UK forecast for the next 5 days

Windy, chilly with sunny spells and wintry showers for many.

Today:

Remaining unsettled with outbreaks of showery rain, sleet and hill snow over some northern and eastern areas. Elsewhere will be bright with sunny spells and scattered showers, locally heavy with a hail and thunder risk. Remaining windy and feeling chilly.

Tonight:

Showers fading for most, though likely persisting in the north and west. Clear spells for many with winds easing to allow a cold night with a widespread frost.

Saturday:

A frosty start followed by a bright day with sunny spells. Some showers breaking out, especially in the east, heavy at times with hail and thunder. Warmer than of late.

Rain and stronger winds will spread in from the northwest on Sunday, then clearing to blustery showers on Monday and Tuesday, wintry over northern hills, but steadily becoming less cold.

Updated at: 0202 on Fri 29 Apr 2016

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Tuesday 3 May 2016 to Thursday 12 May 2016:

A mix of sunshine and blustery showers is expected on Tuesday, this clearing to persistent rain across northern and western parts on Wednesday and drier, brighter conditions further south. These unsettled conditions are likely to continue through the week and into the weekend with showers or longer spells of rain across northern and northwestern parts though some brief drier, brighter spells here. Southern and eastern parts still perhaps seeing more in the way of sunnier, warmer weather though still a risk of some rain at times. Into the following week, similar conditions continuing though decent dry periods likely too. Temperatures close to average for most, perhaps a little below at times still in the north and northwest and warmest in the south and southeast so feeling warmer than of late.

Updated at: 1225 on Thu 28 Apr 2016

UK Outlook for Friday 13 May 2016 to Friday 27 May 2016:

Through the second half of May, the most likely scenario is for more unsettled weather across western and northwestern parts with showers or longer spells of rain though some brighter spells too. Southern and southeastern parts should see the best of the drier, brighter conditions, mainly through the start of the period, though perhaps a risk of rain later on. Temperatures are likely to stay near average, but it will feel warm on the sunnier days, especially in the south.
