UK long range weather forecast

On Thursday, cloud and rain are expected to move southeast, with clearer conditions ahead of this in the far south at first. A mixture of clear and sunny spells, with occasional wintry showers are expected in the far north, with a chance of rain later. For the rest of the period, settled conditions are expected to continue in many places, particularly in the south. As a result, dry conditions and sunny spells are likely, with a risk of overnight fog patches in the southeast. Changeable weather conditions, with cloud and outbreaks of rain and drizzle are expected in north, with strong winds and a risk of gales possible in north and northwest. Temperatures overall will be rather mild in the north and northwest, but closer to average in the south.

Updated:

During the period, generally settled weather conditions are expected across the UK. Frontal systems bringing rain and strong winds are expected in the northwest, perhaps spreading further into the southeast at times, although much of the south and southeast may stay largely dry. Temperatures overall will be above normal, with a small chance of colder conditions.
