Gavins Five Day Forecast (22.5.13)
The forecast models have been all over the place in recent days, but this morning we do seem have got a resolution with the first part of the weekend not looking too bad, while Bank Holiday Monday may be much more unsettled. Before we get to that, though, we're in for a strong and very cold (for the time of year) northerly wind with heavy showers and longer spells of rain.
We're still rather cloudy on Wednesday, but skies should brighten from the north as the northerly wind freshens. This wind will feed in sunshine and showers to the north and east of Scotland and north-east England. Temps, 8-15c.
Overnight, showers will will persist around north and east facing coasts, becoming wintry to low levels across northern Scotland. The rest of the country will stay dry with clear spells increasing. A strong a very cold northerly wind. Temps, 1-7c.
We're between high pressure to the west and low pressure to the east on Thursday with a strong northerly wind blasting down across the the country.
Away from northern and eastern coasts, where we'll have showers from the word go, most places will get off to a dry and bright start with decent sunny spells. Heavy showers will develop widely through the day. Some with hail and thunder. Wintry showers likely for Northern England and Scotland, especially, but not exclusively over high ground. Almost anyone could see a few flakes of wet sleet or snow in the heaviest showers tomorrow.
Showers will merge into longer spells of rain on the east coast later. The northerly wind making it feel very cold. Temps, 5-12c.
We've got a deep area of low pressure off the east coast of south-east England on Friday.
East Anglia, the East Midland, central, southern and south-east England will have a strong northerly wind with heavy rain slowly pulling back into the north sea later. Wales and Northern England having sunshine and showers with Scotland and Northern Ireland mostly dry with sunny spells. Temps, just 7-8c in the wind and rain across the south-east. 11-14c elsewhere.
The low pressure should pull away to the east on Friday night leaving dry and clear. It will become very cold with the risk of a widespread ground as temps get dangerously close to 0c.
A ridge of high pressure builds in on Saturday.
Saturday may well be the best day of the weekend with long bright or sunny spells and almost universally dry weather as well. Temps recovering to 12-17c after a cold start.
Low pressure threatens the east coast on again on Sunday, so cloud and showery rain like down the eastern side through Sunday with a risk of showers breaking out elsewhere, though also quite a lot of dry weather with sunny spells. Temps, 13-18c.
Low pressure is moving in off the Atlantic on Bank Holiday Monday with cloud and rain, driven on by a strong wind, moving across the country. The east may stay dry until evening. Temps, 11-16c.
Summary: Cold and windy with showers or longer spells of rain. Dry and bright to start the weekend, becoming wet and windy by Bank Holiday Monday
