Showery weather continues today

[Updated 07:20 10/05/2019]

Showery sky

Low pressure remains close to the UK so there will be further rain in places today. During the next couple of days high pressure builds in from the west and showers become more scattered. The first half of next week is looking fine and pleasantly warm. Beyond that it could turn more unsettled again from the south....READ IN FULL

Friday starts with a band of rain in northern England and Northern Ireland. There are showers to the north of it but much of southern England is dry. During the course of the day showery conditions extend into southern counties, however there will be bright spells too. Late in the afternoon more persistent outbreaks of rain spread into the south west.

Temperatures range from 7C (45F) in Scotland to 17C (63F) in the south. See the rain radar for the latest view.

Monthly forecast


Summer 2019 weather [NEW]

Tomorrow morning any rain in the south eastern corner quickly clears. In other areas there will be sunny spells but showers bubble up and some of them will be heavy. As the day progresses they become more focused on central and eastern areas. A cold night follows and in the north there could be a patchy frost.

Drier and warmer for a time

By Sunday high pressure builds in from the west. It will be mainly dry and bright, but isolated showers are possible in the east. After a chilly start it feels warm in the afternoon sunshine.  

Early next week high pressure becomes the dominant feature of the weather. It should lead to a mainly settled and rather warm period. Daytime temperatures are expected to be between 18C (64F) and 22C (72F) and unusually the highest values could be in Scotland. 

During the second half of the week the high pressure migrates towards Iceland and Greenland. That leads to a northeasterly flow so it won't be particularly warm and near the east coast it could be cloudier. It also introduces the possibility of low pressure pushing up from the southwest and unsettled weather returning to southern and central areas.
