Confidence in the forecast for April is best described as being very low.
Current indications are for a reasonable start to the month with some sunny spells and largely fair, mild weather.
However, a breakdown to westerly winds is likely before the first third of the month is completed, this leading to a wet period through the middle part of the month (which encompasses the Easter period).
There are hints of more eastern and southern areas becoming drier and brighter for a time, and perhaps warm, but always tending to stay more unsettled to the west.
Rainfall is likely to be near normal for most, but just below normal in Scotland. Temperatures probably above average overall.
Once again there is lower confidence in the forecast for May.
Generally there is expected to be a fair mount of dry weather during the month, especially to the south. Most rainfall affecting western Scotland, northwest England and western Ireland.
is likely to be warm than normal, and it could be very warm at times in southern England.
