UK forecast for the next 5 days

Murky for many with some drizzle, clearer for Northern Ireland.

Updated: 15:03 on Mon 15 Oct 2018 BST

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Saturday 20 Oct 2018 to Monday 29 Oct 2018:

This weekend will slowly become more changeable across the country. Southern and many central areas will start dry with sunny periods after early fog clear. Northern areas will be more cloudy with outbreaks of rain and strong winds. The rain may move southwards through the weekend, turning lighter towards the southeast. Brighter and showery conditions will follow behind. Thereafter, it is likely to stay changeable with periods of wet and windy weather interspersed with brighter and showery spells. The heaviest rain is likely in the north, where there's a risk of gales. Generally drier and brighter in the south, particularly in central and southwestern areas. Temperatures varying around average, but becoming rather cold later with an increasing risk of overnight frosts.

UK Outlook for Tuesday 30 Oct 2018 to Tuesday 13 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, but some brief milder spells are also possible.
