UK forecast for the next 5 days

Some brightness, but outbreaks of rain for many. Milder.

Today:

A milder but rather cloudy day for most, with occasional rain almost anywhere. More persistent rain over west/northwest Scotland, this edging towards central Britain later. A few brighter interludes in the south/east, and the far northwest later.

Tonight:

Mild for many; further rain and low cloud in southern and central areas. Clearer but breezy weather should edge south across the northwest, into central parts by dawn.

Friday:

Some early rain in the southeast, with a further zone of rain, occasionally heavy, spreading eastwards across England and Wales. Much brighter weather following but showers for northwestern coasts.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

Showers or rain in the northwest, possibly thundery. More in the way of drier weather elsewhere; brightest towards the south and east. Generally mild, but windy, especially towards the northwest.

Issued at: 0500 on Thu 23 Oct 2014

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Tuesday 28 Oct 2014 to Thursday 6 Nov 2014:

A band of cloud and rain over the northwest is expected to move southeastwards across the UK on Tuesday, clearing the far southeast by Wednesday morning. Brighter conditions should follow, however there are likely to be some showers too. These may be heavy and thundery in the north where it will probably be windy with local gales. A north-south split looks most likely to develop thereafter. Windy and unsettled conditions are likely in the north, with the best of the drier weather in the south, although there may be some rain here at times. Temperatures will generally be near normal, although feeling cold in strong winds and rain. Pressure may build further over the south into the start of November, bringing a risk of overnight frost and fog.

UK Outlook for Thursday 6 Nov 2014 to Thursday 20 Nov 2014:

The main signal is for a continuation of a north-south split during the second week of November. During this period, the generally westerly flow is likely to bring spells of wet and windy weather, mostly affecting northern and some western areas, but perhaps reaching other areas as well interspersed with drier intervals. However southern and some eastern areas will probably see more in the way of drier and settled conditions increasing the likelihood of seeing some sunshine, but also the risk of frost, mist and fog overnight, the latter of which could be slow to clear. After this it looks like unsettled weather will spread to much of the UK. Daytime temperatures will probably be near or a little above normal, although feeling cooler during any wet and windy spells.
