Scattered showers at first, mainly across Derbyshire, will gradually die away to leave a clear night. It will become chilly as the wind eases a little. Minimum Temperature 4C.

After a chilly but sunny start cloudy conditions will quickly arrive. Then outbreaks of rain spread east through the afternoon, especially across Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire. Staying breezy. Maximum Temperature 11C.

Issued at: 0500 on Tue 21 Oct 2014

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Rain clearing southeast, then sunny spells and squally showers. Gales.

Today:

Gales with severe gales around exposed coasts. The rain from overnight soon clears southeast, then colder conditions with squally showers and a risk of hail and thunder spread across the UK. Showers become wintry over the hills in the northwest.

Tonight:

Showers becoming more isolated overnight, with clear skies developing across much of the UK. Cold with a grass frost possible in places. Further rain in the far northwest by dawn.

Wednesday:

Becoming cloudy across the UK but with rain moving east across northern parts. Staying dry in the south. Milder than on Tuesday. Windy for all with gales in the north.

Issued at: 0500 on Tue 21 Oct 2014

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Saturday 25 Oct 2014 to Monday 3 Nov 2014:

Early rain across the southeast on Saturday clearing, then showers developing. These are likely to be most frequent in the northwest, where they will be wintry over the high ground. There will be fewer showers further south with some sunny spells developing. Strong winds, especially in the north, and temperatures near normal. This north south split is likely through the following week. There will be generally drier and brighter conditions in the south with a risk of a local frost and fog overnight. More unsettled conditions are likely in the north with outbreaks of rain and a risk of gales which are likely to be interspersed with colder, more showery spells, these possibly turning wintry over Scottish hills at times. The split in conditions will likely continue into November.

UK Outlook for Tuesday 4 Nov 2014 to Tuesday 18 Nov 2014:

The main signal is for a continuation of a north/south split during the first half of November. During this period, the generally westerly flow is likely to bring spells of wet and windy weather, interspersed with drier intervals. These should mostly affect northern and some western areas, but perhaps reaching other areas as well at times. However southern and some eastern areas will probably see more in the way of the drier and settled conditions. These drier intervals will bring some sunshine at times, but also the risk of frost, mist and fog overnight. Daytime temperatures are likely to be near or a little above normal, although feeling cooler during any wet and windy spells.
