UK long range weather forecast

The most likely scenario for the start of this period is for mainly settled conditions to be in place across the country. Unsettled conditions with rain showers may spread erratically from the west at times. The heaviest and most prolonged rain as well as the strongest winds, are most likely for western and north-western areas, with eastern areas likely remaining drier and brighter. Temperatures will likely remain at or slightly below average at first, before recovering to potentially slightly above average for a time over the weekend. Confidence decreases after this, however towards the end of this period it will likely be turning less unsettled with more dry and bright interludes. Generally, it is expected to feel rather warm, although temperatures could be supressed in wetter areas.


Confidence remains low for this period, however, mixed and slowly evolving weather patterns, typical of spring, are most likely through the late-April into May. Fine and dry weather is likely to be more prevalent overall, especially during late-April, with this signal waning during May, although all areas are likely to see some showers or longer spells of rain at times. Temperatures probably close to average with some warmer spells are possible at times.
