UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

A lot of dry weather with some brightness. Windy later.

Today:

A cloudy and occasionally damp start to the day. However, some bright or sunny spells will emerge in the afternoon. Later in the day a zone of wet and windy weather arrives in western parts with coastal gales likely.

Tonight:

Winds strengthen, especially across the west with severe gales expected around coasts. Elsewhere a band of rain travels northeastwards and blustery showers or spells of rain will affect western parts.

Very windy with gales or severe gales in places, especially in the south and west. Bands of heavy showers or longer spells of rain will move across most parts.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Improving picture on Sunday as wind and rain ease. Remaining breezy but mild next week with further rain, especially in the south. Becoming brighter and more showery in the north.

Updated: 02:13 on Fri 20 Oct 2017 BST

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Wednesday 25 Oct 2017 to Friday 3 Nov 2017:

A little rain possible at first in the south on Wednesday, but this tending to peter out, leaving more in the way of drier weather for much of the UK, compared to the start of the week. Temperatures will also be on the warm side, with some mild nights too. Through next weekend, a more unsettled theme seems likely, especially in the northwest, where strong winds will bring a mixture of rain followed by brighter, showery interludes. Further southeast it should remain drier, though some rain is possible here too. Into early November, confidence in the forecast becomes very low, with a changeable theme and near average temperatures seeming most likely. Northern areas look most likely to see further wind and rain at times, with drier conditions in the south.

UK Outlook for Saturday 4 Nov 2017 to Saturday 18 Nov 2017:

Confidence in the forecast during this period is very low. However, after a changeable start with near average temperatures, there is an increasing chance of more prolonged settled spells developing by the end of the first week of November, which may continue into mid month, especially in the south. This would lead to an increased chance of frost and fog overnight. However, northern areas could hold onto more in the way of wind and rain at times. Temperatures should stay mostly near or perhaps slightly above average, although probably dipping to below average in any more settled spells.
