UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Mist and fog patches in parts of England and Wales.

This Evening and Tonight:

The UK will stay mainly dry with clear spells. Some mist and fog patches will develop, particularly in the Midlands and eastern Wales. Patchy frost is likely in the north, and wind and rain will reach northwest Scotland later.

Friday:

After early mist has cleared, most places will be dry with sunny spells. Morning rain in Scotland and other northern hills will be replaced by sunshine and the odd shower.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday:

The south will stay fine and fairly warm until cooler air arrives for Monday. The north will be cooler and windier with spells of rain mostly affecting western areas.

Updated: 15:00 on Thu 18 Oct 2018 BST

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Tuesday 23 Oct 2018 to Thursday 1 Nov 2018:

The start of the period will be mainly dry across most areas, although it could be rather cloudy. The best of the sunshine is likely in the southwest. However,the far north will be cloudy with outbreaks of rain, turning heavy at times in the northwest. It will also be windy across the north with gales possible in the far north of Scotland. 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 frost and perhaps some patchy fog is possible overnight.

UK Outlook for Friday 2 Nov 2018 to Friday 16 Nov 2018:

More widely unsettled conditions could develop during the beginning of November, bringing spells of wet and windy weather. There are signs that high pressure may build across northern areas towards the end of this period, bringing a greater likelihood of drier weather here and also overnight frost and fog. Changeable conditions are more likely to continue across the south and west. On the whole temperatures are likely to be below normal, but some short lived milder spells are likely in periods of wet weather.
