    UK Outlook for Tuesday 11 May 2021 to Thursday 20 May 2021:

    A mixture of sunny spells and scattered showers are likely on Tuesday, with some of the showers being locally heavy and possibly thundery. The most frequent downpours will be in the north and west, and a more organised band of rain may approach from the southwest later in the day. Southern parts of the country could well receive rain on Wednesday and Thursday, while conditions further north could be clearer but showery. The unsettled theme continues through the remainder of this period, with longer spells of rain and showers in between. It's likely to be breezy at times; especially around coastal areas, where gales may occur. Temperatures will be near to or slightly below average, though overnight frosts becoming unlikely.

Temperatures likely to be around average.
