Showers becoming more scattered

[Updated 07:00 11/05/2019]

Fair weather cloud

Showers bubble up again today but they will be more hit and miss than recently. During the next few days high pressure builds in from the west. It brings a lot of fine and quite warm weather. By the second half of next week a cooler northeasterly flow returns and it probably starts to turn more unsettled in the south....READ IN FULL

Saturday starts with showers in parts of eastern England. Elsewhere it is dry and locally in the north there has been a ground frost. During the course of the day showers become more widespread and heavy. Most of them will be in central and eastern areas but there could be an odd one in the west. All regions have sunny spells with the best of them in the west.

Temperatures range from 10C (50F) in Scotland to 17C (63F) in the south. See the rain radar for the latest view.

Drier and warmer for a time

Early next week high pressure will be the dominant feature of the weather. It leads to a settled and rather warm period. Daytime temperatures are expected to be generally between 18C (64F) and 22C (72F). Unusually the highest values could be in Scotland and to the northeast of the Cairngorms 25C (77F) is not out of the question.

During the second half of the week the high pressure migrates northwards towards Iceland and Greenland. That leads to a cooler and cloudier northeasterly flow, with the brightest skies in the west. There is also a growing risk of showery rain in southern counties as low pressure approaches from the southwest.
