Forecast Summary

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

Regional forecast for North West England

Early cloud and rain clearing southeastwards. Brighter later.

Today:

Cloudy, with outbreaks of rain at first, especially across southern counties. Gradually brightening up from the northwest through the afternoon, although a few passing showers are likely. Fairly breezy in the north. Maximum Temperature 14C.

Tonight:

Remaining fairly breezy with variable amounts of cloud and just the odd shower possible. A better chance of more prolonged clear spells across southern counties. Minimum Temperature 6C.

Saturday:

A mixture of some sunny spells, but also the risk of a few showers. Another fairly mild day, but tempered by brisk southwesterly winds. Maximum Temperature 14C.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Windy with occasional bright spells and showers on Sunday and Monday. More persistent rain will arrive from the northwest on Tuesday, but winds should ease.

Issued at: 0500 on Fri 24 Oct 2014

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Rain clearing from the southeast. Blustery showers in the northwest.

Today:

Cloudy with bands of locally heavy rain across much of England and Wales, clearing erratically from the southeast by evening. Clearer conditions following on, but plenty of showers in the far northwest, where also very windy.

Tonight:

Frequent showers continuing across the northwest, rattling through on strong southwesterly winds. Elsewhere, mainly dry, with some clear spells, especially across central and eastern areas.

Saturday:

Showers, driven on by strong to gale force winds, will continue to affect western Scotland. 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 on Sunday and Monday, with rain then spreading southeastwards on Tuesday. Drier further to the south, though some drizzly outbreaks are possible. Mild.

Issued at: 0500 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 Friday 7 Nov 2014 to Friday 21 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.
