UK long range weather forecast

A wet start to the period on Sunday with showers, sometimes heavy in the west and risk of thunderstorms in the northwest. Turning windier again with a chance of coastal gales in the west and northwest. Becoming more settled early in the week, especially in the west. Initially cold, with chance of overnight rural frost, and showers wintry over highest ground. Temperatures trending upwards through the period. The rest of October will be dominated by weather arriving from the Atlantic. Often unsettled and windy, with outbreaks of rain. Wettest in the north and west. Briefer dry interludes. Driest conditions likely across south and southeastern areas. Winds lighter here, with risk of overnight fog at times.

Updated:

The beginning of this period will likely remain unsettled with many systems arriving from the Atlantic. It will remain wet and windy with the wettest and windiest conditions in the north and west. Driest conditions across the south especially the southeast with lighter winds but the risk of overnight fog at times. From early to mid-November increasing chance of settled weather but confidence of this is very low. Temperatures are likely to be warmer than average for most. Perhaps some colder spells and an increasing chance of frost and fog towards the end of this period but confidence of this is very low.
