Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Monday 26 Sep 2016 to Wednesday 5 Oct 2016:

Monday will see sunshine and showers, heavy and thundery in places. Wet and windy weather is likely to spread into western parts later, moving east through Tuesday, with sunshine and showers following. Thereafter the unsettled conditions look most likely to continue, with spells of rain interspersed with drier and brighter interludes and showers. Northwestern parts should see the wettest and windiest weather with a risk of gales, whereas southeastern parts should see the best of the drier and brighter weather, though even here rain and brisk winds look likely at times. There is a chance of a more settled spell as we move into October, mainly across the south, but confidence in this is currently low. Temperatures around normal for the time of year, but with some chilly nights possible.

UK Outlook for Thursday 6 Oct 2016 to Thursday 20 Oct 2016:

There is currently very low confidence in the details through October, however the most probable scenario is for a continuation of changeable weather. Bands of rain are likely to cross the country with stronger winds at times, these intermixed with some drier episodes. Northwestern parts should see the wettest weather and stronger winds, with southeastern parts favoured for the best of the drier weather. That said, there is a chance that quieter periods of weather may develop across much the UK at times. Temperatures probably averaging out near normal, though during any colder spells overnight frosts becoming increasingly likely, mainly in the north.
