Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Friday 26 Oct 2018 to Sunday 4 Nov 2018:

It will be noticeably colder next weekend, with frosty and perhaps icy starts. A cold northerly wind is expected, which may be touching gale force in parts of the north and northeast. There will be sunshine and showers during the daytime, which could bring a mixture of sleet and snow to the tops of the hills and mountains in the north, but perhaps to lower levels at times in parts of Scotland. Into the following week the forecast becomes more uncertain, but it may be drier and more settled to begin the week, before a return of wet and windy weather. It looks to be staying generally on the cold side, with further overnight frost.

UK Outlook for Tuesday 6 Nov 2018 to Tuesday 20 Nov 2018:

The weather looks changeable and windy at times with bands of rain or showers, interspersed with drier, quieter spells. The wettest and windiest weather is most likely across parts of the north, with perhaps some snow at times over the mountains. Towards the middle of the month, there are signs that high pressure may become more dominant to the north, bringing more generally settled conditions here, but with a greater chance of overnight frost and fog. Meanwhile, more changeable weather may remain dominant across the south, with some rain here at times, although with any milder spells being short-lived.
