UK Outlook for Monday 6 May 2019 to Wednesday 15 May 2019:

After a cold start with a widespread frost, Bank Holiday Monday is likely to be dry for most places with sunny spells, although the odd shower is possible. There is a small chance that far western and northern areas may see more changeable and windier conditions. During the day it will be rather cold for many, although it should feel pleasant in the sunshine in any sheltered spots. Thereafter, a change to more unsettled conditions is likely, perhaps bringing spells of wet and windy weather across southern and central areas at times. Brighter conditions could hold on in the far north, but there is still some uncertainty for now. Temperatures will probably vary around normal for the time of year.

UK Outlook for Thursday 16 May 2019 to Thursday 30 May 2019:

There is low confidence in developments for this period. There is a chance of some changeable conditions at first, but by the middle of the month there are indications that more settled weather could start to develop. This should bring periods of light winds and fine and dry weather, but with occasional interludes of cooler, wet and breezy weather. Temperatures will be near to the seasonal average but, as is usual for this time in Spring, we can expect some marked day to day regional variations.
