UK forecast for the next 5 days

Wet in northwestern Britain. Dry and warm in the southeast.

This Evening and Tonight:

It will remain rather cloudy and very mild, with the best of any clear spells in the east of the UK. Patchy rain will continue in some western areas, perhaps turning heavy and persistent over northwest Scotland.

Friday:

Dry across much of the country with warm sunny spells, especially in the south and east. Winds will strengthen in the west, with rain edging slowly form the northwest later.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

Rain in the northwest of the UK will continue southeastwards during the weekend. Cooler, showery weather will follow on Sunday afternoon and continue through Monday. It will be windy too.

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Tuesday 4 Nov 2014 to Thursday 13 Nov 2014:

On Tuesday, a cool and showery north or northwesterly airstream will affect the UK, with showers most frequent in the northwest where they may fall as snow over hills. It will be windy at times too. Temperatures generally a little below average, and feeling cold in comparison to the recent very mild weather. Showers should gradually ease from around midweek with more in the way of brighter weather, and frost at night. Thereafter a return to more unsettled and windy weather from the west looks the most likely scenario, with spells of rain pushing northeastwards across the country interspersed by brighter, showery and colder days. Some particularly wet and windy weather is a possibility at times. Temperatures are likely to return to nearer normal for November.

UK Outlook for Friday 14 Nov 2014 to Friday 28 Nov 2014:

During this period, the generally west or southwesterly flow is likely to bring spells of wet and windy weather, especially to northern and western parts of the UK. However, southern and eastern areas may see some 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. Spells of unsettled weather are still likely across the south and east though. Daytime temperatures may well be near normal, although it will feel colder during any wet and windy spells.
