UK forecast for the next 5 days

Cloudy with showers in the northwest. Dry and bright elsewhere.


Northern Ireland, much of Scotland, and parts of northern England will be rather cloudy with occasional showers, and more persistent rain in the far northwest. Elsewhere, after a chilly start, fog will slowly clear, leaving plenty of sunny spells.


Away from the far northwest and Northern Ireland where it'll remain cloudy with some patchy rain it will be a dry, largely clear night with mist or fog patches forming.


The far northwest will remain fairly cloudy with further showers or longer spells of light rain. Elsewhere, apart from the odd shower it'll be mostly dry with some sunny spells.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Mostly dry with patchy cloud and sunny spells, but breezy and feeling cooler. Occasional rain across northern parts on Sunday clearing Monday, with showers expected in the east on Tuesday.

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Tuesday 13 Oct 2015 to Thursday 22 Oct 2015:

Settled conditions are expected to largely dominate at first, with the best of any sunshine across the northwest of the UK. The odd shower is possible though, mainly across eastern parts. Temperatures are likely to continue to be below average, especially in the south, where a brisk easterly wind is expected. During Wednesday cloud amounts are expected to increase across northwestern parts with rain perhaps developing later, before spreading southeast. Settled conditions are then expected to return into the weekend with temperatures recovering to nearer normal. From the weekend onwards confidence reduces with a probable trend for a more mobile pattern developing across the UK, from the north, with west or southwesterly winds bringing outbreaks of rain at times. Temperatures generally near normal.

UK Outlook for Friday 23 Oct 2015 to Friday 6 Nov 2015:

Things look very uncertain for the remainder of October and into early November, although currently the most probable trend is towards a unsettled, mobile pattern affecting the UK. West and northwestern areas are expected to be most at risk of seeing the wettest and most unsettled conditions, with the best of any drier weather in eastern parts.
