Sunny intervals and showers with the odd heavy one possible.
Dry for most this morning with broken cloud and some sunny intervals. Showers are likely to develop this afternoon, with the odd heavier one possible, though some places could escape and stay dry. Maximum Temperature 11C.
Showers should slowly die away this evening and overnight with most places becoming dry. Under clearing skies turning chilly in some rural spots by the end of the night. Minimum Temperature 3C.
After a chilly start, Friday should be a fine and dry day for most with some sunshine. Just an outside chance of an isolated light shower through the afternoon. Maximum Temperature 13C.
Outlook for Saturday to Monday:
Saturday dry for most with some sunshine. Sunday breezier with outbreaks of rain likely later. Further rain likely at times Monday, but also some drier interludes.
Day 6 to 15
Any showers on Tuesday should become lighter for many, but some may linger in the south east. Elsewhere it will be largely dry and bright, with some sunshine. Wednesday is likely to be dry with some sunshine for many, and temperatures next week are expected to be around average for early May, meaning we will lose the risk of overnight frosts. Then from Thursday onwards we are likely to see high pressure dominate. Easterly winds will develop, with largely dry and settled weather prevailing, and increasing amounts of sunshine. The settled weather is also likely to bring temperatures slightly above average, especially during the sunnier interludes, but it will feel cooler along eastern coasts, and there will be the risk of sea fog at times here too.
Day 16 to 30
Heading into the middle of May, continued dry and settled weather remains most probable. There may however be some occasional wetter interludes though, with the south most likely to see these. Temperatures are likely to remain above average for the time of year, and they will possibly become very warm at times. It will also continue to be drier than average.
