Weather and climate change
UK 5 day weather forecast
Remaining dry and settled.
This Evening and Tonight:
Cloud across eastern areas will gradually spread westwards across much of England, east Wales and southeastern Scotland. Clearer skies elsewhere with a few fog patches forming. Colder than previous nights in the north, with a touch of frost in Scotland.
Early cloud soon breaking and clearing more readily than previous days. Warmest in the west, with some southern and eastern coastal areas cooler thanks to the northeasterly breeze.
Outlook for Saturday to Monday:
High pressure will dominate giving mainly fine and settled weather. Warm sunshine for many, although low cloud persisting across parts of the north and east. Breezy in the south.
UK long range weather forecast
In general, the UK is likely to see a continuation of the recent dry weather for much of this period. Eastern and northern areas are likely to see more cloud than the west, especially in coastal areas exposed to onshore winds. It will likely feel warm to rather warm across western areas, though cooler in the east when under cloud. There is a chance of isolated showers, mostly over high ground, in the early part of the period, with a small, but increasing, risk of rain or showers, perhaps thundery, over parts of southern and south-eastern England and Wales as the period progresses. Winds are likely to be light for most, though stronger in the south of England, and in coastal areas near the English Channel.
An uncertain second half to the month. The most likely scenario is for dry settled conditions in the north, and a risk of rain or showers, perhaps thundery, in the south. Winds may ease over the period leading to temperatures increasing to average to above average in eastern areas; elsewhere in the UK, it is likely to feel warm to rather warm.
