UK forecast for the next 5 days


Mostly dry with sunny spells. Rain in the west later.


Patchy rain and drizzle in some eastern areas will clear this morning, to leave dry day for most with some sunny spells. Southerly winds will strengthen in the west as cloud and rain move into the west later. Milder.


A wet and windy night in the west will turn showery as central areas of the UK turn rainy through the small hours. Staying dry but cloudy in the southeast.


Rain or showers, heavy at times, in the north and possibly for the southwest later, with the best of the sunny, dry weather in the southeast.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

Saturday and Sunday will see a mix of sunny spells interspersed between rain and scattered showers. Winds will be mostly light. Turning wet and windy from the west on Monday.

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Monday 26 Mar 2018 to Wednesday 4 Apr 2018:

There will be sunshine and showers on Monday, though rain is likely to spread in from the west later and through into Tuesday. Sunshine and showers following, these falling as snow over the high ground in the north. For the rest of this period, the weather will remain changeable, with showers and rain at times, interspersed by drier and brighter interludes. Snow may also occur at times, more especially in the north. Temperatures are likely to be rather cold, with a risk of overnight frosts. The Easter weekend is 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 showers, especially in the north.

UK Outlook for Thursday 5 Apr 2018 to Thursday 19 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.
