Regional Forecast for South West England

Headline:

Windy today, with heavy rain arriving tonight.

Today:

A dry day for most with some brightness, but a little rain may affect northwestern parts of the region at first this morning. Southwesterly winds will strengthen, with gales around coasts and hills. Despite this it will be warm. Maximum temperature 20 °C.

Tonight:

Perhaps turning very windy overnight with a spell of heavy rain crossing all parts. This will clear later, allowing it to turn cooler, with clear spells and scattered showers. Minimum temperature 10 °C.

Friday:

Sunshine and scattered showers on Friday, these locally heavy with the risk of hail and thunder. Remaining windy and feeling cooler. Maximum temperature 17 °C.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

Unsettled this weekend with persistent and locally heavy rain on Saturday, possibly followed by a wet and very windy day on Sunday. Much drier by Monday, with plenty of sunshine.

Updated: 03:10 on Thu 20 Sep 2018 BST

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Calmer in the north, but turning wet and windy elsewhere.

Today:

Winds in northern Scotland easing, leaving a calmer day with some sunshine and scattered heavy showers. Elsewhere, rain through Wales and central England becoming heavier and more widespread with strong winds developing in places. Dry and bright in southeast England.

Tonight:

Wet and potentially very windy for many areas overnight with gales and spells of heavy rain. Turning drier from the southwest later, but with scattered blustery showers.

Friday:

Rain and very strong winds will clear northeast Scotland through the morning. Thereafter, windy and feeling much cooler for all with sunshine and heavy, blustery showers.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

Starting dry on Saturday, but showery in the northeast and rain spreading east across the south. Central and southern areas potentially wet and very windy on Sunday. Brighter on Monday.

Updated: 03:06 on Thu 20 Sep 2018 BST

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Monday 24 Sep 2018 to Wednesday 3 Oct 2018:

Strong winds may persist in the far east or northeast on Monday morning, but otherwise a much quieter spell of weather is expected during Monday and Tuesday with a good deal of dry and bright weather across the UK. It is likely to be cool overnight with frost possible in some prone areas and fog is also expected in places. Despite some sunshine by day temperatures will overall be fairly cool. Through the rest of this period any wet and windy weather is likely to be confined to the northwest with drier, brighter conditions expected across the southeast which are likely to extend to all areas at times. There will still be some cool nights but by day temperatures may well be warm.

UK Outlook for Thursday 4 Oct 2018 to Thursday 18 Oct 2018:

Settled conditions are expected to dominate across much of the UK through the beginning of this period, bringing a good deal of dry and bright weather with any brief wet and windy spells likely to be confined to the northwest of the UK. Increasingly long nights gives a greater risk of patches of fog forming overnight and some places may also see some frost. Despite chilly nights, any sunshine by day will give a rather warm feel. Later on in this period there is considerable uncertainty in the forecast with a chance that some more unsettled weather may become established again.
