Regional Forecast for London & South East England

Headline:

Further sunshine Saturday, but also a risk of thundery showers.

This Evening and Tonight:

Any showers in the Thames Estuary will soon fade to leave generally dry conditions with late sunshine. Eastern coastal districts becoming cool overnight, with mist and low cloud moving in on the onshore breeze. Staying milder and clearer further west. Minimum temperature 7 °C.

Saturday:

Starting fine, with patchy mist soon dispersing to another very warm day with lengthy sunny periods, although for many this will culminate in sporadic, potentially thundery showers later. Maximum temperature 27 °C.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Sunday starting warm and humid, with sunshine but perhaps also thundery showers, freshening from the northwest later. Becoming cloudier, breezier and less warm into the working week.

Updated: 14:44 on Fri 20 Apr 2018 BST

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Mostly dry with clear skies tonight.

This Evening and Tonight:

Any early evening showers in the southeast will be dying out to leave a dry night, with mostly clear skies. There may be some low cloud and fog around some western and eastern coastal areas, with some fog patches inland.

Saturday:

A warm, sunny day for most once early fog has cleared, although mist, low cloud may affect some western and eastern coasts. Thundery showers will spread northeastwards during the afternoon.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Thundery showers will clear eastwards early on Sunday, but with rain affecting parts of the north and west. Unsettled, cooler and breezy on Monday and Tuesday, with rain at times.

Updated: 14:02 on Fri 20 Apr 2018 BST

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Wednesday 25 Apr 2018 to Friday 4 May 2018:

Cloud and outbreaks of rain should soon clear the southeast of England on Wednesday, leaving most areas with a mix of sunny spells and blustery showers, with these heaviest and most frequent in the north and west. A spell of rain and strong winds will then move into the west later on Wednesday, before clearing east during Thursday morning, with sunshine and showers following once again. For the rest of the period it will be generally changeable, with the best of any drier and brighter weather in the southeast, but with a chance of some rain at times even here. Temperatures overall will be around average, but it may be rather warm in the south and east at times.

UK Outlook for Saturday 5 May 2018 to Saturday 19 May 2018:

At the start of May changeable conditions are probable at first, with the southeast seeing the best of any drier, warmer weather, while the northwest will have more frequent spells of rain or showers. The forecast through the rest of this period is currently very uncertain, but through the first half of May it looks as though we could see a mixture of periods of more settled, fine and dry conditions interspersed with spells of showery and more changeable weather. Overall it will be wettest in the northwest, and driest in the southeast. Temperatures are likely to be around average, but with the risk of some cooler northerly winds at times.
