Regional Forecast for Northern Ireland

Headline:

Cloudy with showers or longer periods of rain.

Today:

The best of the limited brighter spells expected at first and along the Causeway Coast and Glens, but it will be a mainly cloudy day with showers or longer periods of rain. Winds strong, occasionally gale over the coast. Maximum temperature 14 °C.

Tonight:

Remaining overcast through the evening and night with periods of rain, this most persistent late evening and at first overnight. Northwesterly winds strong to gale force. Minimum temperature 8 °C.

Sunday:

Rather cloudy start with showers, frequent at first, gradually dwindling from the west through the afternoon as brighter spells prosper and winds ease. Maximum temperature 14 °C.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

Rain bands crossing from the west for a time both Monday and Tuesday, most persistent across northern areas, but patchy in south. Rain spreading from south later Wednesday.

Updated: 03:28 on Sat 21 Oct 2017 BST

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Windy with coastal gales in the south and west.

Today:

Storm Brian will bring strong or very strong winds across southern and western parts of the UK with gales or severe gales in exposure. Blustery showers, mainly in the west, could merge to give persistent periods of rain at times.

Tonight:

Cloudy and windy, although the wind easing somewhat, with further outbreaks of rain or showers across northern and western parts of the UK. Staying driest in the southeast.

Sunday:

Rain and cloud clearing eastwards to allow drier, brighter weather to develop. Showers in the west, which may be heavy at times, will gradually become lighter. Winds slowly becoming lighter.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

Rain and cloud spreading across the UK on Monday. Sunniest in the east. A brighter day for the north on Tuesday. Further spells of rain expected on Wednesday.

Updated: 03:51 on Sat 21 Oct 2017 BST

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Wednesday 25 Oct 2017 to Friday 3 Nov 2017:

A little rain possible at first in the south on Wednesday, but this tending to peter out, leaving more in the way of drier weather for much of the UK, compared to the start of the week. Temperatures will also be on the warm side, with some mild nights too. Through next weekend, a more unsettled theme seems likely, especially in the northwest, where strong winds will bring a mixture of rain followed by brighter, showery interludes. Further southeast it should remain drier, though some rain is possible here too. Into early November, confidence in the forecast becomes very low, with a changeable theme and near average temperatures seeming most likely. Northern areas look most likely to see further wind and rain at times, with drier conditions in the south.

UK Outlook for Saturday 4 Nov 2017 to Saturday 18 Nov 2017:

Confidence in the forecast during this period is very low. However, after a changeable start 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 overnight. 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.
