Updated: 03:07 on Tue 16 Oct 2018 BST

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Becoming more settled for many later in the week.

Today:

Grey and damp for many across England and Wales, but it will brighten up in the afternoon. Similar for Northern Ireland and western Scotland, but rather windy here. Elsewhere in Scotland, a mainly bright morning, but some rain possible later.

Tonight:

Dry overnight for many. Some mist and fog patches possible in Northern Ireland and the far southeast of England. Frost possible in the north, and rain likely on western hills.

Wednesday:

Cloudy with rain across some parts of England, but bright and sunny elsewhere. A few blustery showers are possible between the sunny spells in Scotland.

Generally drier and more settled than recent days. Overnight frost and fog becoming more likely. Becoming wet and windy in the northwest on Friday and Saturday.

Updated: 03:06 on Tue 16 Oct 2018 BST

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Saturday 20 Oct 2018 to Monday 29 Oct 2018:

This weekend will slowly become more changeable across the country. Southern and many central areas will start dry with sunny periods after early fog clear. Northern areas will be more cloudy with outbreaks of rain and strong winds. The rain may move southwards through the weekend, turning lighter towards the southeast. Brighter and showery conditions will follow behind. Thereafter, it is likely to stay changeable with periods of wet and windy weather interspersed with brighter and showery spells. The heaviest rain is likely in the north, where there's a risk of gales. Generally drier and brighter in the south, particularly in central and southwestern areas. Temperatures varying around average, but becoming rather cold later with an increasing risk of overnight frosts.

UK Outlook for Tuesday 30 Oct 2018 to Tuesday 13 Nov 2018:

By the end of October and into early November weather systems may become slow moving at times. This will lead to the risk of longer unsettled spells and, conversely, the chance of longer settled spells. Western and northwestern areas will probably see the wettest and windiest conditions, with the south and east often drier and brighter, although still with some rain at times too. During any generally settled and drier spells of weather there is an increasing risk of overnight frost and fog, especially in the north of the UK. On the whole temperatures are likely to be rather cold, but some brief milder spells are also possible.
