UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Rain slowly easing in the southeast, some sunshine elsewhere.

Updated: 01:45 on Mon 15 Oct 2018 BST

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Friday 19 Oct 2018 to Sunday 28 Oct 2018:

Friday should start with a fine spell of weather with sunny spells, once early mist and fog across southern and central parts has cleared. Cloud and a weakening band of rain in the northwest will make progress southeastwards on Friday, reaching most parts of the country by day's end. Strong winds and showers should follow in the far northwest for a time. From next weekend onwards it will be changeable with periods of wet and windy weather interspersed with brighter and showery spells. The heaviest rain is likely in the north and west, where there's a risk of gales. Drier, brighter in the southeast, although some wet and windy spells likely here too. Temperatures varying around average, but becoming rather cold later with an increasing risk of overnight frosts.

UK Outlook for Monday 29 Oct 2018 to Monday 12 Nov 2018:

By the end of October and into early November weather systems may become slow-moving at times. This will lead to the risk of longer unsettled spells and, conversely, the chance of longer settled spells. Western and northwestern areas will probably see the wettest and windiest conditions, with the south and east often drier and brighter, although still with some rain at times too. During any generally settled and drier spells of weather there is an increasing risk of overnight frost and fog, especially in the north of the UK. On the whole temperatures are likely to be rather cold overall.
