[Updated 07:00 18/05/2019]


Changeable weather continues during the next few days and most of the UK can expect to see some rain. There will also be some warm spells of sunshine, particularly in southern and central regions. Day to day details vary next week but the mixed theme continues....READ IN FULL

Saturday is off to a wet start in Scotland and Northern Ireland. It is also damp in much of southern and eastern England. This morning cloud starts to breaks across the southern half of the UK and sunny spells develop. Showers begin to bubble up and this afternoon a few of them become heavy. Scotland remains mainly overcast with further rain but in Northern Ireland it should brighten up.     

Temperatures range from 10C (50F) in Scotland to 20C (68F) in the south east. See the rain radar for the latest view.

Changeable next week

Little changes on Monday and Tuesday. Warm sunny spells and heavy showers are expected during the days. In the south they could be thundery. 

During the middle part of the week there are signs of it turning wetter as a more developed area of low pressure pushes in from the west. With less sunshine on Thursday and Friday daytime temperatures probably take a dip.

The prospects for Friday and the Bank Holiday weekend are uncertain. At the moment a changeable theme is favoured with a risk of showery rain in all regions. There are tentative indications of high pressure beginning to build in from the southwest. If that happens southern counties may turn drier and warmer.
