UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Sunny for most, wet and windy in the northwest.

A clear, cold start, with the sunshine lasting throughout the day for many. However, skies will cloud over in Scotland and Northern Ireland, with rain and gales expected. It will also turn windier in northern England.

Rain and gales continuing overnight in Scotland and Northern Ireland, with some parts of northern England catching some rain too. Elsewhere, cold and dry with fog patches in the south.

Updated: 00:54 on Tue 25 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.
