Forecast summary

  • UK 5 days
  • UK 6-30 days

Regional forecast for South West England

A mild night tonight with cloud thickening.

This Evening and Tonight:

This evening cloud will tend to thicken as a weather front approaches from the north-west. That is going to give us mild conditions overnight with some outbreaks of rain at times too. Minimum Temperature 8 °C.

Saturday:

On Saturday there will be very little improvement with outbreaks of rain stubbornly holding on. It will still be mild though with temperatures for all in double figures. Maximum Temperature 13 °C.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Sunday will be a drier and brighter day however, by Monday further rain will arrive from the Atlantic and this will leave cloudy conditions on Tuesday too. Still feeling mild.

Updated at: 1552 on Fri 9 Dec 2016

UK forecast for the next 5 days

The mild theme continues with temperatures above average.

This Evening and Tonight:

For England and Wales it'll be cloudy and mild with rain at times. For Scotland and Northern Ireland it will be clearer with a scattering of showers in the west, feeling colder then recent nights.

Saturday:

A north-south split. It'll be fresher than of late in the north with sunshine and showers. Further south it'll be mild, cloudy and often wet with rain moving eastwards.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Fine and mostly dry on Sunday bar the odd shower in the west. On Monday rain will push slowly east, leaving a legacy of cloud on Tuesday. Still feeling mild.

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Wednesday 14 Dec 2016 to Friday 23 Dec 2016:

As we move through next week we are mostly likely to see a north-west to south-east split developing. During this time periods of wet and windy weather are expected to approach the UK from the west, however their eastward progression at this stage is fairly uncertain. In this type of scenario the most unsettled conditions are likely across the north and west, with drier and brighter weather for southern and eastern areas. It'll be windy at times, with the possibility of gales in the west and northwest, but it will be much less windy further south and east. It'll generally be mild with temperatures above average, however, in between weather systems temperatures will return closer to normal.

Updated at: 1222 on Fri 9 Dec 2016

UK Outlook for Saturday 24 Dec 2016 to Saturday 7 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, with the greatest likelihood of changeable conditions in the northwest, giving rain here at times.
