A beautiful start to Saturday and continuing dry on Saturday afternoon with plenty of sunshine, best sun and temperatures for the Isle of Man and more western areas. Keswick and Carlisle may get up to 16c 61f today.

A lovely Saturday evening in store, but temperatures will drop off quickly once the sun goes down, so turning chilly.


Clearest skies further west with a widespread grass and ground frost as well as pockets of air frost. Rural lows get down as far as freezing or just below.


Similar to Saturday, best of any sunshine in the west with unbroken sunshine and blue skies across the Isle of Man in the morning. The further east you go, the more cloud you will see, still good sunny spells though.Throughout Sunday afternoon, still beautiful through Cumbria and across the Isle of Man. Cloudier further east with thicker cloud pushing in across the south of the region as a system tries to move up from the south. It will stay dry however during daylight hours.Temperatures best in the west, through Carlisle and Keswick, well above average at 17c 63f... average values for the time of year are nearer 10-11c for the north of England!


Low pressure system pushes up from the south so we will probably see some rain, but there is some uncertainty still at present as to how far north this system gets. It will probably settle in a line from North Wales across to Lincolnshire before retreating southwards again. Outbreaks of rain are likely through the south of the region.

A change is afoot on Bank Holiday Monday. Turning much more unsettled with showers or longer spells of rain. Alot breezier than of late. Still some bright or sunny spells around, but a marked change to cloudier, wetter weather.


Quite an organised band of rain coming across then low after low taking us into a more unsettled spell.
