    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Friday 24 Sep 2021 to Sunday 3 Oct 2021:

    Friday look to be widely unsettled, with much of the UK receiving showers or longer spells of rain, as well as windy conditions. Northwestern areas will likely see the heaviest rain and coastal gales. The south will see the best conditions with good sunny spells. From the weekend onwards, a very general northwest to southeast split to our weather is likely to develop. The northwest is expected to see the most of any unsettled conditions: outbreaks of rain, possibly heavy at times, and strong winds, possibly coastal gales. Drier and sunnier weather looks more likely across the southeast, though unsettled weather in the northwest could still spread here at times. Temperatures generally near or slightly below average, but may slightly rise towards the end of this period.

    UK Outlook for Monday 4 Oct 2021 to Monday 18 Oct 2021:

    Current signals, although quite weak, suggest that higher pressure is expected over the southeast during this period, giving generally settled conditions here and to eastern parts. Conversely, low pressure will tend to lie to the northwest of the UK, bringing more in the way of rain and stronger winds to northern and western areas, with a low risk of stormy conditions. This more unsettled weather could occasionally spread further towards the southeast. Temperatures are more likely to be above average through this period.
