The Weather in London in October

Updated: May 2, 2024

This post is about the weather in London in October, including what to expect with temperatures and rain, and tips on what to wear and things to do.


Afternoon temperatures early in the month are between 17-18 C (in the low to mid-60s F) falling to 13-14 C (into the mid-50s F) by the end of the month.

And on some occasions, it can reach 32-23C (into the low 70 F).

Overnight low temperatures run mostly near 10 C (50 F) early in the month to 7-8 C (the mid-40s F) towards the end of this month.


Yes, the weather is wet in London.

However, there are still about 13-15 days during this month that will see either sunny or partly sunny skies with the remainder of the month being mostly cloudy.

Some rain occurs on about 20 days this month with about 16 of these having moderate to sometimes heavy rains. 

At least you do not have to worry about any snow this time of year.


London has one of the mildest climates in the U.K.

However, as the weather is changeable, it is always best to carry an umbrella. In addition, a light to medium-weight waterproof jacket is a must.
