Met Office forecast for the UK from next Friday:
UK Outlook for Friday 2 May 2014 to Sunday 11 May 2014:
Much colder than recent weeks to start with, with a risk of widespread and locally sharp overnight frosts, particularly on Friday night. Also a risk of a few wintry showers, chiefly to high ground in the northeast. Then a fine, largely dry interlude with winds easing for most places over the weekend, before more unsettled weather arrives into the northwest for the new working week. This is expected to gradually move southeastwards, though its progress remains uncertain, with southern areas staying dry for much of the week. As such, the frost risk should gradually reduce from the north as the week progresses. Thereafter, most likely a more unsettled look, particularly for western and northern areas, with near average temperatures, but a risk of colder interludes affecting the north at times.
UK Outlook for Monday 12 May 2014 to Monday 26 May 2014:
Conditions are most probable to be fairly typical for the time of year with no strong signal for any particular weather type to dominate throughout the period. There are likely to be periods of fine and dry weather, interspersed with more unsettled spells with some rain or showers. By day temperatures are most likely to be near average, which at this time of year would leave conditions feeling pleasant in sunshine when winds are light.
