UK forecast for the next 5 days

Headline:

Generally milder overnight, but damp and murky in the south.

This Evening and Tonight:

A north/south split will develop in the weather overnight, with cloudy damp and murky conditions affecting central and southern parts of England and Wales. Elsewhere, it will be breezy with clear spells, but most will be milder than last night.

Saturday:

Cloud and outbreaks of drizzly rain, will spread northwards on Saturday. This will allow some warm sunshine to develop across central and southwest England and Wales, and northern Scotland.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Cloudy with sporadic rain in the west on Sunday and Monday. Often drier across Northern Ireland. Fine in the east. Mostly dry by Tuesday, but scattered showers in the east.

Updated: 16:22 on Fri 22 Sep 2017 BST

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Wednesday 27 Sep 2017 to Friday 6 Oct 2017:

To start the period, there is likely to be a west/east split in the weather. The west is likely to be cloudier, with outbreaks of rain and stronger winds, giving the risk of gales in the northwest. In contrast, the east will be drier and brighter with spells of sunshine, although some rain may reach here too. Towards the start of October, it is likely that all areas will become changeable. The west is likely to see the heaviest of the rain and winds are likely to be strongest here too, with a risk of gales or severe gales, particularly in the northwest. Temperatures will generally be above normal, perhaps warm across central and eastern areas.

UK Outlook for Saturday 7 Oct 2017 to Saturday 21 Oct 2017:

More unsettled weather will continue across the country by the second week in October, most especially in the north and west. This will bring an increased likelihood of gales or severe gales as well as heavier rain across many parts. By mid October, confidence in the forecast reduces, however it may remain generally unsettled with occasional drier and brighter spells, particularly in the east and southeast. On the whole, temperatures will be close to or slightly warmer than normal, but in any settled spells there could be chilly nights, with an increased risk of mist, fog and frost, especially in the north.
