Fine and dry on Thursday, with sunny spells and patchy fair-weather cloud. Some showers possible for the extreme northeast, accompanied by breezy winds; these winds are also expected for the far southwest where gale force gusts could be seen around hills and exposed headlands. By the end of the week, high pressure is expected to dominate, meaning most places will be dry and bright, with some morning fog patches in places. After a dip in daytime temperatures at the start of the period, it will probably warm slightly by day, although overnight frosts remain probable in rural areas. These settled conditions are expected to persist for most places until the end of April, with the greatest potential for rain and stronger winds across the south and southwest.


Mixed weather patterns, typical of spring are most likely through the first half of May. Overall, fine and dry weather is expected to be most dominant, with fair-weather cloud and plenty of sunny spells. However, all areas are likely to see some showers or perhaps some longer spells of rain at times, with these unsettled periods more likely than they were in April. Temperatures are likely to be close to the average for the time of year, with the possibility of some warmer spells.
