UK forecast for the next 5 days
Dry, warm and sunny for most.
Early fog will clear to leave another dry, sunny and warm day for most, although mist may linger along western coasts. Northern Scotland will be cloudier with a few showers, and an isolated shower is possible in southeastern England later.
Any remaining showers will die away to leave a dry night. Eastern and western coasts will see patchy fog at times, and some shallow fog will form inland by morning.
A sunny day for most once early fog has cleared, although misty low cloud will affect some western and eastern coasts. Isolated thundery showers will spread northeastwards during the afternoon.
Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:
Thundery showers will clear eastwards on Sunday, but with rain affecting parts of the north and west. Unsettled, cooler and breezy on Monday and Tuesday, with rain at times.
Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days
UK Outlook for Wednesday 25 Apr 2018 to Friday 4 May 2018:
Cloud and outbreaks of rain should soon clear the southeast of England on Wednesday, leaving most areas with a mix of sunny spells and blustery showers, with these heaviest and most frequent in the north and west. A spell of rain and strong winds will then move into the west later on Wednesday, before clearing east during Thursday morning, with sunshine and showers following once again. 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 Saturday 5 May 2018 to Saturday 19 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.
