    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Thursday 27 Oct 2016 to Saturday 5 Nov 2016:

    A north-west, south-east split is likely for Thursday with light winds, dry weather and overnight mist and fog in the south-east. The north-west will be wetter, windier with some bright interludes and a risk of gales at times. However, many places becoming settled later on Friday. High pressure then looks to become established across the south for a time, with a good deal of dry and quiet weather around, with overnight mist and fog slow to clear by day. Meanwhile, the north-west could be be wet and windy at times. Temperatures will probably be mostly above the average, but with some cold nights in the south, with local frost. Possibly turning colder as we go into early November as the high moves north-westwards bringing a north-westerly flow for many.

    UK Outlook for Sunday 6 Nov 2016 to Sunday 20 Nov 2016:

    There is a lot of uncertainty with regard to this part of the forecast. At first at least it looks likely that the weather pattern will remain quite blocked, meaning that it will be slow to change and probably a stay a bit drier than normal. With this we are also less likely to see strong winds and the typical occasional stormy conditions that we usually see during the autumn. Given the time of year, and the predominance of a blocked pattern, temperatures may be on the cold side of normal. Later in November we may start to see more unsettled, changeable and sometimes windy weather again, but mainly in the northwest.
