UK long range weather forecast

Friday should be dry for many with long spells of sunshine. The highest temperatures will be seen across the south and southeast. Cloud could begin to move across western and northwestern areas bringing showery rain and strong winds. Over 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 large diurnal ranges could bring overnight frosts in the north. Beyond the Easter weekend, this weather pattern is expected to continue with the 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.
