Forecast Summary

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

Regional forecast for South West England

Cloud and rain clearing east, with brighter conditions following on.

Today:

Cloudy with outbreaks of locally heavy rain through the morning, but this should steadily pull away to the east. Brighter conditions will move into Cornwall and Devon from early afternoon, and should extend to most other parts by dusk. Maximum Temperature 16C.

Tonight:

Mainly dry with some clear spells, especially inland and more generally further east, allowing it to turn chilly in sheltered rural areas. A few coastal showers are possible. Minimum Temperature 6C.

Saturday:

Some sunny spells, especially east of high ground, but also the risk of a few fleeting showers. Generally on the mild side, but quite breezy around exposed coasts. Maximum Temperature 16C.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Often rather breezy and quite cloudy, but mainly dry on Sunday and Monday. Outbreaks of rain may arrive from the northwest later on Tuesday, but with winds falling light.

Issued at: 0500 on Fri 24 Oct 2014

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Rain clearing from the southeast. Blustery showers in the northwest.

Today:

Cloudy with bands of locally heavy rain across much of England and Wales, clearing erratically from the southeast by evening. Clearer conditions following on, but plenty of showers in the far northwest, where also very windy.

Tonight:

Frequent showers continuing across the northwest, rattling through on strong southwesterly winds. Elsewhere, mainly dry, with some clear spells, especially across central and eastern areas.

Saturday:

Showers, driven on by strong to gale force winds, will continue to affect western Scotland. Less windy and showery elsewhere, with the best of the sunshine across eastern areas.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Very wet and windy in the northwest on Sunday and Monday, with rain then spreading southeastwards on Tuesday. Drier further to the south, though some drizzly outbreaks are possible. Mild.

Issued at: 0500 on Fri 24 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 Friday 7 Nov 2014 to Friday 21 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.
