UK forecast for the next 5 days


Fine for most, though rain in the far northwest.


Cloudy in the north with outbreaks of rain for northwest Scotland. The odd spot of rain for eastern Scotland, but also some warm sunny spells. Morning fog patches further south clearing to warm sunshine, though often cloudy in the west.


Clear spells across much of southern and central England and Wales allowing mist and fog patches to form. Cloudier elsewhere with rain in the northwest becoming heavy over the Highlands.


A band of rain in the northwest will edge southeastwards, weakening as it goes. Sunny spells ahead of the front in the southeast, cooler with showers following from the northwest.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

Monday and Tuesday see some wet and windy weather across northern Scotland. Otherwise, a good deal of dry weather throughout, but increasingly cloudy. Chilly on Monday, then turning less cold.

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Thursday 25 Oct 2018 to Saturday 3 Nov 2018:

Once early mist clears on Thursday, fine weather is expected in the south and west, but more cloud, stronger winds and patchy rain are likely in the north and east. From Friday, a change to much colder weather is expected. By next weekend, chilly north winds could bring snow to higher ground in Scotland, Northern Ireland and northern England, and perhaps occasionally to lower levels in the north, though snow isn't likely to settle at lower levels. Winds will often be strong with accompanying rain or showers, though there will be some drier brighter interludes. After some frosty starts, southern England and Wales will be mostly dry and bright but chilly with the best of the sunshine in the southwest. However, showers near eastern coasts may be wintry.

UK Outlook for Sunday 4 Nov 2018 to Sunday 18 Nov 2018:

Cold northerly winds are expected to predominate for a few more days. The weather may be changeable with strong winds, rain or showers at times, especially in the north. The rain could change to snow at times on northern hills. Cold nights are likely to be widespread, bringing a risk of ice where roads and pavements are wet from daytime showers. Towards the middle of the month, there are signs that high pressure may become more dominant in the north, which would bring milder temperatures in the day and less wind and rain. However, night fog and frost would become more likely. Meanwhile, more changeable and milder weather may become established across the south and west, with some rain here at times.
