Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Friday 20 Apr 2018 to Sunday 29 Apr 2018:

Friday looks mostly dry and warm, locally very warm, with a good deal of sunshine. However, there is a low risk of a heavy and possibly thundery shower developing in the south. Areas of misty low cloud are also possible around some coasts. A change to more unsettled weather is likely next weekend and into the following week, with temperatures trending back closer to average too. Initially southern and western areas are more likely to see rain or showers developing, although increasingly it will be the turn of the north and northwest to see a deterioration, with some wet and windy weather. South-eastern and some central areas can expect the best of any brighter and warmer weather. Towards the end of April, the weather may become generally more unsettled.

UK Outlook for Monday 30 Apr 2018 to Monday 14 May 2018:

The weather is likely to be more unsettled at the end of April and beginning of May. Showers or longer spells of rain are expected, which are likely to be most frequent in the northwest, with south-eastern parts of the British Isles still having some decent dry and bright spells. Temperatures are likely to have returned to near average. Confidence in the forecast reduces as we head into May, although mixed conditions are expected, with some showery periods, interspersed by some drier spells. Temperatures are likely to vary quite markedly, perhaps with some cold northerly winds developing for a time during the early to middle part of May.
