Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Sunday 30 Sep 2018 to Tuesday 9 Oct 2018:

Sunday sees fine and settled weather with sunny spells for most, but with a band of cloud and increasingly light and patchy rain sinking slowly southwards through the day. On Monday some wet and windy weather may move south across northern areas, but weakening as it does so. Ahead of this there'll be fine weather with some sunshine. Through the first week of October unsettled, windy weather is possible in the far north, perhaps affecting parts of the east at times. However many areas should remain settled, with some cold nights and early morning fog, but with some warm sunshine by day. Into the second week of October more generally changeable conditions may become established.

UK Outlook for Wednesday 10 Oct 2018 to Wednesday 24 Oct 2018:

The start of this period is likely to begin with a lot of dry and fine weather, but with an increasing trend towards much more changeable conditions becoming established. Whilst there remains considerable uncertainty in the forecast detail, there is a greater chance of spells of wet and windy weather from mid October onwards, with the rain possibly turning wintry at times over the highest ground in the north. There should still be some spells of dry and fine weather, especially at first, but these will bring some cold nights and morning fog. Temperatures will be generally colder than average, but with some milder interludes at times.
