    Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

    UK Outlook for Monday 2 Nov 2020 to Wednesday 11 Nov 2020:

    Conditions are expected to remain unsettled into the beginning of November, with outbreaks of rain at first, followed by a more showery regime. Strong winds are also likely to continue for the first few days of November, with gales possible at times. However, it will likely feel milder, particularly in the south. A change to more settled conditions is then expected midway through this period with any showers or longer spells of rain most likely affecting northern areas. Elsewhere, the south of the UK has an increased likelihood of seeing the best of this dry and settled weather. Winds possibly becoming light across the south with the strongest winds confined to the north. These more settled conditions bring an increased risk of colder weather with overnight frost and morning fog.

    UK Outlook for Thursday 12 Nov 2020 to Thursday 26 Nov 2020:

    Settled weather is likely to continue until the middle of November, with high pressure looking to dominate. This will bring dry and settled conditions, especially for the south of the UK whereas any wet windy weather will be mostly confined to the north. Confidence lowers for the second half of November but current signals suggest an autumnal setup with colder conditions developing and more frequent showers, with the heaviest of these showers affecting the east of the UK. Another spell of drier, more settled conditions is possible towards the end of November, but confidence remains low for this. Despite the settled conditions in the south temperatures are expected to be lower than average for the time of year, whereas they will be closer to normal in the north.
