This is the latest outlook for the next four weeks from the Japanese Met Agency the JMA. It is not meant to be a forecast but a general outlook. I have added the 3 images together and rotated them and added a red line so you can see the UK. Blue colours are low pressure area’s and oranges high pressure area’s.

Week 1 11th April to 17th.

High pressure is in control of our weather to bring mainly dry conditions with temperatures slightly below what you would expect for the middle of April due to an easterly air flow.

Week 2 18th to 24th.

High pressure looks like remaining in place to bring mainly a dry period but it looks like we may see temperature slightly above average. This could be a better outlook for the Easter holiday.

Week 3-4 25th April to 8th May.

This is a two week period with high pressure over most of the UK stretching westwards over Ireland and over the mid Atlantic. This would bring mainly dry conditions with temperatures around average if not 1 or 2 degrees above average for early May.


For the past two weeks the JMA have picked up well on high pressure with cooler temperatures and again they have continued high pressure theme, maybe we will see some more spring link temperatures the last third of April and into early May.
