UK forecast for the next 5 days

Dry and warm for many, but rain in the northwest.

Today:

A dry day across much of the country with warm sunny spells, especially in the south and east, although outbreaks of rain will continue in the far northwest. Winds will strengthen in the west, with rain edging slowly southeastwards later.

Tonight:

A dry end to the day for many, but cloud, rain and strong winds will continue to move southeastwards overnight, with clearer, showery conditions following into the northwest by dawn.

Saturday:

Rain in the southeast will be slow to clear. Elsewhere, plenty of dry, bright weather, but further rain and strong winds arriving into western areas later in the afternoon.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Rain over central areas gradually clearing to the southeast on Sunday, with cooler, showery weather following and continuing through Monday.Colder still, but showers easing a little on Tuesday. Windy.

Issued at: 0400 on Fri 31 Oct 2014

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Wednesday 5 Nov 2014 to Friday 14 Nov 2014:

Mainly dry on Wednesday and Thursday with just a few showers in the northeast at first. There will be a marked fall in temperature during the Wednesday evening with a sharp frost likely overnight, especially in the north. Later on Thursday, it will turn wet and windy in the west with some heavy rain possible for a time, and strong to gale force winds, and perhaps reaching severe gale force locally in the far northwest. Thereafter, a return to more unsettled and windy weather from the west looks the most likely scenario, with spells of rain pushing northeastwards across the country interspersed by brighter, showery and colder days. Some particularly wet and windy weather is a possibility at times. Temperatures are likely to return to nearer normal for November.

UK Outlook for Saturday 15 Nov 2014 to Saturday 29 Nov 2014:

During this period, the generally west or southwesterly flow is likely to bring spells of wet and windy weather, especially to northern and western parts of the UK. However, southern and eastern areas may see some drier and settled conditions increasing the likelihood of some sunshine, but also the risk of frost, mist and fog overnight, the latter of which could be slow to clear. Spells of unsettled weather are still likely across the south and east though. Daytime temperatures may well be near normal, although it will feel colder during any wet and windy spells.
