    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Thursday 7 May 2015 to Saturday 16 May 2015:

    The period looks likely to start unsettled for many parts of the UK, with spells of rain or showers, perhaps heavy, with the risk of hail and thunder, but also some sunny spells in between. It also looks likely that it will start off breezy and cool in northwestern areas, but normal or perhaps warm in the southeast. Over the weekend settled conditions may develop, however, there remains uncertainty about how extensive these will be, with unsettled conditions most likely persisting across the northwest. This pattern may continue the following week, with the south settled, with drier and warmer weather, and more unsettled conditions affecting the northwest. At this stage, however, there remains considerable uncertainty with conditions perhaps becoming more generally mixed later.

    UK Outlook for Sunday 17 May 2015 to Sunday 31 May 2015:

    Overall conditions will be fairly mixed during this period, with most areas experiencing spells of fine and bright weather interspersed with more changeable conditions. The most unsettled conditions are likely to be across northern and northwestern areas at first. The best of the settled weather being more likely in the in the south and southeast, at first and towards the end of the month drier conditions may become more prevalent across northern areas. Temperatures are likely to be near average for most areas, with spells of more settled weather likely to be accompanied by higher daytime temperatures, especially in the south at first. Some chilly evenings are also likely, perhaps with isolated overnight frost, most likely in rural northern areas.
