UK forecast for the next 5 days

Dry and warm for many, but rain in the northwest.

Today:

A dry day across much of the country with warm sunny spells, especially in the south and east, although outbreaks of rain will continue in the far northwest. Winds will strengthen in the west, with rain edging slowly southeastwards later.

Tonight:

A dry end to the day for many, but cloud, rain and strong winds will continue to move southeastwards overnight, with clearer, showery conditions following into the northwest by dawn.

Saturday:

Rain in the southeast will be slow to clear. Elsewhere, plenty of dry, bright weather, but further rain and strong winds arriving into western areas later in the afternoon.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Rain over central areas gradually clearing to the southeast on Sunday, with cooler, showery weather following and continuing through Monday.Colder still, but showers easing a little on Tuesday. Windy.

Issued at: 0400 on Fri 31 Oct 2014

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Tuesday 4 Nov 2014 to Thursday 13 Nov 2014:

On Tuesday, a cool and showery north or northwesterly airstream will affect the UK, with showers most frequent in the northwest where they may fall as snow over hills. It will be windy at times too. Temperatures generally a little below average, and feeling cold in comparison to the recent very mild weather. Showers should gradually ease from around midweek with more in the way of brighter weather, and frost at night. Thereafter a return to more unsettled and windy weather from the west looks the most likely scenario, with spells of rain pushing northeastwards across the country interspersed by brighter, showery and colder days. Some particularly wet and windy weather is a possibility at times. Temperatures are likely to return to nearer normal for November.

UK Outlook for Friday 14 Nov 2014 to Friday 28 Nov 2014:

During this period, the generally west or southwesterly flow is likely to bring spells of wet and windy weather, especially to northern and western parts of the UK. However, southern and eastern areas may see some 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. Spells of unsettled weather are still likely across the south and east though. Daytime temperatures may well be near normal, although it will feel colder during any wet and windy spells.
