-UK Outlook for Saturday 23 Sep 2017 to Monday 2 Oct 2017:
Next weekend will probably stay rather unsettled in the north and west with rain and stronger winds at times, perhaps even gales for western Scotland and Northern Ireland. Further south and east there will be more sunshine and lighter winds. It is likely to become quite warm in the daytime, though there may well be early morning mist and fog patches in the southeast following chilly nights. A similar pattern to the weather is likely to carry on well into the following week, though there is a chance that the more settled weather will spread further northwest. However, the northwest may continue to see some rain and strong winds but less so than previously. Days will become warmer generally, especially in the south and east.
UK Outlook for Tuesday 3 Oct 2017 to Tuesday 17 Oct 2017:
As we head into October there is considerable uncertainty in the forecast, although it looks most likely to be mainly settled at first, with the best of the dry and sunny weather in the south and southeast. Through the first half of October a more marked northwest-southeast split could develop again across the UK, bringing rain and strong winds across the northwest, and drier and brighter weather across the southeast. Temperatures will be close to or slightly above normal in most of the UK, with the south and southeast perhaps rather warm by day. However, in more settled spells we will continue to see some chilly nights with early morning mist and fog as well as an increased chance of frost, most likely in the north.-
