Dry weather will span the United Kingdom into this weekend, much to the delight for those with Mother's Day or other outdoor plans.
No brollies will be needed across the U.K. this weekend as high pressure settles overhead and blocks any storms from arriving.
Recent bouts of rain will be replaced by sunny spells and dry conditions.

Highs will range from 12-14 degrees Celsius (54-58 degrees Fahrenheit) on Saturday and Sunday. A few of the warmest locations could reach 16 C (60 F).
The air flowing in from the North Sea will keep the eastern coast of England on the lower end of this range. A fresh to strong breeze will hold AccuWeather RealFeel® temperatures to near 7 C (45 F) throughout the day on Saturday and Sunday.

A breeze will also make the air feel cooler than actual temperatures throughout the south of England.
Those headed outdoors in London on Saturday should not be fooled by the above-normal high of around 14 C (58 F) that is forecast. A moderate to fresh breeze will create RealFeel Temperatures more representative of typical late March highs.

Little wind will allow Northern Ireland and Scotland to fully enjoy the mild air. Temperatures in many communities will climb 4-6 C (5-10 F) above normal this weekend.
A lack of wind, however, could allow areas of fog to develop where there are enough breaks in the cloud at night.
High pressure should remain in control into early next week, further extending the dry spell.
