    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Tuesday 1 Nov 2016 to Thursday 10 Nov 2016:

    It will be settled in the south at first, with a good deal of fine and dry weather but with overnight patchy fog and chilly nights are likely. Meanwhile, the north of the UK is likely to be wetter and windier at times, more so further west. The rain in the north will probably move southwards by midweek, although it'll be lighter in the south, especially in the southeast. Colder air will then move in behind this from the northwest, bringing showers that may be wintry over high ground in the north. There'll be more widespread night frosts, and generally northerly or north-westerly winds over the UK, with generally drier and brighter weather and lighter winds further south.

    UK Outlook for Friday 11 Nov 2016 to Friday 25 Nov 2016:

    The outlook for mid November remains uncertain however spells of windier and stormier weather look to be less likely than would normally be expected at this time of year. Indications suggest that at first northerly or north-westerly winds are likely to predominate over the UK, leading to lower than average temperatures for many and a widespread risk of frosts. The expectation is for windier and more showery conditions to be possible in the north, perhaps with snow over some higher ground, with drier, more settled weather in the south. Towards the end of the period confidence continues to be low, with the most likely scenario looking to be a continuation of the mainly drier, settled weather, although there is a signal for below average temperatures to continue.
