Dry with best of brightness in west. Cloudier later.
Western Central and Tayside regions seeing best of brighter spells during morning. Cloud tending to increase from east through afternoon, but staying dry. Feeling significantly cooler along the east coast under the influence of the moderate to fresh southeast breezes. Maximum Temperature 15C.
Rather cloudy with some patchy light showers developing, though the bulk of outbreaks will be largely confined to the Perthshire hills. Staying mild. Winds light to moderate from the east. Minimum Temperature 6C.
Best weather again in the west 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 15C.
Settled and staying dry. Southeast winds backing northeast overnight Wednesday, increasing the sunshine for western, and to a less extent central, areas. Continuing significantly cooler on the coasts.
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.
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.
