Forecast Summary

  • Regional
  • UK 5 days
  • UK 6-30 days

Regional forecast for South West England

Bright, breezy and mostly dry today.

Today:

Any early isolated patches fog will soon clear to become a bright and breezy day with variable cloud and sunny spells. It will stay dry for most, but there may still be the odd spot of rain. Maximum Temperature 15C.

Tonight:

Remaining breezy and mostly dry with some clear spells at first. It should turn cloudier through the early hours with some hill fog on the moors and some patchy drizzle. Minimum Temperature 8C.

Sunday:

Rather cloudy at times, with patchy outbreaks of drizzle. However some places will stay dry, with some bright spells. Windy around the coast, breezy elsewhere. Maximum Temperature 16C.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

Breezy Monday, with patchy rain mainly affecting the west, brighter and drier in the east. Winds ease Tuesday as cloud and patchy rain spreads southwards and persists into Wednesday.

Issued at: 0500 on Sat 25 Oct 2014

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Windy with frequent showers northwest Scotland. Mostly fine elsewhere.

Today:

Frequent showers will push across northwest Scotland, often heavy. It will be windy here too, with coastal severe gales. Variable cloud and sunny spells elsewhere, with a few showers, these mainly in the west.

Tonight:

Persistent heavy rain will arrive in northwest Scotland. Generally dry elsewhere, but some patchy rain/drizzle in the west. Windy in the north, with severe gales continuing across northwest Scotland.

Sunday:

The very wet and windy weather continues across the northwest. Generally windy elsewhere but much drier and brighter, particularly in the east, with some patchy drizzle in the west.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

Wet and windy northwest Monday, drier elsewhere. Wind and rain eases and moves south Tuesday, giving cloud and drizzle for south Britain Wednesday. Drier, chillier weather follows further north.

Issued at: 0500 on Sat 25 Oct 2014

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Wednesday 29 Oct 2014 to Friday 7 Nov 2014:

A slow moving band of rain over the central parts on Wednesday is expected to slowly weaken. To the north, largely fine with sunny spells after a chilly start. Dull, damp and mild to the south with occasional drizzle. Brighter across southern parts on Thursday with sunny spells. However, rain and strong winds are likely to extend into northwestern areas, before reaching central parts by the end of the day. A north-south split looks most likely to predominate thereafter with the most frequent bouts of wind and rain likely in the north and northwest, with the best of the drier weather in the south and southeast; although there is likely to be some rain here at times. Temperatures generally near normal, although feeling cold in strong winds and rain.

UK Outlook for Saturday 8 Nov 2014 to Saturday 22 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, this 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 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.
