Trough settled over UK. Mixed to unsettled conditions. Rain and showers. Average temperatures.

*5/5/19 - 11/5/19*
Trough remains. Mixed conditions. Most rain in north and west. Rain tending to be showery in east. Cool temperatures.

*12/5/19 - 18/5/19*
Mixed to unsettled through the week. Most rain to the north and west. Temperatures milder than average.

*19/5/19 - 25/5/19*
