Today:

Today should be a fine, dry and settled day with plenty of sunshine and a light south-easterly wind. It will continue to feel cold though. Maximum Temperature 6 °C.

Tonight:

Cloud will steadily thicken from the south overnight. This will also be accompanied by mist and fog, and perhaps a few spots of drizzle by dawn. Minimum Temperature -2 °C.

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Cloudy and misty in the south. Brighter in the north.

Today:

A cloudy day, with mist and fog in much of southern England and Wales. Brighter in the north and parts of the east, but cold again, aside from the far south-west.

Tonight:

Clear and frosty in the north, elsewhere mostly cloudy with mist and fog. Winds will be light and it'll be much milder than recent nights.

Tuesday:

Dry and cloudy with hill fog for most of the UK. Strong winds and rain affecting the north and west of Scotland later. Mild in the south and west.

Outlook for Wednesday to Friday:

Becoming more unsettled. An increasing south-westerly wind will bring milder weather and less widespread frosts, but also cloud and occasional spells of rain.

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Friday 9 Dec 2016 to Sunday 18 Dec 2016:

After a bright start in the north/north-east on Friday, it is likely to turn cloudier as rain and strong winds spread from the west across all parts. The rain may linger in the south next Saturday but it should be drier and brighter in the north. There are then likely to be further periods of wet and windy weather through the following week. The most unsettled conditions are expected in the north-west with drier and brighter weather for southern and eastern areas. The somewhat changeable weather is then likely to be replaced by more settled conditions by the end of the period. Temperatures are also likely to return closer to normal for the middle of December, after something of a milder period.

UK Outlook for Monday 19 Dec 2016 to Monday 2 Jan 2017:

Whilst there is some uncertainty, it is most likely that high pressure is going to build through the second half of December, and so the weather should be more settled across the UK. If the pressure does build, then we can expect drier than average conditions for most areas with lighter winds. Temperatures are also then likely to be below average with an increased risk of frost and fog, especially where skies remain clear overnight. There is the potential for some more unsettled periods, but these look less likely.
