Regional Forecast for West Midlands


Rain, then sunshine and showers.


A wet start with outbreaks of rain, moving northwards through the morning. Skies will brighten thereafter, but this will spark heavy and thundery showers, with the risk of hail and gusty winds. Breezier for all and feeling fresh. Maximum temperature 16 °C.


Thundery showers will ease through the evening, giving a dry night with clear spells. It will turn chilly in places, with a few pockets of fog possible. Minimum temperature 4 °C.


Dry and bright to begin with, but soon clouding over with a spell of rain through the middle of the day. Some brighter skies again later with scattered showers. Maximum temperature 15 °C.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

Cool, wet and windy on Saturday with gales and spells of heavy rain. Drier and brighter on Sunday, although still with a few showers possible. Further rain arriving on Monday.

UK forecast for the next 5 days


Fresher for many with sunshine and showers.


Outbreaks of rain will push northwards, with scattered heavy and thundery showers following across England and Wales, perhaps with hail and gusty winds. Some warm sunshine too, especially southeast England and northern Scotland. Breezy and generally feeling fresher.


Heavy showers will ease for most, although further showers will continue in some western parts. Elsewhere, mainly dry with clear spells and turning chilly with the odd fog patch.


Some sunny spells, but scattered, possibly heavy thundery showers in the east, with a band of cloud and rain moving east. Becoming wet and very windy in the southwest later.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

Unsettled and cool on Saturday with spells of rain and gales, especially in the south. Drier, and brighter on Sunday, although some showers still possible. Further rain arriving during Monday.

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Monday 29 Apr 2019 to Wednesday 8 May 2019:

Mostly cloudy with outbreaks of rain on Monday, although a dry start for southeastern parts of the UK, perhaps. Rain and cloud will slowly clear to scattered showers and some sunny spells from the west for the afternoon. For the end of April changeable weather is likely to dominate, with a chance of showers or longer spells of rain and some periods of stronger winds, especially in the west and southwest. These will be interspersed with drier but probably short-lived sunny spells. Temperatures will most likely be near normal in the west, and slightly warmer than the seasonal average in the south and southeast. There is a chance of a shift towards drier warmer weather by the bank holiday weekend but this is far from certain.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 8 May 2019 to Wednesday 22 May 2019:

For the middle of May, a trend back to some wet and windy weather is possible. However, there are indications of a return towards more settled weather as the month progresses. A good deal of fine and dry weather is possible, with temperatures perhaps above the seasonal average. The highest temperatures are most likely in the south and southeast.
