    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Saturday 28 Sep 2019 to Monday 7 Oct 2019:

    The unsettled conditions looks set to continue this weekend with a mixture of sunny spells and showers for most. The showers will be heaviest and most frequent across northern and western parts. However, there is the risk of heavy rain and strong winds arriving into the southwest later on Saturday and into Sunday. The unsettled weather looks set to remain as we go into early October, with further wet and windy weather likely to affect mainly northern and western parts of the UK, with the risk of gales at times. However, southern and eastern parts could see some drier and brighter periods, with the risk of overnight fog. Temperatures are likely to be near or a little above the average, but cooler in the wind and rain at times.

    UK Outlook for Tuesday 8 Oct 2019 to Tuesday 22 Oct 2019:

    Confidence in the forecast remains low through this period. However, towards the middle of October we may see spells of fine and settled weather becoming more widespread, particularly in the south and east of the UK. These would bring bright days, but with the increasing risk of overnight fog and probably some frost. However, it is more likely that we will see a north/south split, with northern and western parts of the country continuing to see rain at times, and this might spread across the rest of the country as we go through October. Temperatures are likely to be close to the average, but with settled weather, some warmer days and cooler nights are likely.
