Regional Forecast for Orkney & Shetland

Headline:

Dry with some good spells of sunshine

Today:

A bright and dry day with some good spells of sunshine, the best of the sunshine across Shetland while western Orkney will see rather more in the way of cloud. Mainly light northeasterly winds becoming more southeasterly. Maximum temperature 8 °C.

Tonight:

Some late sunshine then a dry night with clear spells. However cloud will tend to increase through the early hours as the southeasterly breeze freshens. Minimum temperature 3 °C.

Saturday:

Still plenty of dry and bright weather around, especially for western parts, but it will be cloudier than Friday with perhaps the odd spot of rain. Occasionally strong southeasterly winds. Maximum temperature 11 °C.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Rather cool and cloudy through into next week with a little rain at times, best of any brighter spells expected across western parts. Occasionally strong southeasterly winds easing on Tuesday.

Updated: 03:32 on Fri 28 Apr 2017 BST

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Mostly dry today and tomorrow, some rain by Sunday.

Today:

A largely dry day with light winds and some bright or sunny spells. There will be a few light showers at times, these are most likely in the west and along North Sea coasts where it will feel chilly.

Tonight:

It will remain mainly dry overnight but there is the risk of the odd shower, mainly in the north and west. A slightly milder night with little frost.

Saturday:

Another largely dry day with some bright or sunny spells though with a continuing risk of some showers, mainly in the north. Generally milder but breezy across the far west.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Breezy on Sunday with rain in the southwest travelling northeastwards to affect the northeast by Monday. This will clear away on Monday though some rain may arrive later on Tuesday.

Updated: 03:05 on Fri 28 Apr 2017 BST

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Tuesday 2 May 2017 to Thursday 11 May 2017:

Any showers on Tuesday should become lighter for many, but some may linger in the south east. Elsewhere it will be largely dry and bright, with some sunshine. Wednesday is likely to be dry with some sunshine for many, and temperatures next week are expected to be around average for early May, meaning we will lose the risk of overnight frosts. Then from Thursday onwards we are likely to see high pressure dominate. Easterly winds will develop, with largely dry and settled weather prevailing, and increasing amounts of sunshine. The settled weather is also likely to bring temperatures slightly above average, especially during the sunnier interludes, but it will feel cooler along eastern coasts, and there will be the risk of sea fog at times here too.

UK Outlook for Friday 12 May 2017 to Friday 26 May 2017:

Heading into the middle of May, continued dry and settled weather remains most probable. There may however be some occasional wetter interludes though, with the south most likely to see these. Temperatures are likely to remain above average for the time of year, and they will possibly become very warm at times. It will also continue to be drier than average.
