UK long range weather forecast

A north/south split in conditions is likely across the UK early in the period. On Saturday, persistent rain is expected across northwest Scotland, accompanied with widespread strong winds in the north, with a chance of coastal gales. The rest of the country will remain mostly dry and fine, with south and southeastern areas seeing the best of the sunshine. Light winds expected further south. This north/south split is likely to continue into the start of the week, with temperatures in south probably unusually warm for October possible. These temperatures are likely to trend downward towards the middle of the month, with the northwest-southeast split also slowly becoming less distinct as the weather becomes generally more changeable.


There is the potential for a slightly more settled pattern of weather during the second half of October, particularly for north-western regions which have a higher likelihood than normal for some drier spells. However, some more unsettled weather is also possible with south-eastern areas likely see more rainfall than usual for late October. Temperatures in general are expected to remain above average, with some mild nights also likely, though it could feel chilly in any clear and settled overnight conditions, with occasional mist and fog patches and touches of ground frost possible.
