UK 5 day weather forecast


Rain or showers for many areas over the weekend.

This Evening and Tonight:

Heavy showers and some thunderstorms over western areas dying out, ahead of a band of rain moving east across much of England and Wales overnight. Some clear spells in the north with a few fog patches.


Rain across central areas fragmenting, then variable cloud, sunny intervals and showers, heaviest with risk of hail and thunder across southern parts.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Showers for many on Sunday, heaviest in the south and west, with hail and thunder. Showers again Monday, though with a focus further east. Fewer showers generally Tuesday. Rather cool.


UK long range weather forecast

Unsettled conditions continuing, with scattered showers again developing across most areas. To start the period, these may be heavy, and at times wintry in the far north, especially over hills. Further into this period, it is likely to remain changeable with a mixture of sunshine and scattered showers, though heavy in places with a risk of thunder. Brief spells of more organised cloud, bringing rain and strong winds, remain possible, particularly in the south. Generally staying breezy throughout. While temperatures by night are likely to below average, frost is expected to be restricted to prone locations, especially where winds fall light. By day, temperatures are likely to be around or slightly below average, notably cool in the South but cold in the North.


Confidence is low for this period, typical of Spring and early Summer. It is likely for conditions to remain changeable with showers at first, but probably becoming more settled with an increasing likelihood of drier conditions for many places. Temperatures possibly recovering to nearer average but with more settled conditions bringing some warmer days, and some cooler nights remain possible.
