UK forecast for the next 5 days

Outlook for the UK over the next 6-30 days

UK Outlook for Wednesday 26 Nov 2014 to Friday 5 Dec 2014:

High pressure and settled conditions over the northeast will decline through Wednesday as unsettled weather across the south and southwest extends northwards. There will be spells of rain in the south and associated strengthening winds. Northeastern areas are most likely to see the best of any drier and brighter weather, with the risk of overnight frost and fog under clear spells. The unsettled conditions are likely to spread to all parts from Thursday onwards, with the heaviest rain and strongest winds most likely to affect western areas. Eastern areas are likely to see the best of any drier interludes. Temperatures will mostly be around normal for the time of year, with some chilly starts and occasional overnight frost.

UK Outlook for Saturday 6 Dec 2014 to Saturday 20 Dec 2014:

The most probable scenario is for a continuation of unsettled and, at times, windy weather, especially in western parts of the UK, with eastern parts seeing the best of any dry weather. Temperatures are generally expected to be around or a little above average for the time of year. There is a chance of some overnight and morning frost and fog in places - this will be more likely across northern areas where there is also a chance of some snow on higher ground.
