    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Wednesday 14 Oct 2015 to Friday 23 Oct 2015:

    Settled and mostly dry conditions are expected to dominate across the UK at first, with the sunniest weather expected across the west of the UK. Some isolated showers are possible however, and these are most likely across eastern parts. Temperatures are likely to be below average, especially in the south with a cool easterly wind. Increasing cloud looks set to spread from the north during Thursday, bringing a little rain to many parts before a return to more settled conditions on Friday. From the weekend onwards, most places will continue to see a good deal of dry weather with near-normal temperatures, although some cloudier interludes may bring rain at times, especially for the northwest of the UK.

    UK Outlook for Saturday 24 Oct 2015 to Saturday 7 Nov 2015:

    Things look uncertain for the end of October and into early November with a mixture of weather patterns across the UK. The most probable trend is for the northwest of the UK to see the bulk of any wet and windy weather, with the southeast drier and more settled. Temperatures look set to be rather cold compared to normal, especially at first.
