    UK forecast for the next 5 days

    Plenty of sunshine today and over the coming days.

    Today:

    After a chilly start, most of the UK will have a dry day with light winds and a lot of sunny spells. The only showers will be in the Northern Isles, though even here the overnight wind will die down.

    Tonight:

    Much of the country will have another dry and clear night though low temperatures will cause a few mist patches to form. Cloud and rain will move into northern Scotland.

    Wednesday:

    Wednesday will start off chilly, but once again warm sunshine will dominate for the rest of the day. Skies will be cloudier in northern Scotland with some outbreaks of rain.

    Outlook for Thursday to Saturday:

    The UK will have more fine weather over the coming days with chilly nights and warm days. Rain and stronger winds may move into western parts at the weekend.

    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Saturday 21 Sep 2019 to Monday 30 Sep 2019:

    Dry, sunny and warm weather is expected for many on Saturday after patchy mist and fog clears in the morning. There is a chance of thicker cloud and outbreaks of heavy rain arriving in the west during the afternoon with strengthening winds. By Sunday cooler, wet and windy weather is likely to spread east, bringing a spell of rather changeable weather into the following week. There is some uncertainty as we head towards the last week of September. On balance we should see a northwest to southeast split in the weather with the strongest winds and heaviest spells of rainfall in the northwest, and the best of the dry, warm, and sunny weather in the southeast, still with some rain at times.

    UK Outlook for Tuesday 1 Oct 2019 to Tuesday 15 Oct 2019:

    Confidence remains low through this period and a number of different weather scenarios are possible. However the most likely situation is for southeastern parts of the UK see the best of the dry weather with daytime temperatures fairly warm for the time of year. Low temperatures are likely during many of the nights, bringing an increased chance of mist, fog and rural frost. Meanwhile, the northwest of the UK is more likely to keep stronger winds with heavier rain at times. It will be cloudier in the northwest leading to lower daytime temperatures here.
