Forecast summary

  • UK 5 days
  • UK 6-30 days

Regional forecast for North West England

Dry but turning increasingly cloudy on Wednesday.

This Evening and Tonight:

Tonight will be dry, with patchy cloud throughout. Any prolonged cloud breaks, along with light winds, will allow it to turn chilly, especially in southern parts of the region. Minimum Temperature 2 °C.

Wednesday:

Another bright start fro most, although cloud will increase, leaving it largely cloudy by afternoon. The odd patch of light rain may affect the Cumbrian Fells. Maximum Temperature 16 °C.

Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

Gradually becoming warmer, with mild and frost-free nights. Largely dry throughout, with sunny spells, hazy at times. On Saturday isolated thunderstorms may develop into the afternoon.

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Becoming increasingly warm as the week progresses.

This Evening and Tonight:

Showers will fade away this evening leaving clear spells for a time. However, cloud will once again begin to thicken in the northwest with some light rain arriving by dawn.

Wednesday:

A northwest/southeast split with cloudy conditions across northern England and rain for Scotland and Northern Ireland. Brighter for the rest of England and Wales with some warm sunshine.

Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

Warm Thursday and Friday with sunshine away from eastern coasts. Cloud will increase for the northwest Saturday with outbreaks of rain, remaining sunny and warm elsewhere, with isolated thunderstorms possible.

Updated at: 1540 on Tue 3 May 2016

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Sunday 8 May 2016 to Tuesday 17 May 2016:

Rain across north-western parts on Sunday will clear through the day. Otherwise it is expected to be generally dry and warm or locally very warm with sunny spells into next week though a few isolated thunderstorms are possible each afternoon, mainly across England and Wales. There is also the chance of more persistent rain running into southern parts at times. Some eastern coastal areas may see more in the way of cloud and mist and so will feel cooler. During the weekend of the 14th and 15th and into the following week a change in conditions looks likely with temperatures falling nearer to normal and more in the way of cloud and rain for north-western parts. Conversely southern and southeastern parts may then see the best of the drier weather.

Updated at: 1238 on Tue 3 May 2016

UK Outlook for Wednesday 18 May 2016 to Wednesday 1 Jun 2016:

At the start of this period we are likely to be seeing showers or longer spells of rain primarily affecting north-western parts but still interspersed with some drier and brighter spells. Southern and particularly southeastern parts are likely to be seeing the best of conditions though even here some rain is likely at times. Temperatures are likely to be near average overall, particularly in the northwest, but with some warm and sunny days likely.
