UK Outlook for Tuesday 30 Apr 2013 to Tuesday 14 May 2013:

Current indications suggest fairly typical spring weather will persist into May. This would leave temperatures often nearer average, though given colder than average seas, coastal areas may be quite chilly whenever sea breezes occur, whereas inland it will become warm at times. Meanwhile, during any settled spells the risk of overnight ground frost is, perhaps, slightly greater than average, but if it does occur it should be patchy rather than widespread. Unsettled, changeable conditions probably still affecting some northern and western parts early in this forecast period. Otherwise, in the absence of any strong signals for trends in precipitation, nearer average rainfall amounts are considered most likely.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 1 May 2013 to Wednesday 15 May 2013:

 

Current indications suggest fairly typical spring weather will continue into the start of May. In the absence of any strong signals for trends in precipitation through the start of the month, it is most likely that there there will be periods of rain or showers, particularly across northern and western parts, but also drier and brighter interludes, especially in the south and east. Temperatures will be generally near average, if not slightly below, particularly across coastal areas, but it may turn warmer, especially inland, in any sunnier spells. During the latter part of the period, there are suggestions that the weather turns more settled across the UK, with below average rainfall and more sunshine. As a result, temperatures are likely to recover somewhat, and it may turn warm in places.

UK Outlook for Friday 3 May 2013 to Friday 17 May 2013:

Current indications suggest unsettled weather will continue into the first week of May. In the absence of any strong signals for trends in precipitation through the start of the month, it is most likely that there will be periods of rain or showers, particularly across northern parts, but also drier and brighter interludes, especially in the south. Temperatures will be generally near average, if not slightly below.

UK Outlook for Saturday 4 May 2013 to Saturday 18 May 2013:

 

There are signs that the relatively cool and unsettled conditions thought most likely to affect the UK during late April will give way to a somewhat more settled, easterly weather type during early May which will then probably prevail into the middle of the month. Given that sea surface temperatures in the North Sea are currently well below normal this would leave eastern and northeastern areas colder than average, whilst daytime temperatures to the west and northwest would most likely be above average. Meanwhile, a more settled type developing also increases the chances of below average rainfall amounts, especially in western and northwestern regions.

UK Outlook for Monday 6 May 2013 to Monday 20 May 2013:

There are signs that the relatively cool and unsettled conditions will have given way to somewhat more settled weather around or just before the start of this period, with an easterly weather type during early May which will then probably prevail into the middle of the month. Given that the North Sea is colder than normal for spring, this would leave eastern and northeastern areas colder than average, whilst daytime temperatures to the west and northwest would most likely be above average. Meanwhile, a more settled type developing also increases the chances of below average rainfall amounts, especially in western and northwestern regions, with near or above average sunshine.

I reckon May will be a strong month weatherwise. All signs looking good.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 8 May 2013 to Wednesday 22 May 2013:

 

The relatively cool and unsettled conditions should have given way to somewhat more settled weather by the start of this period, with an easterly weather type set to prevail into the middle of the month. Given that the North Sea is colder than normal for spring, this will leave eastern and northeastern coasts colder than average. Further inland daytime temperatures will most likely be around average, and perhaps a little above in the west and northwest. Meanwhile, more settled weather also increases the chances of below average rainfall amounts, especially in western and northwestern regions, with near or above average sunshine. Towards the end of the period it may turn slightly less settled with more rain and showers around.

It should be generally settled with an easterly weather type thought most likely to prevail into the middle of the month.

Meanwhile, more settled weather also increases the chances of below average rainfall amounts, especially in western and northwestern regions, with near or above average sunshine. Towards the end of the period it may turn slightly less settled with an increased chance of rain and showers, temperatures then close to or just below average for the time of year.

Updated this as Stewart hasn't done it

 

UK Outlook for Saturday 11 May 2013 to Saturday 25 May 2013:

 

The middle of May is most likely to see dry and settled conditions prevail across much of the UK. However, given that the North Sea is expected to be colder than normal for May, this will leave eastern coasts colder than average. Further inland, daytime temperatures will most likely be around or just below average, but perhaps a little above in the west in any prolonged spells of sunshine. Towards the end of the period it may well turn more unsettled with an increased chance of rain and showers, with temperatures still rather cold for May.

At least those of us in the West will get around too seeing some warmth and sunshine, for a time at least.

UK Outlook for Monday 13 May 2013 to Monday 27 May 2013:

Probably a good deal of dry and bright weather overall, but some unsettled spells perhaps particularly later in the month. Winds will often be from the northeast and given that the North Sea is expected to be colder than normal for May, this will leave eastern coasts colder than average. Away from coasts, daytime temperatures will most likely be around or just below average, but perhaps a little above in any prolonged spells of sunshine.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 15 May 2013 to Wednesday 29 May 2013:

Probably a good deal of dry and bright weather overall, although a risk of slightly more unsettled, showery conditions is signalled towards the start of the period. Given that the North Sea is expected to be colder than normal for May, this will leave many eastern coastal regions cooler than average. Away from coasts, daytime temperatures will most likely recover towards average or slightly above, and it should feel warm in any prolonged spells of sunshine.

UK Outlook for Friday 17 May 2013 to Friday 31 May 2013:

Indications are that conditions will start rather unsettled for many parts of the UK, with some rain at times, and temperatures generally below average for the time of year. For much of the rest of the period, probably a good deal of dry and bright weather overall, interspersed with some rain or showers at times, with the most unsettled conditions generally towards the northwest of the UK. Temperatures are likely to remain cooler than average across the UK, although given the time of year, with any prolonged sunshine it should feel pleasantly warm away from the coast.
