    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Sunday 1 Nov 2020 to Tuesday 10 Nov 2020:

    The first few days of November will likely see unsettled conditions with outbreaks of rain, followed by a more showery regime with strong winds and possibly gales at times. The north of the UK is more likely to see any longer spells of rain and showers which develop, as well as strong winds and possibly gales. By the end of the first week of November, there will be a transition from predominantly low pressure to high pressure, with winds becoming light. Initially in the period, temperatures will likely recover to near-normal. With the transition to high pressure, the UK will see drier and settled weather. Temperatures may start to feel rather cold, with overnight fog and frost becoming more common, particularly in the south.

    UK Outlook for Wednesday 11 Nov 2020 to Wednesday 25 Nov 2020:

    Settled weather is likely to continue until the middle of November, with high pressure looking to dominate. This will bring dry and settled conditions, especially for the south of the UK whereas any wet windy weather will be mostly confined to the north. Confidence lowers for the second half of November but current signals suggest an autumnal setup with colder conditions developing and more frequent showers, with the heaviest of these showers affecting the east of the UK. Another spell of drier, more settled conditions is possible towards the end of November, but confidence remains low for this. Despite the settled conditions in the south temperatures are expected to be lower than average for the time of year, whereas they will be closer to normal in the north.
