Updated:

UK long range weather forecast

Likely still some showers for some parts of the country at the start of the period but generally a more widespread dry spell of weather is likely to end the week with increasing brighter spells and milder temperatures. However, into the weekend there is an increasing likelihood that unsettled conditions with cloud and longer spells of rain spread up from the south and west with cooler more showery conditions across the north. This likely setting the broad pattern for the subsequent week with occasional showers and longer spells of rain alongside stronger winds at times in the south with brighter but occasionally showery conditions across the north. Temperatures most likely just above average between systems in the south, nearer average in northern areas.

Updated:

During the rest of the month, there is an increase in the chance of blocking patterns, with winds blowing more frequently from the north and east than is usual. At this time of year, winds from this direction can still bring wintry hazards, such as snow and ice, but the risk of these is likely to decrease as the month progresses. The wettest conditions are most likely to be in the south, with northern areas drier overall. Overall temperatures are more likely to be near or below average, though some warmer days are still possible at times.
