It will turn cloudier from the northwest during Friday, with some outbreaks of patchy light rain and drizzle, mainly on the hills.

It will be drier elsewhere and less cold than previous days, however, it is expected to be breezy, so it is still worth taking necessary precautions by wearing a hat, scarf and coat. The maximum temperature will be 12C.

For some towns and cities, Bonfire Night celebrations will take place on Saturday, November 6, when it is expected to be wet and windy weather in southeastern areas of Yorkshire.

UK weather forecast for next week

According to the Met Office, it’s possible that there will be blustery showers in the east and north east at the start of the week, but they will be quickly clearing.

Generally, there will be plenty of fine, dry weather with long spells of sunshine. Initially it will feel colder, with possible frosty weather, particularly in the north.

There will be rain and thicker clouds steadily encroaching from the west. Places with low pressure to the north or northwest of the UK will then bring unsettled conditions, largely affecting the north and west, with some heavy rain and strong winds, followed by cooler, more showery periods.

“The driest and brightest weather is likely to be in the southeast where rain bands will often be weak,” the weather service said.

“Temperatures generally around average through this period, although brief cold spells are possible.”
