    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Tuesday 27 Apr 2021 to Thursday 6 May 2021:

    A settled regime will likely be in place across much of the country at first with high pressure likely to be centred to the west or northwest of the UK. However, there is the threat of some rain and a few showers in the north and east, as well as the chance of some rain moving up from the south and affecting southern parts of the country later. Throughout this period, there is also a continued threat of rural frost and patchy fog where winds fall light. Temperatures are quite uncertain depending on where the area of high pressure resides, particularly in the east where temperatures are likely to struggle above average. Warmer days are most likely to be further inland towards the south and west.

    UK Outlook for Friday 7 May 2021 to Friday 21 May 2021:

    Confidence is low for this period as is typical of spring. The UK will likely see spells of fine, dry weather at times with fair-weather cloud and plenty of sunny spells, as well as an increased likelihood of more unsettled periods when compared to April. All areas expected to see showers or longer spells of rain at times. Temperatures are likely to be close to the average for the time of year, with the possibility of some warmer spells.
