    UK Outlook for Wednesday 31 Oct 2018 to Wednesday 14 Nov 2018:

    For the end of October, unsettled conditions are likely. Bands of rain could move across the country, separated by brighter and more showery conditions, especially in more northern and eastern areas. However, the southwest will probably stay more settled. Into early November, the weather pattern is likely to become slower moving.
