Regional Forecast for South West England

Headline:

Windy with sunny spells and a little showery rain.

Today:

A windy day in store, but dry at first with some sunshine. A spell of rain will move across the region during the afternoon, but as this clears brighter skies will follow to the west. Feeling warm. Maximum temperature 21 °C.

Tonight:

Winds will ease and many will start with clear skies. However, cloud will thicken through the small hours, bringing rain across northern parts of the region. Turning windier again later. Minimum temperature 13 °C.

Thursday:

A little rain across northern parts on Thursday, otherwise generally dry and windy with a few bright spells. However, rain will turn heavy and persistent through the evening. Maximum temperature 21 °C.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

Windy and cool on Friday with sunshine and blustery showers. Starting dry on Saturday but turning cloudier with rain later. Potentially windy with some rain on Sunday.

Updated: 03:23 on Wed 19 Sep 2018 BST

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Storm Ali brings extremely strong winds across the north.

Today:

Stormy across northern areas with extremely strong winds, over Northern Ireland, southern Scotland and into northern England. Heavy rain will accompany the wind. Elsewhere, windy too, with sunny spells either side of a band of showery rain, moving southeastwards.

Tonight:

Strongest winds easing, but remaining very windy in the north with gales and blustery showers. Clear spells further south, before heavy rain reaches Wales, central and northern England towards dawn.

Thursday:

Calmer in the north, but still blustery in northern Scotland with heavy showers. Unsettled elsewhere, with spells of heavy rain and strong winds. The far southeast perhaps remaining dry.

Outlook for Friday to Sunday:

Unsettled with sunshine and blustery showers on Friday. Drier start on Saturday, but showery in the northeast and rain returning to the southwest. Potentially wet and very windy on Sunday.

Updated: 03:19 on Wed 19 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.
