Regional Forecast for North West England

Headline:

Plenty of sunshine today.

Today:

Despite the chilly start, it will be a clear and mainly sunny day with crisp autumn sunshine. Skies may start to cloud over at times and although most places will stay dry, the odd shower cannot be ruled out. Maximum temperature 14 °C.

Tonight:

The weather will stay fine this evening, with any showers fading away. Temperatures will drop quickly under clear skies, with frost or patchy fog possible in rural areas by morning. Minimum temperature 1 °C.

Tuesday:

Tuesday will be another fine day with hazy sunshine. It will stay dry, but feeling chilly when the wind picks up later, possibly with some rain moving into Cumbria. Maximum temperature 16 °C.

Outlook for Wednesday to Friday:

Wednesday and Thursday will be fairly cloudy and breezy with rain possible at times. By Friday, the rain is likely to have cleared to leave a fine day.

Updated: 01:51 on Mon 24 Sep 2018 BST

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

A fine day for many with sunny spells.

Today:

After a chilly start, it will be a bright and sunny day for most. Scattered showers will spread across the northern half of the UK, but elsewhere it will stay dry.

Tonight:

Showers becoming confined to northwest Scotland and staying dry elsewhere. Temperatures will drop quickly under clear skies, with frost or fog possible in rural areas by morning.

Tuesday:

Tuesday will be another fine day across the southern half of the UK. However, in the north it will turn wet and windy later, with gales in the far north.

Outlook for Wednesday to Friday:

Windy in the north on Wednesday and Thursday with outbreaks of rain; fine and dry elsewhere. Largely fine and dry on Friday and partly cloudy. Morning fog patches in south.

Updated: 01:04 on Mon 24 Sep 2018 BST

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Saturday 29 Sep 2018 to Monday 8 Oct 2018:

This weekend there'll be a good deal of fine weather, with the best of the sunshine across the south and west. However, northwestern areas will probably become cloudier with some rain through Saturday, with this patchy rain sinking slowly south and east but tending to die away as it does so. On Sunday northern and eastern parts will see some blustery showers, and it will become very windy in the far north with gales. Through the first week of October, many areas are likely to remain mostly settled, with some cold nights at first and perhaps some early morning fog, but still with some warm sunshine by day. Southern parts are likely to see the driest weather, but some wet and windy weather is possible at times in the north.

UK Outlook for Tuesday 9 Oct 2018 to Tuesday 23 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. Longer 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. Temperatures are likely to be near normal to locally warm at times, but overall colder than normal.
