UK long range weather forecast
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.
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.
