The heavy, thundery showers of today packing gusty winds and hail, should die away through this evening. Beneath clear skies and fairly light winds thanks to a building high, it’s another cold late April night for all with patchy rural frost. Lows down to 2-3C in towns and cities, 1 to -2C in rural areas.

Saturday is looking good with plenty of cool sunshine but again, with less showers than today. Highs tomorrow will be cool at just 8-10C.

Sunday will see an area of rain push in and that will be followed by heavy, frequent showers. Winds will be strong with coastal gales. Cold feeling day with highs of only 8-10C, feeling cooler in the strong west wind.

It’s been a much colder day across particularly the Southeast, while it’s been much the same across the Midlands and North. Showers have been widespread, heavy and thundery today but these should die out through tonight with clear skies developing. Winds should keep the frost risk down but 3-5C will feel cold with a breeze.

Saturday will be another day of sunshine and showers with some heavy, thundery with hail. Highs only rise to between 8-11C.

Sunday will see wet and windy weather arrive from the NW, feeling cold with highs of 7-10C.


Heavy, frequent and blustery showers with some packing hail have been rattling across much of Wales today but tonight should see some calmer conditions once the sun goes down. Clear skies and relatively light winds for sheltered parts mean a frost tonight with lows near 0C, elsewhere nearer 3-5C.

Tomorrow will see more showers developing through the morning once the sun gradually warms the ground and the temp difference with height grows, increasing instability. Showers will become fewer in the north during the afternoon while it’s more active in the South. Highs tomorrow are disappointing at 8-11C.

Colder tomorrow night with a more widespread rural frost, lows of 3 to -2C.

Sunday will be more unsettled with an Atlantic system pushing in.
