UK Outlook for Monday 28 Apr 2014 to Wednesday 7 May 2014:
Most places will remain unsettled with showers or longer spells of rain, heavy at times, although there will be some drier, brighter spells too. It will be breezy at times, particularly in the north. Feeling quite warm at first where it remains bright, but chilly in the rain and in the northeast and it will gradually turn colder from the north with showers in the north turning wintry over high ground. Similar, changeable conditions look likely to persist for the remainder of the week with a continuing downward trend in temperatures, making it feel chilly with an increased risk of frost. Into the following week, perhaps after a drier interlude, the unsettled theme is expected to continue, but with signs that temperatures could recover, perhaps rising above normal.

UK Outlook for Thursday 8 May 2014 to Thursday 22 May 2014:
There remain no strong, discernable signals for any particular weather type to dominate through this period, although western parts look likely to remain most settled. Elsewhere, conditions are more likely than not to be mixed, with showers or longer outbreaks of rain, interspersed with periods of largely fine and dry weather. By day, temperatures are likely to often be near average, which at this time of year would leave conditions feeling pleasant in sunshine when winds are light. Southern regions probably have the best chance of above average maxima. Where more settled conditions persist, nights may still be chilly with a touch of frost possible.
