UK long range weather forecast

Through the rest of September, we will see a mixture of changeable days with sunny spells in between showers, and days with grey skies and more persistent rainfall. It is likely to be windy at times, with the potential for gales, particularly in the west and southwest. Temperatures will be close to normal, but in any drier spells, they may be warmer than average. Into the start of October, it is most likely that we will see a continuation of the changeable weather, although this is not certain yet. We could also see a return of more settled weather for the southeast, but still in the northwest it may remain unsettled with wind and rain.


Confidence in the forecast remains low through this period. However early October may bring some fine and settled weather with bright days, but mist, fog and increasingly some frost overnight. Northern and western parts of the country may continue to see some rain at times, and this might spread across the rest of the country as we go through October. Temperatures are likely to be close to the average, but with settled weather this will bring warmer days and cooler nights.
