Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Sunday 29 Apr 2018 to Tuesday 8 May 2018:

Northern and western parts of the UK should be mainly dry on Sunday and Monday, except for the odd shower. In the south and east it is likely to be changeable with showers or longer spells of rain and stronger winds. Temperatures will be close to average but along North Sea coasts it will feel colder with easterly winds. Mixed conditions will then continue through the first week of May with brisk winds and spells of rain at times, perhaps with some snow over the Scottish mountains. Some drier and sunnier spells too. Temperatures will remain close to average throughout, but at times it will feel colder with a greater risk of frost overnight, especially in the north.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 9 May 2018 to Wednesday 23 May 2018:

Mixed weather conditions are mostly likely to continue into early May, with showers or longer spells of rain, interspersed with drier and brighter interludes. A more settled spell may develop for a time in early May, especially in the north. Thereafter, there are some signs that from mid-month it may become drier and settled more widely across the UK, although confidence in this aspect of the forecast is low. Temperatures are likely to be variable during this period as is often the case at this time of the year, averaging out close to normal. However, if a drier and more settled spell develops, then temperatures may become warmer than average.
