    Regional forecast for North West England

    Early cloud and rain clearing to sunny spells and showers.

    Today:

    A cloudy and wet start with the heaviest rain across southern counties. This rain will clear to the east by midday to be replaced by brighter skies and heavy showers, these perhaps locally thundery. Feeling cool in the brisk winds. Maximum Temperature 13C.

    Tonight:

    A mixture of clear spells and scattered showers through the night, although these will tend to become more isolated and lighter towards dawn. Turning chilly in sheltered rural locations inland. Minimum Temperature 2C.

    Saturday:

    Any early showers will soon die out to leave a fine day with good spells of sunshine. Cloud will increase through the evening with rain arriving from the south overnight. Maximum Temperature 15C.

    Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

    Cool and unsettled with bands of heavy rain or showers and only brief brighter spells. This rain will be accompanied by strong winds at times, perhaps unseasonably strong.

    UK forecast for the next 5 days

    Rain and gusty winds crossing southern parts. Showers further north.

    Today:

    Outbreaks of occasionally heavy rain with gusty winds will push eastwards across southern Britain before clearing around mid-afternoon. Brighter conditions, with some showers, will follow. Northern parts will see sunny spells and heavy showers. Feeling cool in the brisk winds.

    Tonight:

    Showers will gradually become confined to the far north and northwestern coastal areas later. Clear spells will allow temperatures to fall low enough for a local rural grass frost.

    Saturday:

    Drier and brighter for many with good spells of sunshine. However, showers will affect northeastern Britain and patchy drizzly rain will arrive across southwestern parts and will turn heavier later.

    Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

    An unsettled, and perhaps at times unseasonably windy, period of weather with belts of heavy rain and showers affecting the country. It will feel chilly with below average temperatures.

    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Tuesday 2 Jun 2015 to Thursday 11 Jun 2015:

    Rather unsettled and cool conditions across most areas at first, with heavy showers or bands of more persistent rain. Strong winds are also likely, particularly in the south and the northwest. After this, further spells of rain and at times strong winds are expected to affect northern and north-western parts, whilst across the south of the UK conditions become mainly fine and dry. Later in the period, all parts of the UK are set to see some dry weather with periods of sunshine. Temperatures are also likely to recover to become rather warm in the south, with the north also rising to around normal for the time of year. Towards the end of this period, very warm weather may develop in south, albeit accompanied by the threat of heavy showers.

    UK Outlook for Friday 12 Jun 2015 to Friday 26 Jun 2015:

    High pressure looks to have become established across the north of the UK by the start of this period. This will bring fine and dry conditions to most parts with much warmer conditions than of late across the north. It is also expected to be very warm in the south, although here there is a risk of some heavy and thundery showers spreading up from continental Europe. Confidence in the forecast drops towards the end of June; however, the general trend looks set to remain much the same, meaning drier conditions in the north, some showers possible in the south and warm or very warm temperatures.
