    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Tuesday 26 Oct 2021 to Thursday 4 Nov 2021:

    Fine at first in the east on Tuesday before more prolonged, organised rain arrives in the west, with fresh to strong winds. Through the first few days of this period, Atlantic systems will continue to move in from the west, bringing heavy rain and strong, locally gale force winds. Some rainbands could become slow-moving with locally large rainfall accumulations possible, particularly over western hills. Temperatures generally around or a little above average. The rest of October will continue to see unsettled and windy weather arriving from the Atlantic, with outbreaks of potentially heavy rain for many. Wettest in the west and northwest, but still with brief dry interludes. Driest conditions likely across some south and southeastern areas.

    UK Outlook for Friday 5 Nov 2021 to Friday 19 Nov 2021:

    To start the period remaining unsettled as before, but from early to mid-November increasing chance of settled weather but confidence of this is very low. Temperatures are likely to be warmer than average for most. Perhaps some colder spells and an increasing chance of frost and fog towards the end of this period but confidence of this is very low.
