Outbreaks of rain continuing across western areas, but becoming drier over the far north for a time, and drier with perhaps some clear intervals in the east. Minimum Temperature 5C.

Issued at: 0400 on Sun 26 Oct 2014

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Very wet and windy northwest Scotland. Mostly fine elsewhere.

Today:

Heavy rain persists across northwest Scotland, bringing a risk of localised flooding. Generally dry and mild elsewhere with variable cloud and sunny spells, though patchy drizzle possible across Wales and exposed southwestern parts. Very windy with gales in the north.

Tonight:

The very wet and windy weather continues for northwest Scotland. Generally cloudy and windy across the north/west with occasional outbreaks of drizzle. Drier with clear spells in the southeast.

Monday:

Heavy rain continues across northwest Scotland. Mild elsewhere with some sunshine in the southeast, but rather cloudy in parts of the north/west with occasional drizzle. Windy across northern/western Britain.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

Wind and rain eases and moves south Tuesday, leaving cloud and occasional rain across the south Wednesday, whilst clearer, chillier weather follows further north. Turning wet and windy later Thursday.

Issued at: 0400 on Sun 26 Oct 2014

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Thursday 30 Oct 2014 to Saturday 8 Nov 2014:

Becoming generally cloudy across the UK, but staying dry with bright spells across southern and eastern parts on Thursday. Northern and western parts will become wetter with outbreaks of rain. The rain will likely become heavier and more persistent later that day. Winds also increase, becoming strong in the west, and gales may develop across the far northwest. A north-south split then looks most likely to dominate. The most wetter, windier conditions likely in the north and northwest; with gales, perhaps even severe gales in the far northwest, next weekend. The best of the drier weather likely in the south and southeast; although there is likely to be some rain here at times. Temperatures generally near normal, but perhaps falling slightly below average later with snow on Scottish mountains possible.

UK Outlook for Sunday 9 Nov 2014 to Sunday 23 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. 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 set to turn more changeable across the south and east. Daytime temperatures will probably be near or a little above normal, although feeling cooler during any wet and windy spells.
