Regional forecast for London & South East England

A bright but chilly start, gradually becoming cloudier.

A colder start than of late under largely clear skies, with winds having eased overnight. Morning sunny spells will gradually give way to cloudier and breezier conditions from the west into the afternoon, although it should stay dry throughout. Maximum Temperature 15C.

Tonight:

A milder night than the last, with generally cloudy conditions perhaps eventually giving the odd spot of rain in places by dawn. Minimum Temperature 9C.

Slightly warmer but cloudier than Wednesday. While there will be some limited brighter spells, it will be generally rather cloudy and breezy, with patchy light rain possible at times. Maximum Temperature 17C.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

Issued at: 0500 on Wed 22 Oct 2014

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Wet and windy in north. Drier, but increasingly cloudy elsewhere.

Today:

A dry, bright and chilly start for many southern and eastern areas, though it will turn cloudier through the day. Rain and strengthening winds will return to Northern Ireland, Scotland and northern England, turning heavy at times over western hills.

Tonight:

Generally cloudy with a few clear spells in the southeast and occasional rain in the west, persistent in some northwestern areas. A milder night, but remaining windy in the north.

Thursday:

A generally breezy and cloudy day with some brighter spells in the south and east. Sporadic outbreaks of rain, mainly in the west, persistent in the northwest. Temperatures above normal.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

A band of rain will push southeast through Friday, clearing southeast England early Saturday. Then all parts brighter with occasional showers, more rain in the northwest later. Becoming very windy.

Issued at: 0500 on Wed 22 Oct 2014

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Monday 27 Oct 2014 to Wednesday 5 Nov 2014:

The south is likely to see settled conditions on Monday and Tuesday, with rain and strong winds continuing further north. A north-south split looks most likely to develop by the middle of next week. Windy and unsettled conditions are likely in the north and somewhat quieter, drier weather in the south, although there may be some rain here at times. Temperatures will generally be near normal, although feeling cold in the rain. By the end of October and into early November, the broad north-south split looks set to continue, with northern areas remaining changeable and at times unsettled. Further south, there are hints that pressure may rise further, increasing the potential for more prolonged drier periods with some sunshine, but with a greater risk of overnight and morning fog.

UK Outlook for Thursday 6 Nov 2014 to Thursday 20 Nov 2014:

The main signal is for a continuation of a north-south split during the second week of November. During this period, the generally westerly flow is likely to bring spells of wet and windy weather, mostly affecting northern and some western areas, but perhaps reaching other areas as well interspersed with drier intervals. However southern and some eastern areas will probably see more in the way of drier and settled conditions increasing the likelihood of seeing some sunshine, but also the risk of frost, mist and fog overnight, the latter of which could be slow to clear. After this it looks like unsettled weather will spread to much of the UK. Daytime temperatures will probably be near or a little above normal, although feeling cooler during any wet and windy spells.
