    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Wednesday 28 Sep 2016 to Friday 7 Oct 2016:

    Unsettled at first on Wednesday with blustery, occasionally heavy showers across much of the country, these most frequent in the northwest, where gales are also likely. Persistent and at times heavy rain is then possible later Wednesday and through Thursday, bringing gale force winds to the north at times. This pattern is then expected to continue through the remainder of the period, with spells of rain mixed with brighter, drier but occasional showery interludes. The northwest should see the most of the wet weather, with a risk of gales. Drier in southeastern parts, but some rain and breezy conditions are still possible. Temperatures should be around average through the rest of September, but perhaps a little below average at times from the start of October, with some overnight frosts.

Rain and strong winds possible for much of the country, especially in the north, intermixed with quieter, drier spells, these mainly in the south. Temperatures around, or slightly below average, with an increasing chance of some chilly nights and local frosts, especially in the north.
