UK 5 day weather forecast


Dry and fine for many. Turning more unsettled this weekend

This Evening and Tonight:

Plenty of dry weather with some good clear spells. Cloudier conditions sinking south across Scotland and perhaps into Northern Ireland with a little light rain possible. Perhaps the odd shower in parts of the south.


Dry and fine for most and feeling warm. A few heavy showers may develop in parts of southern England. Cloudier over Scotland and Northern Ireland with some spots of rain.

Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

Mostly dry and warm in central and southern areas with hazy sunshine. Turning more unsettled with rain and showers in the north and west on Friday and elsewhere during Saturday.


UK long range weather forecast

After an unsettled start to the week with showers across central and southern parts there should be a return to drier and brighter conditions with plenty of sunshine especially across the south. Some rain is still possible at times over parts of northern Scotland. Towards the end of the period it is likely that the drier weather will prevail, however, they may be spells of wet and windy weather at times. These more changeable periods are more likely across southern England with northwestern areas seeing the best of the drier conditions. Likely to see a large day and night variation in temperature with mild days giving way to chilly nights and a risk of frost in the north.


Although confidence is low during this time period, the most probable scenario is that dry weather should dominate, with some interludes of more changeable weather at times. Towards the end of the period, there appears to be some signals that it may be drier towards the northwest of the UK, with some wetter and windier weather further south. Temperatures are likely to vary around the average or even slightly above, with some large variations between day and night.
