Unsettled and windy in the north; drier elsewhere.

This Evening and Tonight:

Showers, heavy with hail and thunder, wintry over high ground, continuing across Scotland. Becoming very windy across the far north, with a spell of severe gales overnight. Drier elsewhere, though rain developing for parts of Northern Ireland and northern England.


Winds easing across the far north, though with spells of rain continuing across other northern areas. Mainly dry in the south, where mild. Otherwise, temperatures near normal.

Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

Largely settled and dry with some sunny spells away from western and northern Scotland; especially wet here on Thursday, and frequent blustery showers on Saturday. Breezy for most, and mild.


UK long range weather forecast

Sunday is likely to be a widely fine day, with long sunny spells across all areas, with residual showers in the far north clearing through the morning, and with cloud and light rain in the south also clearing. Cloudier conditions may begin to develop in the far west later. Strong winds in the north at first but easing through the day. Further into the period the conditions are expected to remain settled for many at first, with the most of any wet weather likely in the far northwest. Temperatures most likely around average for most. Later, the most likely scenario is for wetter, windier and milder weather to move in from the west, however there is a small chance of easterly winds developing bringing colder weather and some snow showers.


This period is likely to be characterised by changeable weather, with unsettled and windy conditions, especially in the northwest. The best of the settled conditions in the east and southeast. Temperatures likely average or slightly milder than average, with a chance of short colder spells.
