UK forecast for the next 5 days

Turning very windy with rain spreading east later.

Today:

A bright start for many, although wintry showers will continue across the far north with sunny spells too. Cloud, rain and strong winds will then spread eastwards through the afternoon, with gales developing around coasts, locally severe in the west.

Very windy overnight, especially England and Wales, with gales, locally severe. Rain clearing eastwards by the midnight, with clear spells and blustery showers following. These turning wintry across northern hills.

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Friday 3 Apr 2015 to Sunday 12 Apr 2015:

Many areas away from the far northeast of the UK will probably be dull and cloudy with outbreaks of rain on Good Friday. However, it should be mostly dry during the weekend with variable and often large amounts of cloud. Winds should also be light or moderate and daytime temperatures near or slightly below average. On Easter Monday and Tuesday, thicker cloud, outbreaks of rain and stronger winds may affect western and northwestern parts of Britain but most other areas should be dry with sunny spells. Temperatures show signs of becoming a little above average. Thereafter, northwestern areas are more likely to have the most changeable conditions with spells of rain interspersed with colder, showery weather. Meanwhile, the best of the drier and brighter conditions should be to the southeast.

UK Outlook for Monday 13 Apr 2015 to Monday 27 Apr 2015:

During the second half of April conditions are considered most likely to be broadly typical for the time of year. As such some spells of fine, dry weather are likely, the best of these probably over southern regions, but occasional bouts of more unsettled weather with rain or showers should also be expected, perhaps more especially in the north. During fine spells maximum temperatures are likely to be near or a little above average, whilst during showery spells daytime temperatures may well be below average, especially in the north. Some cold nights, with localised frost, are also likely at times.
