Forecast Summary

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

Regional forecast for Wales

Variable cloud amounts and some bright or sunny spells tomorrow.

This Evening and Tonight:

Variable amounts of cloud and some isolated showers across western coasts and hills. Clearer skies and lighter winds in the east will allow it to turn fairly chilly in some sheltered rural areas with mist patches possible. Minimum Temperature 5C.

Saturday:

Breezy with variable amounts of cloud and some sunny spells, especially to the east of high ground. However there will be a few showers too, these mainly in the west. Maximum Temperature 15C.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Breezy, mild and often rather cloudy with a few showers on Sunday and Monday. More organised rain will arrive from the northwest on Tuesday, but with winds falling lighter.

Issued at: 1700 on Fri 24 Oct 2014

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Rain clearing the southeast. Windy and showery in the northwest.

This Evening and Tonight:

Rain will slowly clear southeastern England this evening. A dry night will follow, bar the odd coastal shower, with clear spells allowing the odd fog patch to form. Windy in the northwest with coastal gales and frequent showers.

Saturday:

Frequent showers and strong winds will continue across western Scotland with severe gales affecting coastal areas. 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 Sunday and Monday. Rain pushes southeastwards on Tuesday with cooler, brighter conditions following. Drier and mild further south, but with isolated drizzly outbreaks.

Issued at: 1700 on Fri 24 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.
