UK Outlook for Sunday 9 Apr 2017 to Tuesday 18 Apr 2017:

High pressure is likely to dominate south-eastern parts of the UK during the start of the period with continuing dry and fine conditions by day and chilly nights leading to early fog patches. In contrast, the north-west could be increasingly cloudy with outbreaks of rain and strengthening winds. These more unsettled and cooler conditions are likely to spread slowly across the UK but with some uncertainty as to timings. Through mid week we are likely to see quite unsettled, and at times windier weather with bands of rain or showers perhaps affecting all parts for a time, with some brief drier interludes likely. The end of the period is very uncertain but milder conditions from the Atlantic may return, leading to temperatures recovering.
