UK long range weather forecast

Monday should see sunny spells with easing winds and isolated showers, some of which could be heavy. Looking ahead, the unsettled theme is set to continue for a brief period in the northwest with blustery showers and longer spells of rain. There should then be some longer episodes of more settled weather with bright and sunny spells mainly in the central, southern and eastern areas of the UK. The fine conditions should spread into the northwest towards the end of October. Temperatures should remain around average for this time of the year, which means there could be potential for overnight frost or fog on clear nights, but it may feel milder in any sunshine during the day.

Updated:


The end of October looks to be largely settled and dry for most areas with a mixture of cloud and sunshine. Any spells of rain are likely to be confined to the far northwest. Clear conditions at night may allow temperatures to fall a little below average with overnight frosts and fog patches likely. During November, there is a chance of more unsettled conditions with some rain or showers possible at times, however there is high uncertainty this far ahead.
