UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Clear spells will lead to a chilly night for many.

This Evening and Tonight:

Wednesday evening will be dry for many, with patchy rain becoming confined to the far southeast, though some low cloud elsewhere in the south. Further north, clear skies will develop, leading to patchy frost and a few fog patches.

Thursday:

Thursday will be dry and sunny for many after a chilly start, perhaps cloudier at times in southeast England. Northwestern Scotland will turn breezy later with the odd shower.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

A north/south split will establish throughout the period with fine and dry conditions more prevalent across the south, but breezier with rain or showers at times in the north.

Updated: 15:53 on Wed 17 Oct 2018 BST

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Monday 22 Oct 2018 to Wednesday 31 Oct 2018:

Monday will be dry and fine for many parts of the UK after a chilly and perhaps frosty start. However, across parts of Scotland spells of rain are expected. It will also be windy across the north with gales possible in the far north of Scotland occasionally. Thereafter, it is likely to stay generally changeable across northern areas through this period with spells of wet and windy weather interspersed with brighter and showery spells. Drier and brighter conditions are likely in the south, particularly in central and southwestern areas of England and Wales. Temperatures are expected to vary around average by day but some frostand perhaps also some patchy fog is possible overnight where skies are clear.

UK Outlook for Thursday 1 Nov 2018 to Thursday 15 Nov 2018:

Generally unsettled conditions are expected during the beginning of November, bringing spells of wet and windy weather. The heaviest rain is likely across northern and perhaps eastern parts of the UK. The best of the drier and brighter weather is likely in southwestern areas, though some rain is still expected here at times. There are tentative signs that pressure will build across northern areas towards the end of this period, bringing a greater likelihood of drier weather here and also overnight fog and frost but confidence is currently low. Changeable conditions are then more likely across the south. On the whole temperatures are likely to be below normal, but some milder spells are likely in periods of wet weather.
