-----UK, Met Office - Longer Range Forecast, for the entire UK   Met Office.:
---------
Sunday 25 Oct - Tuesday 3 Nov
Unsettled conditions are expected to dominate during the period, with most parts of the UK seeing plenty of cloud and outbreaks of rain and showers. It will often be windy, with a risk of gales or even severe gales, especially in coastal areas. The wettest and windiest weather is likely to be found in the west and north-west of the country. However, some brief bright and dry spells are still likely at times in all parts of the UK, with the most settled conditions probably found across eastern and south-eastern areas. Overall, temperatures are generally looking to be close to normal for the time of year. Conditions may turn more settled close to the end of the period, particularly in the south.
Wednesday 4 Nov - Wednesday 18 Nov
Confidence is currently low for this period but there is an increased chance of more settled weather during November, especially in the south of the UK. Showery and windier conditions may remain more prevalent in the north. Temperatures probably trending to normal overall, with overnight frost and fog becoming more likely in any settled spells. ---------
