    UK Outlook for Saturday 8 Apr 2017 to Saturday 22 Apr 2017:

    Much of this period will see a good deal of settled and dry weather across the UK. However, we are likely to see unsettled conditions with cloud, rain and strong winds affecting the far north and west of the UK at times, particularly at the start of the period. However, such unsettled spells of weather are likely to be short-lived. Temperatures are likely to be warmer than average, but with rather chilly nights at times, with frost and fog in places. Any colder spells are likely to be short-lived, although there are slight indications these may be more prevalent later in the month.
