UK long range weather forecast

Saturday looks to be rather unsettled with a mixture of sunny spells and showers. There may be some occasional longer spells of rain, particularly in the north and northwest where it could turn windier than recent days. Turning cooler with temperatures returning close to average. Over the rest of the Easter weekend, there should be a good deal of dry, settled weather with sunny spells. It will be driest in the south, with the greatest chance of rain and stronger winds in the far north and northwest of the UK. Temperatures above normal, and warmest in the south, but with overnight frosts further north. Beyond the Easter weekend, this weather pattern is expected to continue with dry weather dominating.

Updated:

Although confidence is low during this time period, the most probable scenario is that dry weather should dominate, with some interludes of more changeable weather at times. Towards the end of the period, there appears to be some signals that it may be drier towards the northwest UK, with some wetter and windier weather further south. Temperatures are likely to vary around the average or even slightly above, with some large variations between day and night.
