Regional Forecast for South West England

Headline:

Mainly dry and cloudy today. Turning wet and windy tonight.

Today:

Friday begins on a dry and bright note with a few sunny spells continuning into the afternoon across the east. However further west a band of wet and windy weather will arrive and steadily spread east with coastal gales likely. Maximum temperature 15 °C.

Tonight:

Rain clears to the east during the first part of the night with heavy, blustery showers following behind. Turning very windy across all parts with severe gales possible around coasts. Minimum temperature 10 °C.

Saturday:

A very windy day with gales for many or severe gales in exposed coastal areas, giving a cool feel. There will also be heavy, blustery showers in all parts. Maximum temperature 15 °C.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Winds gradually ease for Sunday which will be a breezy day with some blustery showers. Monday and Tuesday will bring breezy and often wet weather but it will become milder.

Updated: 02:17 on Fri 20 Oct 2017 BST

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

A lot of dry weather with some brightness. Windy later.

Today:

A cloudy and occasionally damp start to the day. However, some bright or sunny spells will emerge in the afternoon. Later in the day a zone of wet and windy weather arrives in western parts with coastal gales likely.

Tonight:

Winds strengthen, especially across the west with severe gales expected around coasts. Elsewhere a band of rain travels northeastwards and blustery showers or spells of rain will affect western parts.

Saturday:

Very windy with gales or severe gales in places, especially in the south and west. Bands of heavy showers or longer spells of rain will move across most parts.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Improving picture on Sunday as wind and rain ease. Remaining breezy but mild next week with further rain, especially in the south. Becoming brighter and more showery in the north.

Updated: 02:13 on Fri 20 Oct 2017 BST

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Tuesday 24 Oct 2017 to Thursday 2 Nov 2017:

Tuesday and Wednesday look generally rather windy with gales possible in exposed areas, especially in the northwest. There will be showers or longer spells of rain for many, perhaps persistent in the south. Confidence in the forecast reduces during the remainder of October into early November. However, a northwest to southeast split is most likely. The northwest should continue with some wet and windy weather interspersed by brief brighter, showery interludes, whilst the southeast will be best placed to have more prolonged drier spells. Temperatures are most likely to be slightly above normal. Having said this there is a chance of more settled, colder conditions becoming established with morning fog patches, especially in the south.

UK Outlook for Friday 3 Nov 2017 to Friday 17 Nov 2017:

Confidence in the forecast during this period is very low. However, on balance it appears that the early part of November will most likely be changeable with near average temperatures. There is an increasing chance of more prolonged settled spells developing by the end of the first week of November, which may continue into mid month, especially in the south. This would lead to an increased chance of frost and fog. However, northern areas could hold onto more in the way of wind and rain at times. Temperatures should stay mostly near or perhaps slightly above average, although probably dipping to below average in any more settled spells.
