    Turning brighter with murky conditions becoming confined to the southeast.

    Chance of further drizzle, low cloud and increasing amounts of hill fog in southeastern areas, otherwise fine with fog patches in prone rural spots. Chilly in the north and west.

    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Saturday 6 Sep 2014 to Monday 15 Sep 2014:

    Many places dry through the weekend, with variable, but often large amounts of cloud and some bright or sunny spells, but there is an increasing risk of rain or showers spreading across southern and southwestern areas, possibly extending to central areas by the end of Sunday. Into next week, still a good deal of dry weather, especially towards the north, but probably becoming more unsettled from the southwest, with heavy rain possible at times. Light winds at first but becoming breezy from the southwest. Temperatures generally near or a little above average. Into the latter part of next week and beyond, the most likely scenario is for the unsettled conditions to migrate towards the northwest of the UK, with the best of the drier and warmer conditions towards the southeast.

    UK Outlook for Tuesday 16 Sep 2014 to Tuesday 30 Sep 2014:

    During mid to late September most regions can expect to see periods of fine weather, with some warm sunshine at times. However, these fine periods may well be interspersed with occasional spells of cloudier, more unsettled conditions bringing showers or longer spells of rain. Northern and western parts are probably most likely to see the more frequent bouts of unsettled weather, whilst southern and eastern parts should see the better fine and dry spells. Daytime temperatures are likely to be above average during fine weather leaving conditions feeling pleasantly warm. Nights, however, may well be on the chilly side. During any unsettled weather daytime temperatures are more likely to be near or below average leaving conditions feeling cool.
