    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Saturday 26 Sep 2020 to Monday 5 Oct 2020:

    The coming weekend will see a brief period of drier weather on Saturday, though it will be cold with grass frost possible widely. Looking further ahead however, it is set to return to an unsettled picture. Generally windy weather coupled with spells of rain and showers will likely continue through next week, with those showers becoming heavy and blustery at times. The heaviest rain most likely in the north and northwest, which may also see gales at times. Meanwhile, there may still be brief interludes of drier and sunnier weather, most likely in the south and southeast. Temperatures will generally be rather cool, potentially cooler in more persistent rainfall, and overnight frost may be seen in prone parts of the north as and when calmer spells of weather allow.
