UK weather forecast for next week

According to the Met Office, it will be mostly dry through Tuesday but with a few showers in places, most likely in the south and east of the UK, with the brightest conditions in the west.

Throughout the rest of the week, high pressure is likely to dominate in the north with plenty of dry weather up north. Further south, it is likely to be a little more unsettled with a risk of some showers or longer spells of rain at times, heavy in places.

The weather service said: “Light winds are expected for most with breezy conditions possible at times in the south and along eastern coasts. Conditions are likely to become more settled and mainly dry across the whole of the UK as we move into early May.

“Temperatures likely to be average or slightly below average at times, with the potential of some rural frosts at times.”
