UK forecast for the next 5 days


Temperatures rising by day, but frosty again tonight.

This Evening and Tonight:

A few showers at first across eastern England, but otherwise dry with lengthy clear periods. Turning frosty for many, with a few fog patches developing in southern England later. Cloudier skies and patchy rain into the far northwest by dawn.


A fine and chilly start for many, and remaining mostly sunny in the south. Rain in the far northwest will extend across other northern areas. Notably milder in northeast Scotland.

Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

Less cold, but becoming more changeable with spells of rain interspersed with showers, and occasionally quite windy. Driest in the east and south. Some overnight frost returning by the weekend.

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.
