Met Office - Longer Range Forecast, for the entire UK   Met Office.:
........... Tuesday 11 May - Thursday 20 May
A mixture of sunny spells and scattered showers are likely on Tuesday, with some of the showers being locally heavy and possibly thundery. The most frequent downpours will be in the north and west, and a more organised band of rain may approach from the southwest later in the day. Southern parts of the country could well receive rain on Wednesday and Thursday, while conditions further north could be clearer but showery. The unsettled theme continues through the remainder of this period, with longer spells of rain and showers in between. It's likely to be breezy at times; especially around coastal areas, where gales may occur. Temperatures will be near to or slightly below average, though overnight frosts becoming unlikely.
Thursday 20 May - Thursday 3 Jun
Confidence remains low for this period with weather conditions typical for Spring. A mixture of sunny spells and showers is likely, especially at first, with areas in the south experiencing the most settled and dry conditions through this period. Towards the north and northwest there is an increased chance of unsettled weather as longer spells of rain and strong winds arrive from the Atlantic at times. Temperatures likely to be around average. ..................................
