Sunny spells and showers are likely on Friday with some showers heavy with a risk of hail and thunder, especially in the north.

It will be generally rather cold with some overnight frost possible in the north. Into the start of May conditions will be generally changeable and windy at times. There will be some drier, sunnier spells, these most likely in the north and northwest. Temperatures will be near or just below average, with only a small chance of warmer conditions.

Temperatures are likely to be around average, but with the risk of some cooler northerly winds at times, although there is a greater chance of above average temperatures into the second half of the month.
