UK long range weather forecast

Many places cloudy to start with showers or outbreaks of rain on Friday and winds mostly light. These showers especially prevalent in the south, whilst tending to die away in the north through the day with the best of any sunshine here. Rather cloudy or misty along some North Sea coast in the north. Temperatures still a little below average for most, especially in the cloudier south. The unsettled theme then continues through the remainder of this period, with longer spells of rain and showers in between, the clearest conditions are most likely in the north. 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 with the formation of overnight frosts becoming unlikely.


Confidence remains low for this period, although typical spring weather patterns are most probable, with a mixture of sunny spells and showers for most parts of the UK, especially at first. Overall, the driest and most settled conditions are most probable in the south, with the north generally more unsettled as longer spells of rain and strong winds arrive from the Atlantic at times. Temperatures likely to be around average.
