14 day UK weather forecast

Settled for most of the period.

UK outlook issued Thursday 21st March 2019

Week 1


Friday: Wet and windy weather pushes southeastwards reaching northern England and Wales in the afternoon. Across Scotland and Northern Ireland brighter and showery conditions return during the afternoon. Southern and central England remain dry and where sunny spells develop it feels warm.

Saturday: England and Wales have mainly overcast conditions and in the south there will be patchy rain. Scotland and Northern Ireland have sunny spells and scattered showers which could be wintry over the hills. Chilly in the north.

Sunday: A cold start is likely with a widespread frost in the north and west. Most of the country stays bright but in Scotland cloud builds and outbreaks of rain possibly develop.

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday: All of the country has predominantly settled weather. There should be plenty of sunshine and during the days it probably starts to feel quite warm. Nights will be chilly and patchy frost remains a risk.

Forecast confidence is high.



Week 2

Turning more changeable.

All regions have a good deal of dry weather early on and temperatures will be above the seasonal average. Later on a transition to cooler and more changeable conditions is expected. The risk of rain returns, particularly to the north.

Forecast confidence is moderate.


Week 1

High pressure will be centred close to or over the UK throughout the week. During the first half of the period colder upper level air filters southwards. Later on warmer upper level air returns from the south or southwest. Atlantic disturbances affect the far north at times during the first few days.

Week 2

High pressure dominates early in the period. Later the likelihood of a more changeable pattern developing increases. Cold Arctic air may push southwards.
