Met Office UK long range weather forecast (October 26 - November 4)
According to the Met Office: “The end of next week is likely to remain unsettled with more rain and showers in many areas, as well as the risk of strong winds. The heaviest rain is perhaps more likely across southern areas by this time with a risk of thundery showers.
“Gales are possible through the English Channel, and temperatures will be around normal for the time of year. Most likely remaining unsettled with spells of wet and windy weather coming in from the southwest for the remainder of the period. However, occasional easterly flow across northern areas may bring further heavy rainfall over some hills in the northeast, and elsewhere showers, sometimes sharp, are possible almost anywhere.
“Temperatures probably remaining around average, with a gradual fall as the season progresses.”
