UK 5 day weather forecast


Many areas fine, some rain skirting southeast England on Monday.

This Evening and Tonight:

Scattered showers fading, leaving many areas dry. Scotland and Northern Ireland seeing long clear spells, leading to frost and patchy fog. Rather cloudy and breezy further south, so less cold here, but rain reaching parts of Kent and East Anglia.


Wet weather fringes Kent and coastal East Anglia for a time. Elsewhere mostly dry, sunny spells developing for many. The far north turns cloudier and windier later, with overnight rain.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

Unsettled and windy in the northwest with rain clearing to sunshine and showers. Morning frost and fog elsewhere with sunny spells developing. A few showers in the southeast from Wednesday.


UK long range weather forecast

Rain across the northwest on Friday, possibly snow over Scottish mountains. Elsewhere, largely dry with sunny spells after fog patches clear. Next weekend becomes increasingly uncertain, but unsettled and perhaps very windy conditions could extend across much of the UK. Through the following week it may become drier and more settled again with some sunshine but also overnight fog patches, which could be slow to clear by day. However, Atlantic fronts could still bring further rain and strong winds northwards and eastwards into the UK at times. There will probably be some marked variations in temperature across the UK but more often below average in the north and above average in the south. However, the more settled spells could bring colder conditions more widely at times, accompanied by night frosts.


There is significant uncertainty through this period. However, the beginning of November may become more settled and dry for many areas with a mixture of cloud and sunshine. Any spells of rain are more likely in southern and southwestern areas. Temperatures will probably be a little below average with overnight frosts and fog patches likely, which could persist well into the mornings. Further spells of unsettled, windy conditions with some rain or showers are likely at times, more especially towards the middle of the month.
