    Regional forecast for South West England

    Cloudy and damp, brighter later on Monday.

    Today:

    Although the day should start dry for most, cloud will quickly increase from the west, and patchy light rain and drizzle will move eastwards, reaching most parts by early afternoon. A fresh south westerly breeze will pick up as well. Maximum Temperature 14 °C.

    Tonight:

    A cloudy night, with perhaps a little patchy drizzle at times, mainly over higher ground. It will be much milder though than recent nights. Minimum Temperature 7 °C.

    Monday:

    A band of persistent, occasionally heavy rain moves eastwards over the region. This should clear through by the end of the day with drier, clearer weather following. Maximum Temperature 15 °C.

    Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

    The outlook is for a period of relatively settled weather, with variable cloud and bright or sunny spells, and it will be warming up for many by Thursday.

    UK forecast for the next 5 days

    Rain and strong winds moving south-eastwards. Dry in far southeast.

    Today:

    Rain with strengthening winds in the northwest will move slowly south-eastwards, fragmenting and becoming patchier with time. Meanwhile, much of the south and east will see very little rain, with the southeast staying dry, with some bright or sunny spells.

    Tonight:

    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 in the northwest, with gales.

    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 Tuesday to Thursday:

    Sunshine and showers on Tuesday, some showers heavy, especially in the north. Dry, brighter and warmer for most thereafter, although thicker cloud and rain will move into the northwest.

    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Thursday 5 May 2016 to Saturday 14 May 2016:

    A north-south split is expected on Thursday and Friday, with brisk winds, showers or longer spells of rain in the north and drier, sunnier and much warmer conditions in the south. Through the weekend and next week, occasional spells of rain and drier, brighter interludes are expected for the west and southwest. Eastern and northeastern parts are likely to see plenty of dry and bright weather, but with a risk of thundery showers in southern parts at times. Overall, temperatures are expected to be near or a little above average, but the north may see temperatures a little below average at first. In the south temperatures may be well above average at times, giving a much warmer feel than of late.

    UK Outlook for Sunday 15 May 2016 to Sunday 29 May 2016:

    Through the second half of May, the most likely scenario is for unsettled weather across western parts, with showers or longer spells of rain but also some bright or sunny spells too. The best of the drier and brighter weather should be across the east, but there remains a risk of rain or perhaps thundery showers at times. Temperatures are likely to be close to or a little above average, particularly at first, so it will feel warm on the sunnier days, especially in the southeast.
