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 Wednesday 28 Mar 2018 to Friday 6 Apr 2018:

Outbreaks of rain for many on Wednesday, but cold in the north with snow falling on the hills, and perhaps to lower levels. Thursday may be cold for all parts, with a few wintry showers possible. For 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 and showers. It will be cold, and the showers could be a mix of rain sleet or snow, with snow most likely in the north. More persistent rain may move north at times, with a risk of this turning to snow. Further ahead, the weather may become a little more settled, with perhaps brief interludes of wintry showers, and it will be rather cold, with frost at night.

UK Outlook for Saturday 7 Apr 2018 to Saturday 21 Apr 2018:

Colder than average conditions are likely to prevail overall through the middle part of April. It will often be showery, with fairly light winds, and a risk of overnight frosts. The showers could be heavy, but there are also likely to be good spells of sunshine in-between. There could occasionally be some snowfall, but this will mainly be over higher ground and in the north. Any milder, wetter and windier spells are likely to be relatively short lived. Towards the end of the month, it is possible that we could start to see some warmer weather, with less cold nights, and it may become drier generally.
