    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Monday 5 Oct 2020 to Wednesday 14 Oct 2020:

    An unsettled picture is likely for this period, with all parts of the country seeing showery spells as well periods of more prolonged rainfall at times. However, southern and western areas are expected to see the worst of these conditions with the most frequent and heaviest rainfall. Drier and calmer conditions could be seen at times, but likely only for short interludes. It will often be windy during this period, with a risk of gales at times, particularly along western and southwestern coasts. Overall, it is likely to feel rather cold as temperatures look set to be around average or below. During any of the brief calmer interludes overnight frost is also possible in the North.

    UK Outlook for Thursday 15 Oct 2020 to Thursday 29 Oct 2020:

    A potential change in the weather is signalled 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 would 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.
