Regional forecast for South West England

Generally cloudy with isolated showers, some sunny spells developing later.

This Evening and Tonight:

There will continue to be generally large amounts of cloud, with the odd spot of rain or drizzle, mainly across the hills. This leading to another fairly mild night, though some clearer spells are likely with localised fog patches possible. Minimum Temperature 8C.

Thursday:

The odd shower is likely to develop during the day but the cloud should break to allow some warm sunny spells for many, especially later in the afternoon. Maximum Temperature 20C.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

Friday, largely dry with some brightness. Winds strengthening Friday night, as a band of locally heavy rain moves southeastwards before clearing Saturday. Cooler and clearer conditions following, with some showers.

Issued at: 1700 on Wed 01 Oct 2014

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Clear chilly night in the north, cloudy and milder elsewhere.

This Evening and Tonight:

A cloudy and mild night across southern England and Wales. Breezy with some showers for northwest Scotland. Elsewhere, clear periods and light winds resulting in a cold night with rural grass frosts and localised mist or fog patches possible.

Thursday:

After a cold start in northern areas, mostly dry with sunny spells. Southwesterly winds strengthening with gales in northwest Scotland. Cloudier, warmer elsewhere. Isolated showers in south, but mostly dry.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

Friday, wet and windy conditions across Scotland and Northern Ireland, moving southeastwards during Saturday and clearing southeast England later. Cooler, clearer conditions following, with frequent showers in west. Remaining breezy.

Issued at: 1700 on Wed 01 Oct 2014

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Monday 6 Oct 2014 to Wednesday 15 Oct 2014:

The trend for most places through next week will be generally unsettled with showers or longer spells of rain, which are likely to be heavy at times, mainly across western and northern parts. There are also likely to be some drier and brighter interludes in between. Breezy at times, with a risk of gales in the north and west. Temperatures generally on the cool side, especially in the wet and windy spells. There will be a risk of local frost and fog patches developing where clear skies prevail and winds fall light during the nights, particularly across northern parts. Thereafter the unsettled conditions are likely to continue across most areas. However, it is possible that later in the period eastern and southeastern may become increasingly drier and brighter.

UK Outlook for Thursday 16 Oct 2014 to Thursday 30 Oct 2014:

Current indications now suggest that generally unsettled conditions are likely to affect many areas of the UK during this period, with spells of wet and windy weather. However these are likely to be interspersed with drier and clearer interludes, which will also bring an increasing risk of overnight frosts and fog patches, especially across northern parts. Daytime temperatures generally close to the seasonal average.
