UK long range weather forecast

Saturday should see sunny spells and scattered showers, some heavy and thundery at times and often windy. Looking ahead, the unsettled theme is set to continue with showers and longer spells of rain, especially in the west and northwest. There should be some brief episodes of more settled weather with bright and sunny spells. It will often be windy across most areas, particularly in the north and west with coastal gales possible. Temperatures should remain around average for this time of the year, although it may feel colder at times in the wind and rain. In the short-lived settled periods of drier and clearer conditions, there is the potential for some overnight frost or fog, which would be slow to clear.

Updated:


Changeable conditions could well dominate through the end of October and into the start of November, bringing further bouts of wet and windy weather. Some drier and brighter spells are likely, though these may be short-lived. Temperatures will probably be around average for the time of year, though in those drier spells, overnight frost and fog will become more widespread. In early November, the west is likely to stay on the wet and windy side, with an increasing chance of drier and brighter weather in the east. Temperatures under these conditions could feel mild by day and cool by night. Early signs for mid November indicate a return to frequent bands of rain and strong winds moving from west to east, though there is low confidence at this stage.
