    UK Outlook for Thursday 6 Nov 2014 to Saturday 15 Nov 2014:

    A mainly dry and cold start on Thursday and a frost likely, especially in the north. Some localised mist and fog patches are also likely and will be slow to clear in the east. Cloud and rain, locally heavy, is expected to erratically move eastwards through the day with brisk winds likely for many parts. The cloud and rain will continue to edge eastwards, clearing eastern parts through Friday. Thereafter, the unsettled and windy weather from the west looks to continue, 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 Sunday 16 Nov 2014 to Sunday 30 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.
