This Evening and Tonight:
Showers will become more widespread through the evening and then persist throughout the night. Some heavy downpours are possible, but with the cloud, we should escape a frost. Minimum Temperature 4 °C.
Tuesday will see sunshine and showers, again with these turning heavy at times, and bringing a risk of hail and thunder. In any sunshine, it should feel pleasant enough. Maximum Temperature 10 °C.
Outlook for Wednesday to Friday:
Showery again on Wednesday, but mostly dry by Thursday, and in lighter winds, it should feel increasingly pleasant. Dry on Friday, but with sunshine turning hazier through the day.
Mainly dry with clear spells across eastern areas, but showers will affect many parts of the west and south. Turning cold enough for a touch of frost in places.
Eastern areas starting off mostly dry, but showers will develop more widely through the day. Again there will be a risk of hail and thunder. Breezy in the south.
Cool and showery at first, but with a trend to drier, brighter conditions, with lighter winds for most. However, rain and strengthening winds will return to north-western areas on Friday.
Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days
Fine and settled for many to start April, but thicker cloud and outbreaks of rain in the northwest will ease as it returns slowly and erratically north-westwards. Through the weekend and into the following week we will likely see a build of pressure towards the east or northeast of the UK and low pressure staying to the west or south-west. This means we may see rain affecting western areas at times, but with many eastern, and perhaps northern parts staying mostly dry, although showers remain possible at times. After a fairly cool start, with overnight frosts, some warmer spells are likely, especially in the south and southeast, but this may ease off towards average with time.
Early indications suggest that the progression of frontal systems from the Atlantic may well remain somewhat limited as high pressure to the east or northeast of the UK looks to dominate. This brings the increasing chance of longer drier spells of weather, particularly across the north, with southern and south-western areas on balance seeing the greatest chance of rain or showers. Overall temperatures look to average around around normal, but with some warmer spells at times.
