    UK Outlook for Friday 19 Oct 2018 to Sunday 28 Oct 2018:

    Friday should start with a fine spell of weather with sunny spells, once early mist and fog across southern and central parts has cleared.

From next weekend onwards it will be changeable with periods of wet and windy weather interspersed with brighter and showery spells.

    UK Outlook for Monday 29 Oct 2018 to Monday 12 Nov 2018:

    By the end of October and into early November weather systems may become slow-moving at times. This will lead to the risk of longer unsettled spells and, conversely, the chance of longer settled spells. Western and northwestern areas will probably see the wettest and windiest conditions, with the south and east often drier and brighter, although still with some rain at times too. During any generally settled and drier spells of weather there is an increasing risk of overnight frost and fog, especially in the north of the UK. On the whole temperatures are likely to be rather cold overall.
