Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Wednesday 2 Nov 2016 to Friday 11 Nov 2016:

Cloud and rain may be slow to clear from southern parts of the UK at first on Wednesday. However, as this clears away to the south we will see a colder northerly airflow becoming established across the UK. This will bring a mixture of sunshine and scattered showers, particularly across the north and east on Wednesday. Feeling cold in the brisk northerly wind around windward coasts and hills. Chilly by night, with the risk of frost in places. Meanwhile, we'll see cloud and patchy rain edging into the far northwest on Thursday. Thereafter, high pressure seems likely to be situated to the west of the UK, bringing generally settled weather for many, although unsettled conditions edging in from the northwest at times. Temperatures are likely to be below average.

UK Outlook for Saturday 12 Nov 2016 to Saturday 26 Nov 2016:

The outlook for mid November remains uncertain, however spells of windier and stormier weather look to be less likely than would normally be expected at this time of year. Indications suggest that at first northerly or north-westerly winds are likely to predominate over the UK, leading to lower than average temperatures for many and a widespread risk of frosts. The expectation is for windier and more showery conditions to be possible in the north, perhaps with snow over some higher ground, with drier, more settled weather in the south. Towards the end of the period confidence continues to be low, with the most likely scenario looking to be a continuation of the mainly drier, settled weather, although there is a signal for below average temperatures to continue.
