-UK Outlook for Friday 28 Oct 2016 to Sunday 6 Nov 2016:
High pressure will remain established across the south through Friday and into the weekend, bringing a good deal of dry and quiet weather for many. However, some will see occasional mist and fog form overnight and this may well be slow to clear by day. Temperatures will be mostly above average, but with some cold nights in the south, perhaps with local frost. Meanwhile, the north could be wet and windier at times through Friday and Saturday. However, from Sunday onwards there will be much colder weather with night frosts. Later in the period there is major uncertainty with the potential for cold conditions persisting but southern areas could turn wetter, windier and milder at times.
UK Outlook for Monday 7 Nov 2016 to Monday 21 Nov 2016:
There is a lot of uncertainty with regard to this part of the forecast. At first at least it looks likely that the weather pattern will remain quite blocked, meaning that it will be slow to change and probably a stay a bit drier than normal in the west, whilst rain and showers are more likely in the east at times. With this we are also less likely to see strong winds and the typical occasional stormy conditions that we usually see during the autumn. Given the time of year, and the predominance of a blocked pattern, temperatures may be on the cold side of normal. Later in November we may start to see more unsettled, changeable and sometimes windy weather again, especially towards the northwest.-
