UK long range weather forecast

Cloudy on Thursday starting with outbreaks of rain and showers, especially in the southwest of the UK. Showers are expected to become more widespread during the day, with these heavy and potentially thundery for the south. The breeziest conditions expected in the far northwest. Remaining showery for the rest of the week with the chance of a brief settled spell from the west into Friday. The unsettled theme then continues through the remainder of this period, with longer spells of rain and showers in between, the clearest conditions are most likely in the north. It's likely to be breezy at times; especially around coastal areas, where gales may occur. Temperatures will be near to or slightly below average, though with the formation of overnight frosts becoming unlikely.


Confidence remains low for this period with weather conditions typical for Spring. A mixture of sunny spells and showers is likely, especially at first, with areas in the south experiencing the most settled and dry conditions through this period. Towards the north and northwest there is an increased chance of unsettled weather as longer spells of rain and strong winds arrive from the Atlantic at times. Temperatures likely to be around average.
