Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Thursday 26 Apr 2018 to Saturday 5 May 2018:

There will be sunny spells and scattered showers on Thursday, the showers being heaviest and most frequent in the north and northwest with a risk of thunder at times, the driest and brightest conditions being in the south. Conditions will probably be drier on Friday with the showers becoming confined to the north. It will be rather windy on Thursday, but the winds will become lighter on Friday. For the rest of the period it will be generally changeable, with the best of any drier and brighter weather in the southeast, but with a chance of some rain at times even here. Temperatures overall will be around average, but it may be rather warm in the south and east at times.

UK Outlook for Sunday 6 May 2018 to Sunday 20 May 2018:

At the start of May changeable conditions are probable at first, with the southeast seeing the best of any drier, warmer weather, while the northwest will have more frequent spells of rain or showers. The forecast through the rest of this period is currently very uncertain, but through the first half of May it looks as though we could see a mixture of periods of more settled, fine and dry conditions interspersed with spells of showery and more changeable weather. Overall it will be wettest in the northwest, and driest in the southeast. 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.
