UK forecast for the next 5 days

Rain in the south today, brighter and more showery elsewhere.

Today:

It will be rather cloudy across southern England and much of Wales with outbreaks of rain, this turning heavy and persistent in places during the afternoon. Elsewhere there will be some sunshine, but also blustery showers in the northwest.

Tonight:

Rain will clear from southeast England to leave a mostly dry and frost free night with clear spells. However, it will be windy in the north, with some showery rain.

Sunday:

Sunday will be largely dry, albeit fresher, with some sunshine. However, patchy rain will affect northwest England, and the north and west of Scotland. Winds easing in the north.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

Changeable. It will often be cloudy with outbreaks of rain spreading eastwards across the British Isles. Windy at times in the north. Patchy frost at first, but generally mild.

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Thursday 15 Dec 2016 to Saturday 24 Dec 2016:

Towards the end of next week, it looks like a west-east split will develop. Frontal systems are likely to move into the west bringing outbreaks of rain, easing as they move eastwards. Pressure then looks more likely to build over the UK during next weekend, bringing drier and, at times, brighter weather for southern parts, although the north may hold onto cloud and outbreaks of rain. Temperatures are likely to be near normal, with frost patches forming where the cloud breaks. There is a large degree of uncertainty as we head towards the Christmas period, however, high pressure looks more likely to dominate leading to drier weather. Nonetheless, there are suggestions that frontal systems will move in from the west bringing spells of rain and milder interludes.

Updated at: 1159 on Sat 10 Dec 2016

UK Outlook for Sunday 25 Dec 2016 to Sunday 8 Jan 2017:

There is a good deal of uncertainty for this period as the UK remains in a battleground between higher pressure across the near continent and lower pressure in the Atlantic. The exact orientation of these will dictate conditions across the country. Currently western parts are most likely to see outbreaks of rain at times, along with relatively mild conditions, whilst eastern areas will see drier and perhaps colder conditions. There will probably also be some milder, unsettled interludes though, especially into early January.
