Regional Forecast for London & South East England

Headline:

Becoming dry overnight, sunny intervals and the odd shower tomorrow.

Thursday:

A dry start with sunny spells, but a few showers will again develop by afternoon, although lighter and less frequent than on Wednesday. Breezy at times. Maximum temperature 15 °C.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

Outbreaks of rain spreading northeast Friday, perhaps locally heavy later. Saturday rather cold with rain clearing to showers. Sunday still rather cold with further rain likely, especially in the east.

Updated: 13:39 on Wed 25 Apr 2018 BST

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Showers easing and chilly in the north.

This Evening and Tonight:

Showers in the south and east will ease, with lighter winds. Clear spells will develop, with patchy frost most likely in the north. Some showers may continue in northern and western areas, which could be heavy.

Thursday:

Sunshine and blustery showers will affect the north. It will be a drier and sunnier day in the south, with only isolated showers likely, and the cloud will thicken later.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

Friday will be wet and windy, with gales possible along southern coasts. Saturday and Sunday will turn drier, however outbreaks of rain may arrive in the southeast later.

Updated: 14:52 on Wed 25 Apr 2018 BST

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Monday 30 Apr 2018 to Wednesday 9 May 2018:

Northern and western parts of the UK are likely to be mainly dry and bright on Monday, apart from the odd shower. In the south and east significant rainfall is possible accompanied by stronger winds. However, there is uncertainty about the time and place of the heavy rain and some areas could get a sunny day. Temperatures will be a little below average and cold enough for a slight overnight frost in the north and north-west. Changeable weather will continue during the first few days of May with brisk winds and spells of rain at times, but a few drier and sunnier spells too. Temperatures will tend to recover to near normal but at times it will feel colder, so overnight frost in the north remains possible.

UK Outlook for Thursday 10 May 2018 to Thursday 24 May 2018:

A dry and bright spell of weather with light winds may develop at the start of this period especially in the north, bringing slightly above-average temperatures. However, confidence in this aspect of the forecast is low. Mixed weather with showers or longer periods of rain remain possible. In fact, there is a signal for a greater number of heavy showers than usual in the south, perhaps including thunder at times. Where the weather does becomes wet and windy, temperatures will drop down to average or a little below.
