    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Wednesday 30 Sep 2020 to Friday 9 Oct 2020:

    An unsettled period, with plenty of showers and some occasional longer spells of rain across much of the country. Some drier and brighter spells are possible at times, which will most likely in southern and eastern areas. The heaviest and most prolonged spells of rain will be in the north and west to begin with but, with time, they are likely to become more widespread across the UK. It will be generally windy, with a risk of gales at times (potentially severe), particularly in northern and northwestern regions. Feeling cold through much of early October, especially where there is persistent rain and strong winds. Frost is possible at night in any calmer period, especially in northern Britain.

    UK Outlook for Saturday 10 Oct 2020 to Saturday 24 Oct 2020:

    A potential change in the weather is anticipated around the middle of October. Whilst further rain and strong winds are likely at times, spells of fine and dry weather could become more widespread and long-lived. At night, these calmer conditions could allow frost and fog to form more readily. At this time of year, there is potential for fog to linger well into the daytime. Overall, temperatures probably recovering close to the seasonal average for mid-October.
