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

Regional forecast for South West England

Generally cloudy with outbreaks of drizzle overnight and tomorrow.

This Evening and Tonight:

It will be rather cloudy and breezy overnight with some hill fog and outbreaks of drizzle spreading eastwards. Drier in parts of the east at first, with clear spells possible. The cloud and breeze will mean it stays mild overnight. Minimum Temperature 9C.

Thursday:

A breezy and largely cloudy day with outbreaks of drizzle. This will be most persistent on western facing upslopes, but will generally be light with some brighter spells possible too. Maximum Temperature 17C.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

Rain clears southeastwards through Friday with drier, brighter conditions and some sunny spells on Saturday following a chilly start. Cloudier and breezier Sunday with a little light rain possible.

Issued at: 1700 on Wed 22 Oct 2014

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Generally cloudy and mild, with some rain in the northwest.

This Evening and Tonight:

Rather cloudy and mild for most with occasional rain in places. This will be most persistent in the northwest, whilst drizzle spreads eastwards across southwestern areas. Generally drier in the east, with some clear spells. Fairly windy in the north.

Thursday:

Breezy and largely cloudy with some persistent rain in the west/northwest, and drizzle across the south. Although, there will be some brighter interludes in the east, and far northwest later.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

Rain across England and Wales on Friday, will clear southeast by early Saturday. Brighter conditions follow, although with occasional showers, heavy in the northwest. Windy, with gales in the north.

Issued at: 1700 on Wed 22 Oct 2014

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Monday 27 Oct 2014 to Wednesday 5 Nov 2014:

The south is likely to see settled conditions on Monday and Tuesday, with rain and strong winds continuing further north. A north-south split looks most likely to develop by the middle of next week. Windy and unsettled conditions are likely in the north and somewhat quieter, drier weather in the south, although there may be some rain here at times. Temperatures will generally be near normal, although feeling cold in the rain. By the end of October and into early November, the broad north-south split looks set to continue, with northern areas remaining changeable and at times unsettled. Further south, there are hints that pressure may rise further, increasing the potential for more prolonged drier periods with some sunshine, but with a greater risk of overnight and morning fog.

UK Outlook for Thursday 6 Nov 2014 to Thursday 20 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 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 seeing 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.
