  • UK 5 days
  • UK 6-30 days

Regional forecast for Central Tayside & Fife

Sunshine. Showers, which will dwindle later.

Today:

A day of sunshine and showers. Outbreaks quite isolated at first, but increasing my late afternoon with some locally heavy with thunder into the afternoon. Showers dwindling from the south by early evening. Maximum Temperature 13 °C.

Tonight:

Last of showers dying away during evening. Cloud thickening from the west overnight to bring some patchy light rain towards dawn, mainly in western parts of Central and Tayside. Minimum Temperature 7 °C.

Wednesday:

Mainly cloudy with rain, patchy towards Fife, Dundee and Angus where the best of limited brighter spells will appear. However, perhaps some heavier outbreaks developing in the far west. Maximum Temperature 14 °C.

Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

Thursday brings showers and some brighter spells. Mostly dry and sunny Friday. Saturday turns misty across east coast, perhaps rain to far west, leaving central parts fine, dry, perhaps warm.

UK forecast for the next 5 days

A bright day today with sunshine and showers.

Today:

After a chilly start Tuesday will be a bright day for most with sunny spells. Showers, initially confined to the northwest, will spread east but becoming fewer and lighter through the day. Feeling warm with temperatures in the upper teens.

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:

Northwest/southeast split on Wednesday with cloudy, perhaps wintry conditions for Scotland, Northern Ireland and northern England with some light rain. Brighter for the rest of England and Wales with 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 with isolated thunderstorms elsewhere.

Updated at: 0230 on Tue 3 May 2016

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Saturday 7 May 2016 to Monday 16 May 2016:

During the weekend a gradual change to more unsettled conditions is likely. On Saturday a band of heavy, thundery showers are expected to move up from the south, affecting south-western parts initially, before extending to most remaining parts of the country through the weekend. North-eastern parts will keep the fine weather for the longest, however mist, fog or low cloud may develop around the coasts at times. Changeable conditions will then continue through next week, with most places seeing showers or longer spells of rain at times. Drier, brighter weather will separate the wetter spells, and it should feel fairly warm on these days with temperatures slightly above normal. There's a continued risk of mist around eastern coasts.

Updated at: 1221 on Mon 2 May 2016

UK Outlook for Tuesday 17 May 2016 to Tuesday 31 May 2016:

Through the second half of May, the most likely scenario is for mixed conditions to persist across all areas at first. Showers or longer spells of rain will be interspersed with some drier and brighter spells. Despite this, temperatures are likely to be near or above average with some warm days likely in any sunshine. Later in the month a subtle change in the weather pattern may lead to cooler and more unsettled conditions across northern and western parts while southern and eastern areas could see longer dry periods develop and warmer temperatures at times.
