Page loading ...

Dry and frosty overnight. Sunny spells and isolated showers Sunday.

This Evening and Tonight:

Any light showers around at first will soon die away, leaving a dry night with long clear spells developing and so allowing a widespread frost to develop Minimum Temperature -2C.


After a chilly but mostly sunny start to the day, cloud will build. Still most places will remain dry with sunny spells, but a few afternoon showers are possible. Maximum Temperature 11C.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

Night frost Monday then dry with sunny spells. Overnight rain clearing on Tuesday, then brighter with scattered showers later. Wednesday colder with showers, perhaps wintry over high ground.

Day 6 to 15

Thursday looks to be cold across the UK, with a few wintry showers possible in the north. Later on Thursday and into Good Friday, southern parts of the UK will probably see outbreaks of rain whereas further north this could bring a risk of sleet or snow at times. For the rest of the Easter weekend, it's still too early to forecast in much detail, but it looks to be unsettled with a mix of sunny spells, showers, longer spells of rain and some snow, mainly in the north. The driest and brightest conditions will be in the northwest. Frost overnight but perhaps milder in the south at times. Further ahead, the weather may become more settled, with brief interludes of wintry showers, and rather cold, with frost at night.

Day 16 to 30

Colder than average conditions are likely to prevail overall through the middle part of April, with frost likely overnight. In the north the weather looks to be fairly settled although there will be a few wintry showers. Further south, there may be more in the way of wet and windy weather at times, and showers, perhaps wintry. Later in the month, it is possible that we could start to see some warmer weather, with less cold nights, and it may become drier generally.
