    Regional forecast for Wales

    A bright start in the east, showery rain soon arriving.


    There should be some brightness around this morning in the east, but soon clouding over ahead of a band of showery rain that will push across Wales today. This should clear through later on. Maximum Temperature 13 °C.


    Further rain will arrive this evening, and it will become increasingly windy with gales widely, and severe gales along southern and western coasts. Minimum Temperature 6 °C.


    Saturday will start wet and windy, and chilly in the wind, with a very different feel to last Saturday. It will become gradually drier and brighter from the southwest. Maximum Temperature 12 °C.

    Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

    A quieter day on Sunday, though rather cloudy. Monday and Tuesday see cloud and rain edging in to western areas at times; the best of any sunshine in the east.

    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Tuesday 30 Apr 2019 to Thursday 9 May 2019:

    Tuesday looks like being dry and bright for most, with temperatures a little above average, though there is a risk of rain in Northern Ireland. A pattern of generally dry weather looks likely to continue for the first few days of May and into the bank holiday weekend. Day time temperatures may well become relatively warm and springlike, though less warm than we had last week. Reduced cloud amounts at night mean that night time temperatures may be fairly cold, with some fog patches, and even some late frost in susceptible parts of the north. The dry situation with light winds is uncertain though and there remains a chance of spells of wet, windy and cooler weather at times, especially in the north and west.

    UK Outlook for Friday 10 May 2019 to Friday 24 May 2019:

    There are indications that fine and dry weather will dominate in this period, with temperatures perhaps above the seasonal average. The highest temperatures are most likely in the south and southeast. This dry scenario with light winds is far from certain though and there are likely to be spells of wet, windy and cooler weather at times, particularly in the north and west.
