UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

An autumnal week with wet and windy weather at times.

This Evening and Tonight:

Staying mild tonight, but breezy. It will be wet and windy across Scotland, with particularly strong winds across the far northwest. Elsewhere across the UK a mainly dry night but there will be a few showers in places.

Wednesday:

Storm Ali will bring severe gales and heavy rain to some northern parts of the UK. Elsewhere it will be fairly windy, with sunny spells and showers for a time.

Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

Thursday, wet and windy across central parts with rain throughout the day. Sunshine and showers on Friday. Fine on Saturday, before heavy rain and strong winds are possible later.

Updated: 15:02 on Tue 18 Sep 2018 BST

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Sunday 23 Sep 2018 to Tuesday 2 Oct 2018:

A wet and windy spell of weather is likely for many on Sunday, the rain probably becoming increasingly confined to Scotland later, with the risk of gales, perhaps severe gales at times in the north and northwest. Temperatures will be near average for most, but warm for parts of the southeast. Atlantic weather systems are then likely to continue to arrive from the west through the rest of the period bringing generally wetter conditions in the northwest, and drier conditions persisting for longest in the southeast. Strong winds are likely at times, particularly in the northwest with a low risk of gales. In between spells of rain there will be some pleasant sunshine and these more settled spells may become more dominant with time.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 3 Oct 2018 to Wednesday 17 Oct 2018:

October will see periods of dry and fine weather at times, especially in the south and southeast where there may be some warm days. Occasional spells of more unsettled weather are likely, mainly in the northwest where there is a risk of gales and heavy rain at times. These conditions will perhaps occasionally extend across other areas too. Overall daytime temperatures are likely to be close to or slightly above average in the southeast with a cooler feel under cloud and rain in the northwest. However the lengthening nights means that there will be some cool overnight temperatures, with an accompanying risk of patchy morning fog in prone spots.
