Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Tuesday 4 Oct 2016 to Thursday 13 Oct 2016:

Dry and bright through the middle part of the week in the east and south, however windy and cloudy across northern and western parts with outbreaks of rain, perhaps turning heavy and persistent. Through the remainder of the period, changeable conditions are likely in the northwest with stronger winds and showers or longer spells of rain, interspersed with drier, brighter periods. Eastern and southeastern parts should see more prolonged drier and brighter spells, though even here some rain is possible at times, but mostly light. Temperatures generally above normal in the east and southeast, with a warm feel at times. In the northwest temperatures will probably be a little above average, but in the wind and rain it will feel quite cool.

UK Outlook for Friday 14 Oct 2016 to Friday 28 Oct 2016:

There is currently low confidence for the forecast during the second half of October, however the most likely scenario is for changeable conditions to dominate across most parts. The north and northwest are likely to see the most unsettled weather, with strong winds and showers or longer spells of rain, intermixed with some drier interludes. Further south and southeast there is a greater likelihood of drier, brighter weather with a low possibility of more prolonged settled spells here. Temperatures will vary through the period, but probably averaging out slightly above normal for the time of year, though with an increasing risk of overnight frost in the more settled spells, especially in the north.
