    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Sunday 3 Oct 2021 to Tuesday 12 Oct 2021:

    Low pressure is expected to lie close to the UK early in this period. This will bring showers or longer spells of rain, heavy at times, to many areas. Strong winds are also likely, particularly along coasts. As this area of low pressure moves away another is likely to move to the north of the UK. This will bring further showers or longer spells of rain to the north and northwest, along with the potential for strong winds. Drier and more settled conditions are expected across the south and east as high pressure builds, however there is still the possibility of some showers and bands of rain here. Temperatures are likely to start out slightly below average, before returning to near average later in the period.

    UK Outlook for Wednesday 13 Oct 2021 to Wednesday 27 Oct 2021:

    Confidence in this period is low, however the most likely outcome is for a north-south split, with low pressure and the wettest weather remaining in the north, while pressure continues to build in the south or southwest leading to drier conditions. Later in this period, there is the chance for more settled conditions to become more widely prevalent. Temperatures are likely to be around or slightly above average.
