UK forecast for the next 5 days

Rain in the south today. Mostly dry and bright elsewhere.


Cloud and outbreaks of rain across southern England and south Wales today. Meanwhile, there'll be some heavy, prolonged and thundery showers following into southwest England. Elsewhere, it'll be brighter with showers across eastern parts. Less windy than yesterday.


Cloudy with further showers across southern parts of England and Wales, also across eastern Scotland and northeast England. Dry with clear spells elsewhere, with frost and fog forming in places.


Showers in the far southwest at first, these easing. Elsewhere, mostly dry with sunny spells, once early mist and fog clears. Rain and strengthening winds into far northwest later.

Outlook for Wednesday to Friday:

We will see a change in the weather from midweek onwards, with cloud, rain and windy conditions across northern parts, but staying mostly dry in the south. Becoming milder.

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Saturday 29 Oct 2016 to Monday 7 Nov 2016:

High pressure will remain established across the south through the weekend, bringing a good deal of dry and quiet weather for many. However, some will see occasional mist and fog form overnight and this may well be slow to clear by day. Temperatures will be mostly above average, but with some cold nights in the south, perhaps with local frost. Meanwhile, the north of the UK is likely to be wetter and windier at times, more so further west. From Monday onwards the expectation is generally for colder weather with more widespread night frosts, and generally northerly or north-westerly winds over the UK. Indications suggest unsettled weather with showers and strong winds in the north, and generally drier weather with lighter winds further south.

UK Outlook for Tuesday 8 Nov 2016 to Tuesday 22 Nov 2016:

The outlook for mid November remains uncertain. At first indications suggest northerly or north-westerly winds to predominate over the UK, leading to lower than average temperatures for many and a widespread risk of frosts. The expectation is also for more unsettled, showery conditions in the north, perhaps with strong winds, and drier more settled weather in the south. Towards the end of the period confidence is low, although signals suggest a change from more settled conditions towards milder and more unsettled weather at some point.
