UK long range weather forecast
Showers with thunderstorms will clear northwards on Thursday. However, further showers will continue in the southwest, spreading across many areas through the day, again with the risk of hail and thunder. Thereafter, for the remainder of April there is lower confidence in the forecast, but the weather will perhaps be more unsettled and generally less warm. There will be a chance of showers or longer spells of rain and some periods of stronger winds, especially in the west and southwest. However, some drier, brighter and warmer interludes are still likely at times, these most probable across southern and southeastern parts. Overall into early May, temperatures will most likely be near normal in the west, and warmer than average in the south and southeast.
Early May is likely to begin with unsettled conditions dominating, however, a shift towards more settled conditions is probable. Whilst some rain is possible at times, a good deal of fine and dry weather is most likely, with temperatures above the seasonal average. Any warmer conditions are most likely in the south and southeast.
