Next weekend could be very unsettled, with often heavy rain and the risk of gales, especially in the west and southwest. Thunder and hail are likely at times and temperatures will mainly be on the cold side of average. Thereafter, for the remainder of April and into early May, unsettled conditions are likely to dominate, with a chance of showers or longer spells of rain and some periods of stronger winds, especially in the west and southwest. Whilst some rain is expected at times, there could be a shift towards more settled conditions later. Temperatures will most likely be near normal in the west, and slightly warmer than the seasonal average in the south and southeast.

Any warmer conditions are most likely in the south and southeast.
