from the west.

Today:

It will become increasingly cloudy from the west, with patchy rain across far southwestern Britain, along with increasing hill and coastal fog. Showers, some heavy, will affect the far northwest. Mainly dry and bright in the east.

Tonight:

Wet and windy weather will spread eastwards overnight, affecting northern Britain especially with heavy rain and gales. Low cloud, mist and fog will become more widespread across the south.

Saturday:

It will stay very windy, with severe gales possible across the north of the UK. Further heavy rain is likely but it should clear in the afternoon with showers following.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Unsettled and windy with further outbreaks of rain, especially in the west. Some brief brighter interludes are likely though. Markedly colder across northern Britain on Tuesday with snow showers.

Updated at: 0236 on Fri 27 Mar 2015

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Wednesday 1 Apr 2015 to Friday 10 Apr 2015:

A bright but windy start on Wednesday, although some blustery and perhaps wintry showers are likely for a time in the north. Cloud will then gradually build from the west, as a band of rain spreads slowly eastwards into Thursday, although some northeastern parts will remain dry. Into the Easter weekend and the following week, changeable conditions are expected, especially across the north. This will bring periods of stronger wind, rain and showers, although interspersed with some sunny spells. With high pressure remaining close to the south of the UK, and perhaps extending across the UK at times, some more prolonged drier and brighter conditions are possible, particularly in the south and east. Temperatures will be near average, but occasionally below average in the north, with localised overnight frost possible.

UK Outlook for Friday 10 Apr 2015 to Friday 24 Apr 2015:

The changeable period is expected to continue, with unsettled conditions interspersed with some spells of fine weather. With a westerly weather type most likely, especially at first, showery outbreaks or longer spells of rain are likely to affect parts of the UK throughout the period. These unsettled conditions will be most frequent across the northwest, although extending further south and east at times. There will also be some drier, brighter and settled periods, these most prolonged the south and east, and also later in the period. Temperatures are then expected to average out to be around normal for the middle of April. However they will vary from day to day, and there are likely to be some cold nights at times, especially in the north, where localised frosts remain possible.
