UK long range weather forecast

The end of September is likely to see a mixture of showers, periods of heavier rain and some brief, drier interludes. The wettest conditions are most probable across north-western areas and may be accompanied by spells of strong winds. Elsewhere, it is likely to be calmer, with eastern and south-eastern areas expected to see the best of any dry or bright spells, though this does not discount unsettled weather in these areas. Temperatures are likely close to, or slightly above average, with some mild nights. The changeable theme will likely continue into early October, with settled spells and periods of rain and showers, but there is a chance of a more prolonged period of settled weather, most probable in the southeast, which might also lead to some chillier nights.

Updated:

A continuation of the gradually increasing chance of more prolonged settled spells until around mid-month, particularly in the the SE, at which point there are signs of a change of type. A north/south split looks increasingly probable with it being drier than average in the north and wetter than average in the south. Above average temperatures are more likely than below overall, though in any settled spells some chilly nights and morning fog patches will continue to occur.
