    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Wednesday 26 Oct 2016 to Friday 4 Nov 2016:

    Mostly dry across England and Wales during Wednesday with bright or sunny spells, once any early mist and fog has cleared. Meanwhile, rain will arrive into the northwest, which will slowly move south-eastwards, weakening all the time. It will be cloudier with patchy rain across the south on Thursday, becoming brighter in the north. Thereafter, high pressure looks to become established across the south of the UK, with a good deal of fine and dry weather around. Meanwhile, low pressure will be influencing the weather across the far, where it will be wet and windy at times. Temperatures will probably be mostly above the average, but with some cold nights in the south, with frost and fog. Possibly turning colder as we go into early November.

    UK Outlook for Saturday 5 Nov 2016 to Saturday 19 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 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.
