    Regional forecast for North West England

    Cold and frosty start, but a fine and sunny day.


    It will be a cold and frosty start with some patchy fog in places. However, these will slowly clear through the morning to give a fine day, with plenty of autumn sunshine. Maximum Temperature 13 °C.


    Cloud will thicken up through the evening with patchy light rain likely, especially over the hills. As a result, it will be a less cold night and frost free. Minimum Temperature 4 °C.


    Wednesday will then be a generally cloudy day, with occasional bright spells, but still with some rain over higher ground. It will be breezier but milder for all. Maximum Temperature 15 °C.

    Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

    Remaining breezy on Thursday perhaps with patchy rain or drizzle. Lighter winds thereafter with some rain on Friday, but generally drier and brighter on Saturday. Staying milder than of late.

    UK forecast for the next 5 days

    Damp and cloudy in the south. Mostly fine elsewhere.


    Patchy rain across Wales and southern England, locally heavy in south, will ease during the afternoon. Elsewhere, after a cold start, frost and fog will clear to leave sunny spells, however cloud and strengthening winds will reach the north-west later.


    Outbreaks of rain and strong winds will continue across Scotland, with some light rain affecting Northern Ireland. Otherwise, it will be cloudy but milder with fog developing in the south.


    Blustery showers across Scotland with gales over exposed northern parts. Elsewhere it'll stay largely dry with early fog lingering for some, but some brightness will develop where it'll feel milder.

    Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

    Staying changeable across Scotland and Northern Ireland with some rain and strong winds at times. However, England and Wales will remain largely dry and mild, with some fog in places.

    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Sunday 30 Oct 2016 to Tuesday 8 Nov 2016:

    For Sunday and Monday, high pressure remains established across the south, bringing a good deal of dry and quiet weather for many. However, some will see occasional mist and fog form overnight and this may well be slow to clear by day. Temperatures will be mostly above average, but with some cold nights in the south, perhaps with local frost. Meanwhile, the north of the UK is likely to be wetter and windier at times, more so further west. Confidence is quite low from Tuesday on, although the expectation is for colder weather with more widespread night frosts, and generally northerly or north-westerly winds over the UK. Indications suggest unsettled weather with showers and strong winds at times in the north, and generally drier weather with lighter winds further south.

    UK Outlook for Wednesday 9 Nov 2016 to Wednesday 23 Nov 2016:

    The outlook for mid November remains uncertain. Although spells of windier and stormier weather look to be less likely than normally expected at this time of year. At first, indications suggest northerly or north-westerly winds to predominate over the UK, leading to lower than average temperatures for many and a widespread risk of frosts. The expectation is also for windier more showery conditions in the north, with snow over some higher ground, and drier more settled weather in the south. Towards the end of the period confidence continues to be low, with the more likely scenario looking to be a continuation of the mainly, drier, settled weather, although there remains a possibility of a change towards milder more unsettled conditions.
