UK long range weather forecast
Wednesday starts cool and bright with isolated showers in the northwest. Many other places should have a mainly dry day with sunny spells but rain may move across parts of the north and west. The end of next week and following weekend is uncertain but probably sees spells unsettled of weather, mainly across the north and northwest, with drier and brighter conditions continuing elsewhere. Temperatures will recover to near or above average by day, but with some chilly nights. During the remainder of the month high pressure is likely to remain close to the west or southwest bringing periods of settled and warmer conditions, especially to southern areas. The north and northwest may still have occasional bouts of wet and windy weather which may extend to other areas at times.
Confidence remains rather low during this period. However, there are signs that high pressure will increasingly dominate the weather across the British Isles. Southern areas are most likely to see the driest and sunniest weather at first, perhaps with some lingering wet and potentially windy conditions affecting the north. However, longer spells of dry and sunny weather may occasionally develop across all parts. Temperatures are generally likely to be warmer than average, although there is little indication of anything exceptional at this time.
