UK long range weather forecast
Tuesday looks like being dry and bright for most, with temperatures a little above average, though there is a risk of rain in Northern Ireland. A pattern of generally dry weather looks likely to continue for the first few days of May and into the bank holiday weekend. Day time temperatures may well become relatively warm and springlike, though less warm than we had last week. Reduced cloud amounts at night mean that night time temperatures may be fairly cold, with some fog patches, and even some late frost in susceptible parts of the north. The dry situation with light winds is uncertain though and there remains a chance of spells of wet, windy and cooler weather at times, especially in the north and west.
There are indications that fine and dry weather will dominate in this period, with temperatures perhaps above the seasonal average. The highest temperatures are most likely in the south and southeast. This dry scenario with light winds is far from certain though and there are likely to be spells of wet, windy and cooler weather at times, particularly in the north and west.
