UK long range weather forecast

Unsettled and first with showers or longer spells of rain. Most of the rain and showers will be across southern and western regions, with the north and east probably mostly dry. From the middle of next week a more widespread dry spell of weather is likely to develop with increasing amounts of sunshine and, following a chilly start to the week, temperatures should rise a little above average for the time of year. Some rain will be remain possible at times, though this will be confined to western parts of the UK. Towards mid-month conditions are expected to turn more unsettled again, especially across the south, where rain and showers could become frequent and heavy at times. Northern areas more likely to have further decent spells of fine, dry weather.

Updated:

During the rest of the month, there is a slight increase in the chance of blocking patterns, with winds blowing more frequently from the north and east than is usual. At this time of year, winds from this direction can still bring wintry hazards, such as snow and ice, but the risk of these is likely to decrease as the month progresses. The wettest conditions are most likely to be in the south, with northern areas drier overall. Overall temperatures are more likely to be near or below average, though some warmer days are still possible at times.
