Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Thursday 25 Oct 2018 to Saturday 3 Nov 2018:

On Thursday, mainly dry weather is expected in the south, but patchy rain and stronger winds in the north are likely to spread south. From Friday, a change to much colder weather accompanied by sunshine and showers is expected. By next weekend, cold northerly winds will probably bring snow to higher ground in the north and perhaps occasionally to low levels here also. However snow is unlikely to settle at low levels. It will be windy with gales in places, especially the east. Night frost could become widespread with icy patches possible. Many places will become dry and bright from the northwest by the end of next weekend However, more changeable and at times windy conditions will probably become established at the end of this month and going into November.

UK Outlook for Sunday 4 Nov 2018 to Sunday 18 Nov 2018:

The weather may be changeable and windy at times with bands of rain or showers, especially in the north. The rain could change to snow at times on northern hills. Cold nights are likely at times with a risk of ice on roads and pavements in the mornings. Towards the middle of the month, there are signs that high pressure may become more dominant to the north, bringing more generally settled conditions at times. However, fog and frost would become more likely. Meanwhile, more changeable and milder weather may become established across the south, with some rain here at times.
