UK forecast for the next 5 days


Cloudy and damp England and Wales. Sunshine and showers elsewhere.


Cloudy and damp across much of England and Wales, although the rain should turn lighter and more patchy by the afternoon. Sunny spells for Scotland, Northern Ireland and northern England but with scattered showers, locally heavy with hail and thunder.


Staying cloudy across southeastern areas throughout the night with patchy rain at times. Clearer elsewhere with the risk of frost and fog. Showers continuing in the far northwest.


A cloudy and damp start for many southeastern areas, but turning brighter through the afternoon. Plenty of sunshine elsewhere with a few showers across northwestern areas. Light winds for most.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

After a dry start, rain and strengthening winds will spread eastwards through Monday, clearing during Tuesday, and falling as snow over Scottish hills. Colder with sunshine and showers by Wednesday.

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Thursday 29 Mar 2018 to Saturday 7 Apr 2018:

Thursday looks to be cold across the UK, with a few wintry showers possible in the north. Later on Thursday and into Good Friday, southern parts of the UK will probably see outbreaks of rain whereas further north this could bring a risk of sleet or snow at times. For the rest of the Easter weekend, it's still too early to forecast in much detail, but it looks to be unsettled with a mix of sunny spells, showers, longer spells of rain and some snow, mainly in the north. The driest and brightest conditions will be in the northwest. Frost overnight but perhaps milder in the south at times. Further ahead, the weather may become more settled, with brief interludes of wintry showers, and rather cold, with frost at night.

UK Outlook for Sunday 8 Apr 2018 to Sunday 22 Apr 2018:

Colder than average conditions are likely to prevail overall through the middle part of April, with frost likely overnight. In the north the weather looks to be fairly settled although there will be a few wintry showers. Further south, there may be more in the way of wet and windy weather at times, and showers, perhaps wintry. Later in the month, it is possible that we could start to see some warmer weather, with less cold nights, and it may become drier generally.
