    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Wednesday 20 Oct 2021 to Friday 29 Oct 2021:

    Starting off widely unsettled with showery and windy conditions for many although this may improve from the west. A mixture of sunny spells and blustery showers for the east and northeast. Temperatures falling to below average for most increasing the likelihood of snow over higher ground in the north. More settled conditions likely to develop for a time into the weekend with some dry weather for most areas. However, probably soon turning unsettled again as cloud, rain and stronger winds arrive from the west. Unsettled conditions then likely to persist towards the end of October. Temperatures most likely trending up after a colder start to this period. Any further spells of colder weather likely short lived and restricted to the north.

    UK Outlook for Saturday 30 Oct 2021 to Saturday 13 Nov 2021:

    Through the end of October and early November the weather is likely to be dominated by systems arriving from the Atlantic. Remaining unsettled and windy with the wettest and windiest conditions in the north and west. Driest conditions across the south especially the southeast with lighter winds but the risk of overnight fog at times. From early to mid-November increasing chance of settled weather but confidence of this is very low. Temperatures are likely to be warmer than average for most. Perhaps some colder spells and an increasing chance of frost and fog towards the end of this period but confidence of this is very low.
