UK long range weather forecast

After a wet start to the weekend, Sunday will be drier and cooler with sunny spells for most of the UK. Scattered showers will continue in the north with some turning heavy at times. Into next week, it is likely we will see some dry spells with plenty of sunshine across all areas. It may also be windy, with severe gales possible in places. Northern areas may see some colder outbreaks leading to overnight frosts and some showers may turn wintry over the hills. However, in the south it may be milder overall. Moving into November, it is possible that drier, more settled spells will continue with temperatures near or a little below average with night frosts at times.

Updated:


The first half of November should be mostly settled and dry for the majority of the UK with plenty of sunny spells. Although there is significant uncertainty for this period, any rain or showers are most likely to be in southern and southwestern areas. It seems probable that temperatures will be a little below average with the potential of frosts and fog patches forming overnight. Despite the mainly settled outlook, more changeable periods of rain or showers may be possible too.
