UK long range weather forecast

A north/south split is expected during the start of this period with unsettled conditions in the north and drier conditions further south. Next weekend becomes increasingly uncertain, but unsettled and perhaps very windy conditions could extend across much of the UK. Through the rest of October unsettled conditions are more likely to dominate but with some periods of fine weather, especially in the south east. There will probably be some marked variations in temperature across the UK throughout. Predominantly below average temperatures in the north and above average temperatures in the south. However, there is a chance that drier, brighter, but colder conditions could extend south across all areas at times from next weekend onwards. This would lead to frosts, with a small chance that more settled conditions could persist.


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.
