UK forecast for the next 5 days

It will be mostly cloudy and mild, with outbreaks of patchy light rain and drizzle for many, with some hill fog in places. Heavy rain and gales will arrive across the northwest later in the night.

Monday:

Rain and strong winds will spread south-eastwards through the day, although not clearing the far south-east until the evening. Cooler with blustery showers in the north and west.

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Friday 6 May 2016 to Sunday 15 May 2016:

Friday will be mainly dry, bright and relatively warm away from the far northwest where cooler, breezy and showery weather is expected. Later on Friday and into the weekend a change towards more unsettled conditions will occur as thundery showers move up from the south, affecting southwestern parts initially, before extending to remaining parts of the country through the weekend. Eastern and northeastern parts will keep the fine weather for the longest, however mist may develop around some coasts. Unsettled conditions will then continue through the new week, with most places seeing showers or longer spells of rain at times. Drier, brighter weather will separate the rain, 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: 1338 on Sun 1 May 2016

UK Outlook for Monday 16 May 2016 to Monday 30 May 2016:

Through the second half of May, the most likely scenario is for unsettled weather to persist across all areas at first. Showers or longer spells of rain will be interspersed with some drier and brighter spells. Despite the unsettled nature of the weather, 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.
