Issued: Monday 23rd February 2015
Duty forecasters: Simon Keeling & Captain Bob
It may be a rather non-descript start to April. A westerly flow bringing air from the Atlantic, and allowing for some bands of cloud and rain to spread eastwards.
Many southern areas will be drier, although some rain cannot be ruled out, and there will be a tendency for two or three day blocks of drier weather. Always more rain in Scotland, Northern Ireland and northwest England.
Hints for the middle to latter stages of the month are for more unsettled conditions to prevail. It may become wetter for all.
Towards the end of the month drier conditions may be returning once again, especially to the south.
There are some early indications that May could be dominated by higher pressure. It is early days, and confidence is low.
However, high pressure may be to the north of the country with an easterly flow bringing dry weather.
By the end of the month southern areas may be a little more unsettled with periods of rain at times, although the north is likely to be staying drier.
