UK long range weather forecast

High pressure will likely be retreating to the northwest of the UK at the start of this period, with conditions turning generally more unsettled than the previous few days as low pressure becomes more dominant. Wet weather is perhaps more likely to develop in parts of the south and east, with western and especially northern areas hanging on to the best of any drier interludes, though all parts are may some rain at times. Onshore winds along eastern coasts will likely make it feel rather cold at times, though for all parts temperatures will often be a little below average. Into early May, something of a north-south split looks possible, with relatively drier conditions further to the north and the greatest chance of rain further to the south.

Updated:

In this period, the chances of unsettled weather are slightly less than usual in the north and about the same as usual further south. Therefore, some spells of wetter weather are likely for all, but perhaps especially southern areas at first with the driest conditions probably further north. Temperatures will probably near or a little below average at first, but likely to recover to around or a little above average as the period progresses. Also worth noting that average temperatures themselves rise by around 1C per week at this time of year.
