    UK Outlook for Sunday 29 Oct 2017 to Tuesday 7 Nov 2017:

    On Sunday and through next week, the weather will be changeable with frequent showers in the north and east, and the best of the drier and brighter conditions in the south and west. There will be bands of rain moving east or southeastwards at times bringing windier conditions, with an increasing chance of gales, especially in the north. Temperatures will be lower than this week, bringing a risk of overnight frost in many places, but most likely in the north. There is a chance of some snow, over high ground in Scotland, as the wind turns northerly and brings colder air across the UK at times. Into the second week of November, there is a chance of more prolonged settled spells, bringing an increased risk of overnight frost and fog.

    UK Outlook for Wednesday 8 Nov 2017 to Wednesday 22 Nov 2017:

    There is an increasing chance that the weather will become more settled during this period, especially across southern parts of the British Isles. As a result frost and fog will become more likely. The north may continue to have changeable conditions with the dry and bright weather interspersed with rain at times. Temperatures are most likely to be near average, although probably a little colder in some of the more settled spells, especially where any overnight fog is slow to clear.
