Sunday:

Heavy and persistent rain will push eastwards through the morning, leaving a much brighter but breezier afternoon, with the odd isolated shower. Feeling cool, despite the sunshine. Maximum temperature 15 °C.

Dry and settled through early next week. Sunshine by day will allow it to become warmer, but with clear skies overnight patchy fog and rural frost is possible at first.

Updated: 15:12 on Sat 22 Sep 2018 BST

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Rain in the south easing. Clearer with showers further north.

This Evening and Tonight:

Rain across the south will ease for a time, but it will remain damp with low cloud, mist and drizzle. Heavier rain will return to Wales and southwest England later. Elsewhere, cold with clear spells and showers in the northwest.

Sunday:

A spell of heavy rain will move eastwards across southern areas, with strong winds along the south coast. Sunny spells further north, extending to all later, with scattered blustery showers.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

Much more settled initially, although showers in the north. From Tuesday, rain and stronger winds are likely in the north. Becoming warmer by day but chilly overnight, especially further south.

Updated: 15:11 on Sat 22 Sep 2018 BST

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Thursday 27 Sep 2018 to Saturday 6 Oct 2018:

Through the remainder of September the weather should stay largely settled with long spells of sunshine and generally light winds. Northern and northwestern areas may be more changeable at times, with stronger winds and some outbreaks of rain, which may occasionally extend a little further east and south. Overnight, pockets of mist and fog are possible, especially in the south although it should remain mostly dry here. By day it will be warm for many, but some nights will be chilly with patchy frost possible. Into early October, many areas are likely to remain mostly settled, but it is likely to turn generally colder. Southern parts are likely to see the driest weather, but some wet and windy weather is possible in the north.

UK Outlook for Sunday 7 Oct 2018 to Sunday 21 Oct 2018:

Generally settled and drier conditions are likely to dominate across many parts of the UK during the beginning of this period, particularly across the south. This should bring a good deal of sunshine with any wet and windy weather, likely to be mostly confined to the north. Long nights will lead to a greater chance of fog and patchy frost, but the days will often be mild. Towards the middle of the month, there is considerable uncertainty in the forecast, with the chance that it may turn more unsettled across all parts, although this is most likely to be across the north.
