UK long range weather forecast

Cloud across the south of the UK early on Wednesday will clear away leaving most places dry with sunny spells and light winds. Some showers are likely in the north, these wintry over hills in Scotland. By the end of next week high pressure is expected to dominate, meaning most places will be dry and bright, with some morning fog patches in places. It will probably turn warmer, although overnight frosts are still possible in rural areas. These settled conditions are expected to persist for most places until the end of April. However, there is still potential for rain and strong winds to affect the northwest at times, with the possibility that these unsettled conditions may spread farther southeast.


Mixed weather patterns, typical of spring are most likely through the first half of May. Overall, fine and dry weather is expected to be most dominant, with fair-weather cloud and plenty of sunny spells. However, all areas are likely to see some showers or perhaps some longer spells of rain at times, with these unsettled periods more likely than they were in April. Temperatures are likely to be close to average for the time of year, with the possibility of warmer spells at times.
