UK long range weather forecast

Rain and strong winds will spread eastwards across the UK on Thursday, with gales possible in the north and west. It will stay unsettled for the end of September, with a mixture of some sunny days, and cloudier days with more persistent rainfall. It is likely to be windy at times, with the potential for gales, particularly in the west and southwest. Temperatures will vary around normal, but in any drier spells, they may be warmer than average. Into the start of October, it is most likely that we will see a continuation of the changeable weather, although this is not certain yet. We could also see a return of more settled weather for the southeast, but still, in the northwest, it may remain unsettled, with wind and rain.

Updated:


Confidence in the forecast remains low through this period. However, early October may bring spells of fine and settled weather. This would bring bright days, but with the increasing risk of overnight mist, fog and some frost. Northern and western parts of the country may continue to see some rain at times, and this might spread across the rest of the country as we go through October. Temperatures are likely to be close to the average, but with settled weather, this will bring warmer days and cooler nights.
