UK forecast for the next 5 days

Some brightness, but outbreaks of rain for many. Milder.

Today:

A milder but rather cloudy day for most, with occasional rain almost anywhere. More persistent rain over west/northwest Scotland, this edging towards central Britain later. A few brighter interludes in the south/east, and the far northwest later.

Tonight:

Mild for many; further rain and low cloud in southern and central areas. Clearer but breezy weather should edge south across the northwest, into central parts by dawn.

Friday:

Some early rain in the southeast, with a further zone of rain, occasionally heavy, spreading eastwards across England and Wales. Much brighter weather following but showers for northwestern coasts.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

Showers or rain in the northwest, possibly thundery. More in the way of drier weather elsewhere; brightest towards the south and east. Generally mild, but windy, especially towards the northwest.

Issued at: 0500 on Thu 23 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.
