UK weather forecast – Spring to finally kick with 15C ‘calmest weekend of year’, Met Office says

THE UK is finally due some calm weather after months of floods and rain according to the Met Office.

After a few days of damp and drizzle this Mothering Sunday weekend “will be the calmest of the year”.

Thursday will see a band of rain sweep south from Manchester

The week to come will be pretty mild all round and mostly cloudy, with erratic rain heading south from Wednesday morning and petering out by Friday.

Tomorrow will see rain in the midlands and a nice dry spell for the south and Scotland, in a classic soggy sandwich.

We are likely to see a centimetre of rain at most in the midlands and a little light drizzle everywhere else.

Expect a grey and damp Thursday as the rain leans south under a fair bit of cloud cover, getting increasingly erratic as it does so.

This Saturday afternoon will be sunny for most of us

Those north of the band of rain can finally expect a little sun as it slowly slips down the spine of England.

That band of rain and cloud will keep things cool and a little damp for most of us as we head into the weekend.

Temperature-wise we’re looking at some frosty nights, particularly in the north, and a bit of wind whipping around the south coast that will make it feel a bit nippy all round.

A Met Office spokesman said: “Temperatures will be a degree or two below average for this time of year and it will struggle to climb past 11C in most places, so it will still be a bit chilly.”

This weekend is going to be the blissful definition of mild spring weather as we head on to Mothers Day.

Expect fine sunshine and the calmest weather we have had all year, and a nice warming high of 14C in some places.
