Moray bright, quite warm. Cloudier in east, south, but dry.


Moray, and to a lesser extent western Aberdeenshire, will be best favoured, warm and occasionally sunny. Elsewhere rather cloudy particularly during the afternoon. Feeling significantly cooler along the east coast under the influence of the moderate to fresh southeast breezes. Maximum Temperature 16C.


Clear spells best in Moray, particularly during the evening. Cloudier skies elsewhere, occasionally thickening to bring some patchy light rain, though this will be mainly confined to the hills. Minimum Temperature 6C.


Best weather again in Moray with warm sunshine and light winds. Cloudier, cooler across east with a chance of some light drizzly showers at first, mainly confined to hills. Maximum Temperature 16C.

Outlook for Wednesday to Friday

Settled with most staying dry. Southeast winds backing northeast overnight Wednesday, which transfers the best of the sunshine and warmest weather south towards Braemar. Significantly cooler on coasts.

UK Outlook for Friday 5 May 2017 to Sunday 14 May 2017

This period will begin mostly dry and fine with the best of the bright or sunny weather likely to be across the west and north-west. The far south may see some showers or longer spells of rain at times and it will continue to be fairly breezy, especially on exposed eastern coasts. Temperatures will be close to normal and it will feel warm in any sunshine, but along the east coast it will be rather cool. Thereafter, it is likely to turn cooler more widely for a time with the best of the dry and bright weather persisting in the west and a risk overnight frost in the north. However, by the end of the period it could gradually turn more unsettled and milder from the southwest.

UK Outlook for Monday 15 May 2017 to Monday 29 May 2017

As we head into the middle of May, it is more likely that drier than average conditions will continue. However there remains the possibility of some occasional wetter interludes, especially in the south and west. After a fairly cold start, temperatures are likely to become warmer with the chance that they could become very warm at times, particularly later in the month.
