UK long range weather forecast

A generally unsettled start to this period across the UK with sunshine and showers, which could be heavy at times. Cloud and rain will most likely spread from the west or southwest to affect all areas at times. Temperatures likely around normal or slightly below. Into October, the unsettled regime is likely to continue dominating the UK weather. Low pressure systems will bring showers or longer periods of rain to most parts of the country, with the highest rainfall expected in the west and northwest. Winds may become strong at times, most likely in the northwest. A shift towards more settled weather could possibly begin at the end of this period. Temperatures rather cold at first, then trending close to average.

Updated:

Drier and more settled conditions are likely to become more prevalent across the UK through this period, especially in the south. Some periods of wetter weather remain probable at times, most likely in the northwest. Temperatures are expected to trend near to or slightly above average.
