    Dry and turning rather cloudy. Southeast breezes developing.

    Saturday:

    Mainly dry with best of the brighter sells around western parts of Orkney, but elsewhere 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.

    UK forecast for the next 5 days

    Clear spells and a patchy frost tonight.

    This Evening and Tonight:

    There will be some clear spells tonight, allowing for a patchy rural grass frost and isolated fog patches. A few showers are also likely, mainly in northern and western areas.

    Saturday:

    Mostly dry and bright, with the best of the sunshine in the south. The odd shower is possible in the west and it will also turn breezy in the west.

    Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

    Rain will slowly move in from the southwest Sunday, but for many it'll stay dry until later. The rain will clear to a few showers Monday, with sunny spells Tuesday.

    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Wednesday 3 May 2017 to Friday 12 May 2017:

    It will be largely fine and dry on Wednesday and Thursday, with bright or sunny spells likely. A few light showers are possible in the south, but it will be warm, or very warm in the west. Then from Friday 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 rather warm temperatures, especially during the sunnier interludes. It will feel cooler along eastern coasts however, and there will be the risk of sea fog at times here too. Some isolated showers may also be possible, again in the south or southwest.

    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 likely continue to be drier than average.
