Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Sunday 11 Oct 2015 to Tuesday 20 Oct 2015:

Initially it looks likely that western areas will be rather cloudy with rain or showers at times whereas further east it will be generally drier and brighter. However as we go through next week the most likely scenario will be for northern and southern areas to be unsettled at times with central and eastern Britain more likely to be drier and brighter. Then from the following weekend onwards there is currently much uncertainty but the latest indications are for rain or showers at times, mainly in the south and west, with the north and east more likely to be drier. Temperatures will probably be around or slightly below average, and in addition over the first couple of days there may be a risk of gales in the west.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 21 Oct 2015 to Wednesday 4 Nov 2015:

Things look very uncertain for the remainder of October and into early November, although there are likely to be further spells of rain or showers. Initially these remain most likely across southern and western parts, although there will probably be a gradual trend to more of a west east split. Western areas will therefore become more at risk of seeing the wettest and most unsettled conditions with the best of the drier, brighter weather most likely to turn up in the east and southeast. Temperatures will probably balance out close to or slightly below average, but with the possibility of some chilly nights in the more settled spells which could give rural frosts.
