UK forecast for the next 5 days


Largely dry with sunny spells and a few showers.


Many places will stay dry today with sunny spells. However, cloud will thicken at times to give a few isolated showers, perhaps wintry at first. It will feel less cold than recently in lighter winds.


Showers will be confined to the far northwest tonight, leaving a largely dry night elsewhere. A frost will develop for many places with a few fog patches in the southeast.


Skies will gradually cloud over from the northwest, but sunny spells are likely for much of the day in the south. Outbreaks of rain will slowly spread across the north.

Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

Dry for many on Thursday, although rain slowly moving into the northwest. Mostly cloudy on Friday with rain moving east. Sunshine and showers on Saturday. Milder than of late.

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Sunday 25 Mar 2018 to Tuesday 3 Apr 2018:

There will be sunshine and showers for most on Sunday, and some of these could be heavy and slow-moving with a risk of hail and thunder. Through the early part of next week the weather is likely to become changeable once again, with showers and rain at times, interspersed by drier and brighter interludes. Temperatures will be near average or rather cold during the day, with a risk of overnight frosts. The Easter weekend is still too far away to be confident with any details. The most likely scenario currently is a spell of colder than average weather, with increased likelihood of overnight frosts, and a greater than normal chance of snow, especially in the north.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 4 Apr 2018 to Wednesday 18 Apr 2018:

Colder than average conditions are likely to prevail overall; often showery with fairly light winds, and a continued chance of overnight frosts. Showers could be heavy with hail and thunder at times, but there are also likely to be good spells of sunshine in-between. Showers or longer spells of rain could fall as snow at times, mainly over higher ground and in the north. Any milder, wetter and windier spells are likely to be relatively short lived. Towards the middle of the month, it is possible that we could start to see some warmer temperatures, less cold nights, and it may become drier generally.
