Forecast summary

  • Regional
  • UK 5 days
  • UK 6-30 days

Regional forecast for South West England

Bright and breezy and feeling colder.

Today:

Early rain soon clearing to leave a bright and breezy day with plenty of winter sunshine. The brisk northwesterly wind making it feel much colder than recent days. Dry for most, but an isolated shower possible. Maximum Temperature 10C.

Tonight:

Lengthy clear spells overnight, with just the odd shower possible in the west. The strength of the wind should prevent a frost. Minimum Temperature 4C.

Saturday:

Another largely dry and bright day with lots more sunshine. The wind should start to ease a little through the day. Maximum Temperature 10C.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Turning milder again, but largely cloudy and breezy with outbreaks of rain or drizzle throughout the period.

Updated at: 0231 on Fri 19 Dec 2014

UK forecast for the next 5 days

Wintry showers in the north. Plenty of sunshine elsewhere.

Today:

Rain in the south soon clearing this morning. Blustery showers in the north, often heavy and locally wintry. A few showers for other western areas too. Otherwise, plenty of sunshine but feeling colder for all with a brisk northwesterly wind.

Tonight:

Remaining windy with further wintry showers in the north. Largely dry for central and southern areas with lengthy clear spells, though the strength of the wind preventing a widespread frost.

Saturday:

Blustery, wintry showers in the north gradually easing through the day. The strong northwesterly wind easing a little too. Otherwise largely dry with more winter sunshine, but feeling cold.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Turning milder again, but largely cloudy with outbreaks of rain or drizzle at times. Colder and clearer conditions in the far north then spread southwards through Tuesday and Tuesday night.

Updated at: 0231 on Fri 19 Dec 2014

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Wednesday 24 Dec 2014 to Friday 2 Jan 2015:

A band of cloud and rain is likely to be affecting many central parts of the UK at first on Christmas Eve, clearing the southeast later. Colder conditions then spreading to many areas, continuing into Christmas day, with some wintry showers across N areas. Probably becoming increasingly unsettled into the weekend, with the risk of persistent heavy rain, gales and also a risk of significant snow, this more likely across some northern parts. Conditions after Christmas likely to remain predominantly cold across the N, but with the chance of milder interludes across the far south. Otherwise the following week looks perhaps rather cold on the whole, with snow showers likely across many northern areas but milder, wetter interludes possible at times. Generally windy for many throughout.

UK Outlook for Saturday 3 Jan 2015 to Saturday 17 Jan 2015:

The most likely scenario for the coming New Year is for a continuation of changeable, and at times windy weather coming from the Atlantic with the wettest weather probably across western parts of the UK, and eastern parts most likely to see the best of any dry weather. In between the wetter periods there should be drier, brighter, and colder spells. Temperatures are most likely to be around or slightly below average for the time of year with overnight frosts and some snow expected, particularly over the high ground.
