    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Saturday 17 Apr 2021 to Monday 26 Apr 2021:

    The most likely scenario for the start of this period is for mainly settled conditions to be in place across the country as high pressure continues to dominate. However unsettled conditions, rain and stronger winds, may affect the northwest during the weekend and briefly spread across many areas at the start of next week, though southeastern areas will likely remain drier and brighter. Temperatures will likely remain at or slightly below average at first, before recovering to potentially slightly above average at times. Confidence decreases after this, however towards the end of this period, it looks as though settled conditions could well return, with dry and bright weather likely. Generally, it is expected to feel rather warm, although temperatures could be supressed in wetter areas.

    UK Outlook for Tuesday 27 Apr 2021 to Tuesday 11 May 2021:

    Confidence remains low for this period, however, mixed and slowly evolving weather patterns, typical of spring, are most likely through the late-April into May. Fine and dry weather is likely to be more prevalent overall, especially during late-April, with this signal waning during May, although all areas are likely to see some showers or longer spells of rain at times. Temperatures probably close to average with some warmer spells are possible at times.
