    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.
