Regional Forecast for South West England

Headline:

Turning chilly overnight with mostly clear skies.

This Evening and Tonight:

After a fine end to the day, it will turn chilly tonight with largely clear skies and light winds. A few patches of mist and fog will form in prone spots towards dawn. Minimum temperature 5 °C.

Friday:

Any mist and fog will soon clear to leave many places fine with sunny spells. However, cloud will thicken in the west, with some patchy rain in the west later. Maximum temperature 18 °C.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

Aside from some early drizzle, Saturday should be fine but breezy. Outbreaks of rain will arrive on Sunday, perhaps lingering on Monday, but it will be warmer than recent days.

Updated: 15:15 on Thu 21 Sep 2017 BST

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

A chilly night for many with clear skies.

This Evening and Tonight:

Rain will clear eastern England allowing it to turn dry and cold under clear skies. Patchy mist and fog will form in rural spots. Winds will strengthen in the west with rain reaching Northern Ireland and the Western Isles later.

Friday:

After a cold start, eastern and southern areas will be fine and pleasantly warm. Elsewhere, heavy rain and strong winds will gradually ease, with brighter skies across Northern Ireland later.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

Generally fine on Saturday, but strong winds in the northwest. Rain for some central and western parts on Sunday and Monday, but brighter elsewhere and warm in the southeast.

Updated: 15:14 on Thu 21 Sep 2017 BST

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Tuesday 26 Sep 2017 to Thursday 5 Oct 2017:

As we head through the end of September, there will be a west/east split in the weather. The west is likely to be cloudier with outbreaks of rain, perhaps heavy at times. In contrast, the east will be drier and brighter, but with generally light winds for all parts, there could be some chilly nights with mist and fog forming under any clearer skies. Towards the start of October, this split will continue but it is likely to turn windier and increasingly unsettled in the west, with a risk of gales or severe gales, particularly in the northwest. These unsettled conditions will erratically spread eastwards, but some central and eastern areas may perhaps stay dry throughout. Temperatures will generally be above normal, perhaps warm across central and eastern areas.

UK Outlook for Friday 6 Oct 2017 to Friday 20 Oct 2017:

More unsettled weather will perhaps be more widely established by the end of the first week in October, most especially in the north and west. This will bring an increased likelihood of stronger winds and heavier rain across many areas. By mid October, confidence in the forecast reduces, however it may remain generally unsettled with occasional drier and brighter spells. On the whole, temperatures will be close to or slightly warmer than normal, but in any settled spells there could be chilly nights, with an increased risk of mist, fog and frost, especially in the north.
