UK 5 day weather forecast


Rather cool, showery weather continuing for most, although occasional sunshine.

This Evening and Tonight:

Evening showers, some heavy and perhaps thundery across southern and central UK, tending to fade, though continuing for some. Otherwise turning drier, with a few patches of mist or low cloud, and chilly where clearest, for example across Northern Ireland.


Another showery day, with some heavy, thundery showers by afternoon, focused in eastern, southern and central areas, probably fewer in the west by then. A little warmer for some parts.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

Rather cool with sunny spells, heavy showers and perhaps some thunderstorms. Fewer showers and more sunshine on Wednesday. Potentially turning wet and windy on Thursday, especially in the west.


UK long range weather forecast

Unsettled conditions continuing, with scattered showers again developing across most areas. These showers are likely to be heavy at times, with thunderstorms possible in places. On Friday and possibly into the weekend, more prolonged spells of rain are likely at times, especially in the west. Into next week, there is a chance of more settled conditions to gradually become established. Whilst further rain and showers are possible, overall drier and brighter conditions should become more dominant. Staying rather cool for the time of year, although night time frost will be limited, mainly across rural, northern areas. During next week, there are some indications that conditions may start to turn warmer, with temperatures closer to normal for the time of year.


Confidence is low for this period, which is usual during spring and early summer. It is likely for conditions to remain changeable with showers at first, but probably also more settled at times with a higher likelihood of drier conditions for many places compared to recent weeks. Temperatures probably recovering to nearer average but with more settled conditions bringing some warmer days, and some cooler nights remain possible.
