Warming up
Mainly settled

Duty forecaster: John Ejdowski

Cooler later

High pressure will be building down across much of the United Kingdom, and this will tend to give all parts of the country some fine, settled and warm weather for a change. As low pressure moves up from the south later, we could see it turning unsettled in the south with a brisk northeast wind developing.

Thursday 24/05/12
Rather cloudy across central, southern parts of England this morning with a few spots of rain. Brighter and a warm for the afternoon with a few showers across England along with some good sunny spells. Scotland and Northern Ireland should be fair and dry with sunny intervals. Expect highs of 20 to 23C.

Mostly cloudy across Wales and southwest England and also across Northern Ireland with a few spots of rain or scattered showers. The rest of the country looks fair, dry and warm with sunny intervals. Highs of 17 to 22C.


Saturday 26/05/12
Not as warm across the country today with the brisk northeast wind blowing. It'll be a dry day across Britain that eastern areas could see more the way of cloud with the best of the sunshine, perhaps in the west. Expect highs of 15 to 18C.


Sunday 27/05/12
We keep that brisk northeast wind today making it feel cool across eastern areas. Today there is a risk of some showers across Wales and southern parts of England with the rest of the country staying dry with some sunshine. Tonight there is a risk of some rain moving in across England from the east, although confidence is low. Maximum temperatures of 15 to 19C.

Monday 28/05/12
Models suggest a cloudy day across much of England and Wales with some rain, but once again confidence is rather low on this. Mainly dry across Scotland and Northern Ireland. Top temperatures of 13 to 16C.

Tuesday 29/05/12
At this point Tuesday looks to be mainly dry across England and Wales while there is a risk of showers across Scotland. Expect highs of 15 to 19C.
